How to Reply to NGL Messages on Instagram

NGL allows you to receive anonymous messages from your Instagram followers.

When you receive a message, it will be sent to your NGL inbox.

You can reply to the message by posting an Instagram story.

The NGL app has a one-tap reply feature that you can use to do this.

That way, you don’t have to screenshot the message and add it to your story manually.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to reply to NGL messages on Instagram on your story.

After you’ve posted your NGL link, you need to wait for your followers to send you messages.

In your inbox, open the message that you want to reply to.

You can move your reply to the bottom or the top of the NGL message.

Lastly, tap on “Your story” to post your reply as an Instagram story.

If you don’t want all of your followers to see it, you can post the story to your close friends by tapping on “Close Friends”.

However, you need to have a close friends list.

Like any Instagram story, your reply will be automatically deleted after 24 hours.

NGL messages are anonymous, so you won’t be able to tell who’s the sender.

If you want to know who sent you an NGL message, you can mention it in your reply.

Here’s an example of what you can say, “DM me if you’re the one who sent me this message”.
