Your status and auto-reply will be updated to “in quiet mode” at night or whenever you need to focus. You’ll get a reminder 10 minutes before quiet mode starts.

If you’ve got an updated Instagram app, this may be enabled for you by default.

Do you really need quiet mode?

Yes, if you receive lots of notifications from Instagram, especially DMs, use this feature to focus on your work or family when needed. If you turn it on, the notifications will be paused during this time that you choose to silent notifications and afterward, you’ll get the notifications as usual.

But if you don’t want to pause or silent notifications, you won’t be needing this feature and hence you can turn it off.
