For iOS (iPhone/iPad), you can change the language settings with the following steps:

  1. Open the Instagram app, go to your profile page, and tap the ≡ icon in the upper right corner (if more options appear, tap "Settings")

  2. Scroll down to find "Language" under "Your app and media", and tap it

  3. In the "How to set your Instagram app language" dialog, tap "Continue"

Tapping "Continue" will switch to the iOS settings screen. Tap "Language" and select your language to complete the settings change.

If language settings don't work

Changing the language settings will not change the language of posts or captions in your feed. It only changes the display language of menus and options within the app.

If the language settings are not working properly, try restarting the app or logging out and back in. If it still doesn't improve, updating the app or restarting your smartphone itself can sometimes be effective.

Customize your language settings to enjoy your Instagram life comfortably!
