  1. Open the Instagram app and navigate to your profile (tap your profile picture in the bottom right corner).
  2. Tap the three-line menu button in the top right corner.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Tap on Privacy.
  5. Locate the Messages and Story Replies section.
  6. Toggle the Read Receipts switch to the Off position.

For specific DM conversations:

  1. Open the DM chat where you want to disable read receipts.
  2. Tap the person’s name at the top of the screen.
  3. Select Privacy & Security.
