Technology has reached new heights of success. In the not too distant future, humanity will end up seeing things that they would have never thought of in their wildest dreams. One example of it is social media. Could anyone have ever imagined sharing their lives through an application? The answer is no. With technology evolving quickly, Instagram has come up with a unique option that people would have never anticipated. This feature sounds a bit strange but may work out very well for some individuals. It seems pretty weird, but this article will shed light on what these Instagram tools are and how one can make the most out of them.

What is vanish mode?

The vanish mode is a unique feature on Instagram that allows you to delete messages in the chat permanently. This feature can somehow be understood better if you use Snapchat. Snapchat erases stories and messages after a specific time period. Instagram also tried to do something similar and termed it vanish mode. There is nothing to worry about as both parties already know that they are in this mode.

How to use it?

Step 1

Head over to the Instagram application and move to the chat page by clicking on the “Chat” icon, which is present at the top right-hand corner of the screen.

Step 2

Open a recent chat or any new message. This can be accessed through the top right-hand corner, where ‘create a further discussion’ is written.

Step 3

To activate the vanish mode, swipe up through the bottom of the screen and then release it.

Step 4

This step will turn your screen black which is a clear indication of this mode. Also, many ‘shush’ emojis will appear from the top of the screen. Now you are free to send text messages the way you do. The person receiving your messages will also see a black screen giving him or her the same indication.

Step 5

If you are sick and tired of the vanish mode, it can even go back to the way it was before. All you have to do is turn off the vanish mode from the top of the screen. There you have it. You are finally out from the vanish mode.

What should be considered while using it?

While many users highly appreciate this Instagram tool, some have shown great resentment towards it. The reason behind it is simple. It makes people feel very insecure and diverts their minds as to why somebody would ever want to do it. All you need to do is ensure that the person you have entered into the vanish mode is comfortable. Otherwise, in extreme scenarios, your profile may even be reported, which is something you would never want. Also, it is always best to test the vanish mode with a dear friend of yours because you may even end up screwing the entire process.

In conclusion, the vanish mode on Instagram has gained both popularity and disgrace. It is entirely up to the perspective of the individual. However, care must be taken as to how you are approaching this Instagram tool.
