Instagram protects users from unwanted DMs

A new update will be made available on Instagram, which is owned by Meta, to better safeguard users from unsolicited DMs.

Two additional limitations will apply to users who want to send DM requests to users who do not follow them as a result of this new feature.

First, instead of sending unending DM requests to those who don’t follow them, users will only be able to send them one message. Second, since direct message invitations are now just text-based, users can only send images, movies, or audio messages to those who don’t follow them once they accept the invitation to chat.

The new restrictions will prevent users from receiving unwanted images or videos from people they do not follow, nor will strangers be able to repeatedly message them.
