How do I approve or deny a follower request on Instagram?
If your account is set to private, anyone who wants to see your photos or videos will have to send you a follower request.
To approve or deny a follower request on Instagram:
- Tap at the top to see Follow Requests.
- Tap Confirm to approve a request. Tap Delete (iPhone) or (Android) to deny a request.
If you accidentally deny a follow request, you can ask the person to request to follow you again.
