LONDON: After giving its users the power to restrict bullies on its platform, Facebook-owned Instagram has now extended its anti-bullying tool to hurtful captions on photos and videos.

Now, if someone bullies you on an Instagram caption on your photos or videos, it will immediately be flagged with a notification: “This caption looks similar to others that have been reported.” The user will be given the option to revise the message or share it anyway, reports inews.co.uk.

The ‘Caption Warning’ feature is yet another step to prevent cyber-bullying on Instagram.

Instagram in October rolled out the ‘Restrict’ feature globally that lets users stop people who bully them via offensive posts or abusive comments.

You can restrict someone by swiping left on a comment, through the Privacy tab in Settings, or directly on the profile of the account you intend to restrict.
