Instagram is expanding access to new restrictions on direct messages (DMs). These restrictions, which the company began testing in June, will limit DMs from users you don’t follow to text-only invites. The recipient must accept the invite before you can send any other messages. Users will only be able to send one invite per user.

These restrictions will help users avoid bots and spammers who send offensive images and videos in DM requests. They will also benefit female users, who are often sent unsolicited nudes.

Instagram first announced the new DM control options in June, along with other security and safety improvements across Facebook and Instagram. These updates are designed to help improve the messaging experience for everyone, especially younger users.

As more and more interactions are happening in DMs, Meta is committed to providing users with the tools they need to stay safe. These new options will help to limit unwanted contact and could go a long way in helping users avoid IG creeps.
