Knowing this type of characteristics is important to protect privacy. However, if you are someone who wants to allow only some of your images to be used by third parties, you can still configure it. For this you will have to make a manual configuration to each image or content that you upload to the platform. Through the “More” menu of each publication you can do it this way. In this way you can prevent third parties or anyone from making use of the images, photos, videos and content that you upload to your Instagram profile. This way you protect your products and at the same time maintain your privacy.
