Instagram – Photos of You Feature

Instagram has many exciting features in its mobile application. One of those features is called ‘photos of you.’ This section is where you can view photos that people have tagged you in.

2) Above all of your Instagram posts, you will see a row of four icons. Tap on the one on the far right and you will find yourself in the ‘photos of you’ section. You will be able to see all of the photos that you’ve ever been tagged in.
