Instagram has made some updates to make it easier to keep the social media platform a positive place for everyone. One of the new features to reduce bullying is the ability to bulk delete Instagram comments on the iOS app. Read on for how to use the feature…

Instagram has been continuing its efforts to fight online bullying and one of the latest examples is being able to quickly bulk delete up to 25 comments at a time.

Keep in mind if you’re regularly having trouble with negative or offensive comments, you may also want to head to Instagram Settings > Privacy > Comments > and customize your “Allow Comments From” and/or “Block Comments From” details. But in any case, the ability to bulk delete comments will be welcomed by many users.

Instagram is also rolling out the ability for users to control who can include you in a mention or tag. You’ll find those settings when available in the same Settings > Privacy section inside Instagram for iPhone.
