One such feature is anonymous messaging which isn’t available from Instagram itself, however, there are third-party apps that let you send anonymous messages where your details are hidden from your recipient.

What is NGL and how does it help send anonymous messages?

NGL or ‘Not Going To Lie’ is a buzzing app in social media that helps Instagram users send out anonymous messages to other users similar to how the “Ask me anything” format picked up on the platform when it arrived.

You have to create a link of NGL asking questions and generate a link. Once you have the link, post it on Instagram using the Link sticker or post it on Instagram’s bio. Interested Instagram users can follow the link and post their answers and it’s that simple. All the responses are recorded on the NGL app that you can check out. Since all the replies are anonymous, you won’t be able to ascertain who sent them.

NGL is also taking a step further by filtering any abusive or hurtful slurs or comments. It means something like ‘kill yourself’ will be filtered out automatically. Of course, NGL is still working on improving its filter system so some keywords might still slip by but most of them are caught eventually.
