Instagram has a direct message filter feature. The function, which is initially available only for iPhone (iOS), allows you to filter search results to find unread conversations or those that have been marked as important. In addition, the functionality is also useful for people who do not remember the name of a user with whom they chatted via message, since it is not necessary to type anything to use the search filters. To find out how to find hidden directs among other messages, check out the following tutorial on how to use Instagram search filters.
