Instagram added the ability to tag photos this week. Similar to
photo tagging on Facebook, your friends can now tag you in
their Instagram photos so that the image shows up on your
profile as well.
It’s a fantastic feature if you want to share those photos with
the world, but what if your friend adds a picture of you that
you’d rather people not see? Luckily, there's a quick and easy
way to remove a tag, as well as a way to make sure no photos
make it to your profile without your permission.
Much like how it’s handled on Facebook, when you’re tagged
in a photo on Instagram the app sends you a notification.
Tagged images are added to a “Photos of You” tab on your
Tap on the tag in an offending photo to bring up a dialogue
box of options. From there you can choose to hide the photo
from your profile, remove the tag, or report the photo in
general as inappropriate.
If you’d rather not be tagged in any photos you can set things
up that way as well. Simply select the Settings menu from the
Photos of You section, and then change the selection from
“Add Automatically” to “Add Manually.” Now, you’ll have to
approve any photos that get added to your profile page.
