Dark mode is a feature which reserves the use of light on a device screen, using a dark colour across the background with white text on top.

Dark mode is something which can help those with visual impairments to read a screen and is a popular setting for those who browse on their devices when it’s dark.

But how do you access – and ultimately turn off – dark mode on Instagram specifically?

Well, it turns out that this depends very much on the kind of device that you are using.

The Role of Device In Accessing Dark Mode

If you use an Android device, then you will find a specific dark mode setting within Instagram that allows you to switch between dark and light mode with incredible ease.

If you use an iPhone or Apple product, dark mode can only be accessed and switched on or off via the entire device settings. This means that if you want to view Instagram in dark mode, or you want to switch dark mode off, you will need to adjust the settings for your entire device.

Is Dark Mode Good For Your Eyes?

Some users report that dark mode is better for sensitive eyes and for specific visual challenges and impairments.

Whatever your preference, getting to know the settings on your device and those which are specific to the apps in your device will enable you to access or switch off dark mode accordingly.
