An end-to-end encrypted chat on Instagram is intended just for you and the person you’re talking to. Note that this is only available in chats with one other account.
  1. Tap send or messenger in the top right of Feed.
  2. Tap compose in the top right.
  3. Tap lock next to Start end-to-end-encrypted chat.
  4. Select the account you want to start an end-to-end encrypted chat with or search for their name at the top.
  5. Tap Chat in the top right.
You’ll see encrypted on chats that are end-to-end encrypted. Any other conversations you have with that account will appear as a separate chat in your Chats list.
