How to activate Instagram notifications of a profile from Android

If you want to know how to activate Instagram notifications of a profile by acting from a device Android, know that all you have to do is go to the profile of your interest, call up the menu relating to the management of the notifications of the latter and act directly from there.

First, therefore, access Instagram from its official app and go to the profile on which you intend to act: to do so, press the icon of the magnifying glass (bottom left), type the username of the account of your interest in search bar located at the top and tap on the correct occurrence.



Once you are on the profile of your interest, start following it (if you don't already follow it) by clicking on the button Follow. If it is a private profile, you will have to wait for the user to accept your request (please note that they may or may not). Once you have added the profile to your followers, click on the button Follow already and, in the box that opens, tap on the item Notifications. Then move up ON the switches located in correspondence with the items Post, Stories e IGTV (depending on the content you want to receive notifications for). As for live videos, tap on the item Live video and make sure the wording is selected All.

Also, make sure that you have not muted the display of posts and stories for the account in question. To do this, after pressing the button Follow already, tap on the wording Silence and make sure that the switch levers placed next to the items Post e Stories are moved to OFF (otherwise you do it).



Finally, I recommend that you also check that you have not blocked the notifications for the Instagram app in the Android settings: to do this, go to the menu Settings> Notifications> Instagram and, if necessary, move up ON the relative levetta all'opzione Consenti notified.
