Instagram Quiet Mode: How To Turn It On & Use It 2024
April 1st, 2024 by Terri Pinyerd

Ever noticed the crescent moon icon on the Instagram app? This icon signifies that the quiet mode option - one of Instagram's new features to help users combat smartphone addiction - is enabled for that user.


What Happens When Quiet Mode Is Enabled


Quiet mode mutes notifications during the time period you choose, allowing you to browse uninterrupted. This is perfect for users who just want to silence notifications within the Instagram app but not change their overall phone settings.


While in quiet mode you can still use the Instagram app as usual, including sending and receiving messages, you just won't receive Instagram notifications about DMs or post interactions.


Your green active dot will change to a small crescent moon icon, and any other Instagram users that try to send you Instagram messages will receive an auto reply informing them that you're on quiet mode.

You can turn on quiet mode for up to 12 hours each day.


How To Turn Quiet Mode On Or Off


If you want some peace and quiet on Instagram turn on quiet mode by following the steps below.


NOTE: You can turn quiet mode on via the Instagram app's settings on a mobile device - Android or iOs. Currently quiet mode is not available for the desktop version of Instagram.
