How to make your Instagram account private?

The blocked users can still be able to see your photos by logging out so make sure you turn on the private photo sharing option for your account. 
  1. Open the Instagram app. You can only change your privacy options from within the Instagram app. When you make your account private, you'll need to approve each person that follows you before they can see your posts. This ensures that people you block cannot create new accounts or log out to see your content.
  2. Open your profile. You can get to this by tapping the silhouette at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Open the Settings menu. Tap the gear icon (iOS) or the ? button (Android) in the upper right corner of your profile. This will allow you to change your privacy settings.
  4. Toggle "Private Account" on. You will be asked to confirm if you want to. When your account is set to private, only your approved Followers can view the photo. This will prevent blocked users from creating a new account to view your posts.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
