Instagram Will Now Let You Rage Shake Your Phone to Report a Problem

Instagram head Adam Mosseri said Wednesday that the company has added two new features to improve user experience, including a “rage shake” that will let users report a problem more quickly. If you’re using the app and it isn’t working as it’s supposed to, shake the phone while the app is open, and a pop-up screen will ask, “Did something go wrong?” with space for you to report the issue.

Instagram: All Users to Be Required to Enter their Birthdate to Log In

Instagram will require all users to enter their birthdate to log in, even those who weren't asked to give a date if they joined before 2019, as part of the app's new child safety measures. Users will be able to dismiss the prompt initially, although Instagram will blur content that is marked as sensitive and potentially unsuitable for under-18s, but parent company Facebook will ultimately require a birthday to let users continue using the app.
