Disable video auto-play
Immediately you open your Instagram app, it loads all the videos in your news feed automatically, this means as you scroll videos will play automatically. This feature consumes a lot of data, here is what you should do.
open your instagram app
go to your profile and click settings
on newer versions, click on the drop-down menu and select settings
Locate cellular data
select “use less data” and save
this will stop videos from loading automatically, you can save about 30% data
Disable background data
background data is another cause of high data consumption. Even when your instragram app is closed, it still load in background using your data. Most people complain of this when ever they turn on their data, they start receiving notifications from instagram without opening the app, thereby consuming much data, here is what to do
go to settings on your phone
click on APPS
locate your instagram app and click on it
click on data usage, you will see data consumed by it on foreground(when app is opened) and background(when app is closed)
click on disable background data and confirm

Turn on data saver/power saver
though this isn’t necessary but it can still contribute to reduction of data by Instagram
Use WiFi instead of mobile data
in some locations you can get free Wi-Fi, so you can use it and save your data.
using the above methods, you can save upto 50% data consumed by instagram on your phone.
