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. Follow Requests will appear in your Activity.

To approve a request, tap Confirm. To deny a request, tap Delete (iPhone) or x (Android).

If you accidentally deny a follow request, you can ask the person to request to follow you again.
