How to make those Instagram DMs 'vanish'
Content sent in vanish mode disappears when someone leaves the chat or turns vanish mode off.
To activate 'Vanish' mode on Instagram, follow these steps.
Open the Instagram app and go to your Instagram DMs
Tap send or messenger in the top right of your feed.
From the chat list, select the conversation where you want to enable the 'Vanish' mode.
Inside the chat window, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and release your finger to turn on the 'Vanish' mode.
Every time a user sends a message in vanish mode, Instagram will notify them.
You’ll also be notified if they send you a new message outside of vanish mode.
Next: You may soon be able to add songs to your Instagram profile!
