Meanwhile, Instagram is a popular social media app that lets you share photos, videos, stories, and messages with your friends and followers. But sometimes, you may need some peace and quiet from the endless notifications and messages that Instagram sends you. That's why Instagram has a feature called Quiet Mode. Quiet Mode lets you mute your Instagram notifications for a while, up to 12 hours. You can also choose the time and length of Quiet Mode according to your needs.

If you want to enjoy some peace and quiet, you can turn on Quiet Mode on Instagram. This will change your activity status to a moon icon, and anyone who messages you will see that you are in Quiet Mode. They will also get an automatic reply that says you are not getting their message notifications. This way, you can tell your friends that you need some personal space and avoid unwanted interruptions. If you are interested in this feature and want to try it, here is a guide on how to activate Quiet Mode on Instagram.
