Set Up a Minimum Age for Your Instagram Account

You have the ability to control the age of your Instagram content’s viewers by setting up a minimum age for your account. You can choose to set up a default minimum age that will be applied everywhere, or you can set up country-specific minimum ages to follow local policies.

Note that you must have an Instagram professional account to control your viewers' age.

To set up a minimum age for your Instagram account:

  1. Go to your profile and tap .
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Select Business or Creator depending on your profile type.
  4. Tap Minimum Age.
  5. You can add a default age that will be applied everywhere. You can also add ages by country. Country-specific ages will only replace the default age for that country.
