Shielded Instagram Pictures Were Still Public

Photos on the popular social networking site where users thought they were screened were still accessible to others. The problem was caused by the way dealt with Instagram photos shielded and public accounts. By default Instagram accounts public.

However, users can protect their account and choose to share photos only followers. Photos that were shared for this adjustment could still be viewed as the URL of the picture was known, even though the user thought they were screened, as reported Quartz. Instagram has corrected the problem this weekend so photos shielded accounts really are screened, regardless of whether they were previously accessible via a public profile.
