Finally, a Dark Mode for Instagram—and this brings the app at per with some other popular ones like Gmail, Twitter, and Pinterest. I am sure you would like the new feature especially when you consider how popular dark theme has become in recent years.

In case you did not know, Dark Mode is mild to the eyes, and does not leave them with any strain. As a matter of fact, the feature is so popular among users because it allows you to browse Instagram when the lights are out—and does not leave your eyes with any strain.

One other thing the Dark Mode has going for it is the fact that it saves your battery life. So, you can count on it for an extended battery life, which is a big plus for millions of users out there.

Dark Mode on Instagram is currently only available on iOS 13 and Android 10. Hopefully this change soon so that other older versions can get to see the new feature. The reason why this has been restricted to iOS 13 is because the feature can only be accessed through Apple’s new settings. Open the Settings menu, tap on Display and Brightness and press the Dark option on the right, and Instagram will flip automatically to the mode.

This process can be used by Android 10 users who also need to go to the Settings menu. The good news, however, is that Android users who do not have Android 10 can activate Dark Mode within the app’s Settings.

What does this tell us about Facebook’s future plans for Dark Mode? Apparently the social media giant is working on something because it seems to be the only major network not to have the feature just yet. However, there are reports that the social media behemoth is currently working on something.

Instagram on Monday announced a new feature that is aimed at helping you to identify phishing emails. The new method of checking the authenticity of an email from Instagram involves going into your account settings, and visiting the “Emails from Instagram” tab to get a list of every Instagram’s correspondences received earlier from the company.

Sometimes it is difficult to identify such emails as they often look like the real one. Senders of such emails use Instagram logos, which tend to confuse the recipients—and that makes this latest move by the social media giant a very crucial one.

To find the new feature, simply go to Settings > Security > Emails from your Instagram account. A “Security” tab will display a list of the emails sent by Instagram in the last 14 days as they pertain to your account security and the locations from which you are logged in. a second tab, tagged “other” will display any remaining emails sent by Instagram to you covering the same period.
