If someone on Instagram is threatening to share photos of you that you don’t want online, Instagram offers some advice on what to do. This is a serious problem that you need to deal with in three ways immediately.

  • Contact local law enforcement and report this to them.
  • Report this person to Instagram.
  • Block this person. Depending on your privacy settings, people on Instagram can see a list of your followers and who you follow. Once you block someone, they no longer have access to your profile.
