A few months ago, the new Facebook function, called Silent Mode, arrived in Spain. This is a function with which we can silence notifications of the social network for as long as we want, so that they do not bother us. Although not only Facebook has a function of this type, since Instagram also makes use of one.

Instagram is an application that also emit quite a few notifications on Android, something that not all users like. Luckily, you can make sure there are times when the app won’t issue any notifications. This is possible thanks to the function of silencing notifications that is in its settings.

There are times when you would like notifications on Android not to bother you. One solution on the phone is to use Do Not Disturb Mode, which gives us many options. But they may be notifications from a specific app the ones you want to silence for a certain time. This is precisely what we can do with Instagram notifications, which we will be able to silence for the desired time. The steps to follow are:

  1. Open Instagram on your phone.
  2. Go to your profile.
  3. Click on the three horizontal stripes in the upper right.
  4. Go into Settings.
  5. Go to Notifications.
  6. Tap Pause All.
  7. Choose how long you want to silence notifications.

This Pause All option is a way to mute all notifications that the application emits on Android. Whether they are push notifications, notifications because someone has commented on your photos or because someone wants to follow your account, none of them will be issued during the time you have this option activated in the application. After this time has passed, all of them will be displayed on the phone normally.

This feature of silencing notifications on Instagram gives us to choose several intervals, up to 8 hours. They do not give us the possibility of setting the desired time, so we can silence them for a maximum of 8 hours and if we want to silence them again, this process will have to be repeated once these 8 hours have passed.
