How do I turn on Dark Mode for Instagram?
Dark mode cannot be turned on or off in the Instagram app for iPhone and can only be adjusted in your iPhone's device settings.
Dark Mode adjusts the colors on your screen for a darker appearance. To turn on Dark Mode for Instagram, go to your iPhone device settings or Android device settings.
Keep in mind that:
  • You’ll need to update your device’s operating system to iOS 13 or Android 10 as well as your Instagram app.
  • By turning on Dark Mode in your device’s settings, you may see Dark Mode activated on several apps, not just Instagram.
Android users can also turn Dark Mode for Instagram on or off in the Instagram app.
To turn Dark Mode on or off from the Instagram app for Android:
  1. Tap instagram-user-profile or your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  2. Tap Menu in the top right.
  3. Tap SettingsSettings, then tap Theme.
  4. Tap Dark or Light.
You don't have to update your device's operating system to Android 10 to access this setting in the Instagram app. This will only activate Dark Mode on the Instagram app.
