Making offensive comments on social media is a rising menace today, and every polite user would never welcome such harassment. Instagrammers are victimized by some social media rioters with harassment comments. If you are using iPhone or iPad to upload photos and receiving such unacceptable comments, you can hide inappropriate comments in Instagram on your iPhone or iPad.

The Comments section in Instagram has got two filters: Automatic Filter and Manual Filter. You can hide offensive comments by using Automatic Filter in Instagram on your iOS device as well as Android. The filter automatically hides comments that may be offensive from your posts.

Note that you can also use Turn Off Commenting feature after uploading your photo on Instagram.
