How to Block Facebook Users from Messaging You on Instagram

Facebook announced it's introducing a cross-post feature that will allow users on Facebook Messenger send you a message on Instagram in 2018; probably to make users interact with themselves easily.

However, if you want to stop this feature on your account and separate your Facebook and Instagram account in order to stop unnecessary message requests then you're on the right page.

Instagram made this possible, this can be implemented on android and iPhones, simply follow the below steps to disable Facebook requests on Instagram.

  2. Tap on the hamburger menu button at the top-right corner
  3. Select "Settings" from the side menus'
  4. Navigate to Privacy > Messages

You're a few steps near customizing who can DM you on Instagram from Facebook, let's proceed,

> To prevent your Facebook friends or people you've messaged on messenger from sending you a message on Instagram, simply click on the "Second settings" on the list.

> You'll see three options to pick from; "Chats, Message Request, Don't Recieve Requests"

> Now, the chat option allows anyone from messenger to slide into your DM and the second option moves their chats as a request for you to accept before anything else while the last option doesn't allow at all.

That's what we want right?  Yes.

> You can also select who can reach your on Instagram from messenger by Navigating to "Message controls" with the above illustration.

> You can choose to deactivate your "friends of friends" and "Others on Facebook" and click on "Don’t Receive Requests" to cut them off.

That's all.
