This is good news and maybe some people here use Instagram and don't want others embedding their images in other places on other sites.

Good. Though I seem to be one of the ones for whom this option is not yet available.

I don't use IG so I wouldn't notice, but it's supposed to be active since the start of the year. Too bad if it's not. I'd have to go look? Maybe it's not activated for me either.

I just learned that I could link a Flickr image of my own. Not that it's as easy as Postimg but I didn't know there was a sort of image hosting, free from Flickr. Another place that I don't use or support, but I have an account just to keep it in my name.

OK I looked, clicked my Avatar > Settings > Privacy and Security. Just turned off Embeds. That's on a desktop, not a phone or other. I think I'm safe, I can't figure out how to embed from my own posts! I don't know how anyone else would do that.

Oh with a little editing I can use the IMG parts and Flickr. Interesting?

If you go to settings and in the search bar at the top type in Embeds, it will pull up.  You can toggle it off from there.

Ah, I see. Thanks! I followed the "a new option" link from the article and it just lead me to an instagram page that said "This function is not available to all users." But it worked the way you described it.
