Got sick of being paranoid about really specific targeted ads in Instagram for things I’ve only ever discussed in real life. I’ve switched off mic, camera and location access for the Instagram app in iOS. I’ve stopped using the app for everything but direct messages and I just use the Instagram web app for viewing and submitting photos. Looking forward to dropping it entirely though and moving to something like @pixelfed.


Incidentally, the Instagram web app is great on iOS, and there’s no ads or ‘friend’ suggestions. Just your feed and stories.
