How do I turn notifications on or off for someone I follow on Instagram?

When you turn on notifications for someone you follow, you'll get a notification every time that they share a photo or video. To turn notifications on or off:

Instagram app for Android and iPhone:
  1. Go to their profile.
  2. Tap Following, then tap Notifications.
  3. Tap next to Posts, Stories or IGTV to turn notifications on or off.
  4. Or tap next to Live Videos and select any notification option.
IGTV app for Android and iPhone:
  1. Go to their profile by searching for their username or tapping their username in Feed.
  2. Tap Following, then tap Notifications.
  3. Tap next to IGTV to turn notifications on or off.
  4. Or tap next to Live Videos and select any notification option.

If you'd like to turn notifications on or off for multiple people, you'll have to visit each profile and turn them on or off individually. Keep in mind that you may get a push notification when someone you follow shares something for the first time in a while, whether or not you have notifications turned on for that person.

People aren't notified when you turn notifications on or off for them.
