Instagram in May rolled out new tools to crack down on online bullying and harassment, reported. The tools also included a feature that lets people delete multiple negative comments at once.
The company also revealed that from October to March it took action against three million pieces of content for bullying and harassment.
iPhone users can delete comments by tapping on it and clicking on the three gray dots in the top right corner and select Manage Comments.
On the other hand, on Android, the feature can be accessed by pressing and holding on a comment, tapping the dotted icon, and selecting Block or Restrict.
