How To On Quiet Mode In Instagram

Imagine this: you’re working on an important task, and suddenly your phone buzzes with yet another Instagram notification. You’re constantly getting interrupted, which breaks your concentration and productivity. Does this sound familiar? Don’t worry, Instagram has a feature to help you out. It’s called “Quiet Mode”. This feature allows you to pause notifications from the app for a certain period of time. Here’s how to turn it on.

Step by Step Guide

Step 1: Open Instagram

First off, locate Instagram on your phone and tap to open it. Make sure that you’re logged into the account for which you want to turn on the quiet mode.

Step 2: Go to Your Profile

Once you’re on the app’s home screen, navigate to your profile by tapping on the small icon in the bottom right corner that looks like a person’s silhouette.

Step 3: Open Settings

Next, tap on the three horizontal lines in the top right corner of your profile page, then tap on “Settings” from the drop-down menu that appears.

Step 4: Go to Notifications

In the settings menu, find and tap on the “Notifications” option.

Step 5: Turn on Pause All

Inside the Notifications menu, you will see a section titled “Pause All”. Simply tap on it, and you’ll see options to pause notifications for a certain period of time. Choose the duration that works best for your needs.

And voila! You’ve successfully turned on quiet mode on Instagram. No more distractions from unnecessary notifications!


Keep in mind that even when quiet mode is active, notifications for direct messages and tagged posts will still come through. This is designed so that you won’t miss any important message or tag. However, if you want to pause these as well, you can do so in the “Direct Messages” and “Photos of You” sections in the Notifications settings.

Stay focused, stay productive, and enjoy your quiet mode on Instagram!
