Did you know that you have a secret folder on Instagram Direct messages with “other” messages? Find out how to access it on Instagram.
Instagram “Other Messages”
From the HOME screen of your Instagram account, click on the mailbox in the upper right of your screen.
This will show you your DIRECT MESSAGES (DM’s) for your Instagram account. But it is only showing you the messages from people that you follow.
