How to delete your Instagram account: Instagram is one of the most popular social media sites – and one of the most addictive. If you want to reduce your Instagram habits, you can always delete or deactivate your Instagram account.
The difference between the two options is that deleting your Instagram account is permanent, deactivating is temporary, and then allows you to recover your account.
If you are an internet user, then you have a great opportunity to use social media sites like Facebook, Instagram or Snapshot. The truth is that by using these apps you are throwing your personal data on the web and accessing some part of that data on these sites.
Knowing that these social media giants can see our personal lives, many people will choose to jump on board and end their social media presence altogether. I know this is a serious step, but pessimistic times demand pessimistic action.
Instagram has more than 1 billion users worldwide, and the number of people willing to opt out of the photo sharing app is still increasing. So, here is how to delete or temporarily disable your Instagram account.
How to disable your account temporarily
You must first go to Instagram.com on your desktop as you cannot disable the account from your smartphone.
Sign in with your account credentials.
Click on your profile picture in the top right corner.
Click ‘Settings’ and scroll down the page.
Select the “Disable My Account” link.
You have to provide the reason for deleting the account.
Enter your account password.
Click on the “Temporarily Disabled Account” option.
This will disable your Instagram account site and you will not be able to post any content. Other Instagram users will not be able to see your profile until you sign in again. You can sign in again using the same Instagram ID and password.
Disclaimer: Note that after deleting an account you do not have the option to restore your images, so backup everything you post to Instagram before permanently deleting the account.
How to Permanently Delete Your Instagram Account
Instagram has a dedicated page for users who want to permanently delete their account.
To delete your account you will need to log in first.
Select the reason for deleting the account.
You will have to enter your password again.
Click the option to write “Permanently delete my account”.
Your account will then be permanently deleted.
