Instagram has added a bunch of new features including the much-awaited Dark mode and a feature that is aimed at tackling phishing attacks carried out through social media platforms.

Apple added the system-wide Dark Mode on iOS 13 and Google did it on Android 10. Instagram is offering the Dark Mode on both the operating systems. For instance, if you have enabled the Dark Mode on your device, Instagram will auto-switch to black background with white text.

Meanwhile, another new feature helps the users to find out if an e-mail was sent by Instagram or is an attempted phishing scam.

As The Verge notes, the Instagram app will list every email the company has officially sent a user over the last 14 days.

To check if an e-mail is genuine, a user has to head to the Emails section from the Instagram option in the app’s security settings. The update is being gradually rolled out to all users.
