Prevent your posts from being shared on Instagram stories 1

Instagram is one of the most popular social networks in Spain, with millions of users. Stories have become an especially popular element in this app, something that you have surely noticed, as many of the accounts you follow upload stories on a daily basis. There are times when these stories show posts from other accounts.

The posts you upload to your Instagram account can be shared by other accounts in their stories on the social network, either just your friends if you have a private account or anyone in the case of having a public account. If you don’t like this idea, you can easily prevent others from sharing it.
