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 Menu in the upper right corner.
  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.
