Instagram filter

Hey,

I'm looking for a filter/policy to block instagram pages that contain specific hashtags. Is this possible and how to configure it ?

Thx for your feedback.

Hello,

I did some research for it and it seems blocking based on hashtag is not available as now.

I looked at it, and it appears that blocking based on hashtag is not yet possible here

Thx for your reply. This confirms what I tested by using the webfilter with expression feature. Is there any other feature/configuration that allows Instagram but blocks some pages on instagram. I was thinking about :

- deep packet inspection

- fortiguard classification

Other options ?

Hi There,

 

Unfortunately, Instagram's official app does not offer a built-in feature to block pages based on specific hashtags. However, you can consider using third-party applications like Instagram Honista, which provides more advanced filtering options. Instagram Honista allows you to block content by hashtags, giving you greater control over what you see on your feed. It's a reliable solution for managing your Instagram experience more effectively.

 

Hope this helps!
