Vanish Mode on Instagram: An Amazing Feature Of Instagram

Have you ever thought that your messages, photos you have sent and your chat history will delete? Yes, Instagram users are now able to access disappearing messages on Instagram since 2018.

Even if the recipient takes a screenshot of a disappearing message on instagram the sender is notified.

This new feature of Instagram is known as vanish mode. In vanish mode, DMs will disappear after the receiver has viewed or after the closing of chat.

This is an additional privacy control which allows users to specify who can send messages to them. 

With this update, you will have choice and control to manage your privacy. 

These features are rolling out globally. Users will enjoy it.

What Is Vanish Mode Instagram?

Vanish mode on Instagram allows for secure and private communication. You secure your messages and call by this feature.

Any message sent while in Vanish Mode will disappear once you exit the chat, and when you return to normal DMs, no history of messages will appear in your thread.

In addition to it, vanish Mode and the other new messaging features like chat colors and themes  are testing in select countries and will roll out globally soon. If you don’t see the new features after updating your app, you’ll need to be patient.

As its name suggests, this newest feature allows users to enter a “mode” where you can send private messages that will leave no chat history. Like its Snapchat message forefathers, you’ll be able to send text, photos, or videos in Vanish Mode.

Firstly, both sender and receiver have to enable the new feature. Next, once you will do it, all you’ll need to do is swipe up on your chat to enter Vanish Mode.

Your screen will go black, a la web browsers’ “Incognito Mode”, and you’ll see a note at the top specifying that you’ve entered Vanish Mode. All messages sent in Vanish Mode will disappear once you exit the chat or go back to normal messaging.

No history of messages will appear in your thread. Moreover, it’ll just look like your regular messaging conversation. If you heard something, that was just everyone letting out a collective *gulp*.
