There are many dangers of Instagram. If you use Instagram, make sure that you are aware of its harmful effects that can cause serious problems, such as:

  • On Instagram people may spy on you even if they don’t know you. They may start following you with a fake name/profile and you may not notice that it is a fake profile.
  • Your pictures may be misused. Anyone, a jealous friend or an enemy may take your picture (or take its screenshot), and edit it badly and put on the Internet, on Facebook and many other places.
  • Instagram can be addictive. Many people who use Instagram tend to spend too much time on it, just watching other's photos and sharing theirs.
  • Instagram reserves the right to reuse, reproduce and distribute any image shared publicly on Instagram. How shocking it is!
  • Teens often give away their personal information to others including their location, which may be used against them.
  • There is no filter to prevent yourself from seeing violent, explicit, adult-natured pictures. Seeing these photos by youngsters may have bad effect on children.
  • A variety of people are on Instagram, hence it is easy for someone to become victim of cyber bullying, and this can result to horrific situations.
