Instagram comments can sometimes be a mess. But you can make things a bit better by highlighting the best comments at the top. Here’s how to pin up to three comments on Instagram posts on iPhone and Android.

How to Pin Instagram Comments on iPhone

Pinning a comment on the Instagram app on iPhone is as simple as a swipe (just like deleting comments).

First, open the Instagram app and navigate to your own post where you want to pin the comment. You can only do this on your own posts. From there, tap the “Comments” button.

How to Pin Comments in Instagram on Android

The process of managing and pinning comments on Android is slightly different. Instagram’s Android app takes the tap-and-hold approach to editing comments.

Open the Instagram app on your Android smartphone, and tap the “Comments” button found under any of your posts.
