How to mute those obnoxious Instagram live video notifications


Live broadcasts can be cool — and they’re not as intrusive on IG as they are on Facebook — but you probably shouldn’t subject all of your followers to a livestream unless something really exciting is going down.

Live video arguably goes against the whole appeal of Stories, and Instagram on the whole: meticulously curating the most hyper-visual aspects of your life for your followers.

It’s really easy to shut off the pop-ups. Just follow these simple steps.
