    Are you an Instagram user and tired of push notifications? The social media application notifies its users if their followers tag them in a post, likes or comments on your post, etc. It can be noted that Instagram push notifications are message pop-ups or alerts which are generally activated when someone you follow messages you, likes or comments on your post or even posts something. Instagram explains it this way, “We may send notifications for several reasons, including when someone: Follows you, likes or comments on one of your photos or videos, mentions you in a comment, sends you a message, goes live.”

    You can choose to get Instagram push notifications when someone likes or comments on your post. If you have notifications turned on, you can also choose accounts that you want to receive notifications about. Here is all you need to do:
