How does Instagram determine my primary location?
Your primary location is determined by features we use to support Instagram, including:
  • Connection information, such as your device’s IP address.
  • Activity from the use of Instagram, such as location tags for photos, videos, or posts you engage with.
Even if you do not have Location Services enabled, Instagram can still gather information about your location based on information that you and others provide through your activities and connections on our services.
Instagram uses your primary location to help keep your accounts secure, provide a more relevant experience on Instagram and show you ads for businesses and services you might be interested in.
