A few tips for using the Instagram app in Opera’s sidebar

Make your Instagram account private. Click your profile button in the top-right, then the settings icon next to your username. Select Privacy and Security, then check the box that says Private account.

Avoid accidentally liking photos in Instagram by using the Opera browser with the Instagram web feature built into the sidebar. Then you can only like photos by clicking with your mouse, rather than tapping.

Filter keywords in Instagram. Click your profile button in the top-right, then the settings icon. Select Privacy and Security, followed by Edit Comment Settings. Add keywords to automatically hide comments that contain them.

See all the Instagram photos you are tagged in by going to your profile and selecting the photo icon on the right (looks like a person inside a speech bubble).

Enable Instagram’s two-factor authentication. Click your profile button in the top-right, then the settings icon next to your name. Select Privacy and Security, and click on Edit Two-Factor Authentication Settings. Choose text message authentication or use an authentication app.

Change Instagram notification settings. With Instagram in Opera’s sidebar, click your profile button in the top-right, then the settings icon next to your name. Select Notifications and choose how you want to be notified.

Find your Facebook friends on Instagram by clicking Connect to Facebook on your homepage. Instagram will show you all your friends who have an Instagram account.

Download all of your Instagram data. Click your profile button in the top-right, then the settings icon next to your username. Select Privacy and Security, then click Request Download. You will be emailed a file link with your photos, comments, profile data and other information.

Send direct messages in Instagram by clicking on the Instagram messenger icon in the top-right. It looks like a paper airplane.

Clear your Instagram search history. If you are using the Instagram desktop feature in Opera’s sidebar, go to your profile button in the top-right, then the settings icon next to your name. Select Privacy and Security, and then click View Account Data. Under Search History, select View All and click Clear Search History.

Check your Instagram login activity. Select your profile button in the top-right, then the settings icon next to your name. Select Login Activity to see your activity and confirm whether or not it was you.

Search on Instagram for posts near you. Click the search field in the top-center. Type in your current city and make sure to click the one with the map icon, rather than any hashtag.

See who is following you on Instagram. Go to your profile button in the top-right, then the settings icon next to your name. Select Privacy and Security, and then click View Account Data. Under Accounts following you, click View All.
