How to disable people from tagging you without your permission?
Luckily, you can change your tagging permissions so that you couldn’t be tagged anywhere without your permission. You can either choose “Add automatically” or “Add manually”.
“Add automatically” basically means that anyone can tag you without your permissions. Tag will instantly appear on the photo and you will be able to untag yourself only afterwards.
However, if you choose “Add manually” option, then Instagram will inform you about the tag and you will be tagged only after you confirm it.
Follow the steps to disable people from tagging you without your permission:
