How do I turn Instagram location services on or off for my iPhone?
This feature may be unavailable if you're located in Europe or messaging an account based in Europe to respect new messaging service rules. We're working to bring it back.
To turn location services on or off:
- Leave the Instagram app and go to your iPhone's Settings.
- Tap Privacy, then tap Location Services.
- Scroll down and tap Instagram.
- Select Never or While Using the App to choose location access.
Instagram's default setting for location is off, but you can turn location on whenever you post a photo. You'll choose whether or not to allow Instagram access to your location.
