Instagram allows you to post images and short videos on your feed. By default, your followers and others who visit your account can like and leave comments on your posts.

However, some malicious people may decide to troll your posts through the comments. To curb this, Instagram has a feature that allows Instagram users to turn off comments on their posts.
