How to delete all follow request on Instagram at once

Instagram works in a very mysterious way, If your account is private then it won’t let you accept you Instagram follow request at once. And if you want to delete those requests at once then you can’t do that either. Funny ain’t it. But as there are many reasons for Instagram to continue this feature, We need to find a way to make the platform work according to our needs, And that’s exactly what’s we are going to do in this tutorial blog.

How to check your list of sent follow requests on Instagram?

Before you delete all of them you can check if you follow any of them, And you don’t need to scroll through your feed whole day. There is a shortcut for this:

1. Firstly, open your Instagram app.

2. After that click on the Instagram settings.

3. From this list of settings options, you can click the “Security” option.

4. In further you can click on the “Access Data” that belongs to the “Data and History“.
