You have to be 13 or older to join Instagram. However, there are some things posted on Instagram that might not be appropriate for even teenagers.

This is where age limits come in. If you have an Instagram Business or Creator account, there’s a feature in your settings menu that allows you to set the minimum age for people to see your account.

This feature is perfect for businesses like nightclubs, or artists who want to make sure nobody under 21 can see their content. You can even age restrict by country — for example, you could set the limit to 21 in the US, but 18 in places like Canada or the UK.

Here’s how to set an age limit on your account using the Instagram app for iPhone and Android devices.

3. In the settings menu, tap “Business” or “Creator.”

If you don’t see these options, it means you don’t have a Business or Creator account. You can change this in your Account menu.

5. From here, you have two options: Simply add one overarching default minimum age, or set restrictions selectively by country. 

To add a single default age, simply tap the “Add” button to the right of the “Default” option and enter the desired minimum age.

To specify the age limit by country, tap the “Add” button next to “By Country” instead, and follow the on-screen instructions to select a country.
