How to Save Mobile Data on Instagram - 4 Ways to Save Mobile Data on Instagram

You may have seen your data package deplete faster than usual if you use Instagram frequently. This is because Instagram consumes a lot of mobile data, especially if you continue to watch IGTV videos and scroll through reels. Thankfully, the use of Instagram data can be reduced without reducing your platform time. Let's review four quick ways to save mobile Instagram details in this post.


How to Save Mobile Data on Instagram

Instagram is filled with images, IGTV videos, and countless high-quality scrolling reels. That is why Instagram spends more time on the phone than any other social media apps. Having said that, we have some useful methods for the Instagram application to save mobile data, as seen below.


Method # 1. Enable Data Saver in Instagram (Android, iOS)

Instagram comes with a complete data saver that can be used when data is low. It stops the loading of videos in advance, which eventually reduces data volume. However, clips and videos on the feed will take a while longer to play.

To enable data saver in Instagram:

  • Go to your profile, after open Instagram.
  • Select Settings, after a click on the Hamburger Menu.
  • Select the Account option and select Cellular Data Use.
  • Now, allow the option for Data Saver.

Method # 2. Disable High-Resolution Media (Android Only)

Instagram also provides the option to turn off high-resolution media under the same data saver section. It decreases media quality on the network to reduce data usage, as the name suggests.

Images and videos may not be as sharp as before, but a decent deal of cell data will definitely be saved, and stuff loaded more fast than usual. The choice for Android users is currently available.

To disable high-resolution media on Instagram:

  • Go to your profile, after open Instagram.
  • Select Settings, after a click on the Hamburger Menu.
  • Select the Account option and select Cellular Data Use.
  • Go to your profile, after open Instagram.
  • Select Settings, then click on the Hamburger Menu.
  • To use mobile data, click Account.
  • Click High-Resolution Media here and then tap WiFi only.
