How to Turn Off Instagram Live Notifications

Written by Thirumalraj

When a person you follow on Instagram goes live, you’ll get a notification.

If you don’t want that notification, you can stop that.

In this post, you’ll see how to turn off Instagram live notifications for a single person and everyone.

Note that you can’t disable live notifications on the Instagram Desktop version for a single person.

I use the app (Android phone and iPhone) and Instagram Desktop version (PC) here. Let’s begin.

Turn Off Live Notifications for Single Person on Instagram (Android)

If you’re using an Android phone, follow the below steps:

Go to the profile of the person you follow.

Here’s how: Launch the Instagram app and hit your profile picture at the bottom right. Tap Following at the top right and hit the person’s name.

Now, hit the Bell icon at the top right.

Beneath Reels, you can see “Goes live.” Tap it, and you can view the following:

  • Get all notifications: By choosing this one, you’ll get all the live notifications from this profile.
  • Get some notifications: You’ll get some live video notifications from this profile by choosing this one.
  • Turn off notifications: You’ll not get live notifications from this profile.

Choose the latter, and that’s it.
