How to get Dark Mode on Instagram for Android

Note: This method makes use of a third-party modded app. The following method was tested for a week to ensure zero damage to the user’s account. That said, we will not be responsible for any harm to your account.

1. First off, download the APK for InstaMod from here. This is a side alone app, which means you can continue to use the original Instagram app alongside this if you want to.

2. Next up, install the APK that you just downloaded. Depending on your Android version, you will have to grant the app/system the permission to install APK files.

3. Once the app is installed, simply open it and log in with your Instagram account. 

Note: While attempting to log in, make sure to enter your username and your password. Do not use the option to Log in with Facebook.

4. And that’s it. You can now enjoy Instagram in dark mode.
