It may seem useless to keep an account you do not use, and your friends. Or hate the idea of all your copyrights and personal data in the hands of a massive US corporation – and potentially a lot of hackers. In both cases, getting rid of a social media account is often much more complicated than setting it and that its buttons and pages can be hidden.
This is how to permanently delete Instagram or temporarily disable your account.
How to permanently delete the Instagram account
You will need to go to Instagram.com to do this instead of trying to do it in the application itself.
But remember that once you’ve decided to do it, you will DELETE ALL. All photos, videos, comments, tastes, and followers, and there will be no way to retrieve it later. If this is a bit too much – you can choose to temporarily disable your account (see below).
If you want to keep a copy of your photos and videos, you can use third-party tools like Instaport to export and save your pictures elsewhere.
To delete your account, sign into à Instagram and go to the Here removal page you may need to access your account.
Scroll through the options and select ‘delete your account’. You have to give a reason, does it. Then re-enter your password and press Enter and your account will disappear forever.
How to temporarily disable your Instagram
For reversible correction – it is preferable to temporarily switch off the Instagram.
You cannot do this in the Instagram application itself, so you need to sign in to Instagram.com in an Internet browser.
This can be done on most devices, including phones, iPads, laptops, and desktops.
1) Sign in to your Instagram.com account. Then click the person’s icon in the right corner of the screen. This should bring you a drop down menu where you can choose to edit your profile.
2) Once in the profile editing section, scroll to the end until you find the “permanently deactivate my account” button in the bottom right corner. Touch it.
3) Under the options for disabling your Instagram, select one and tap the password when prompted.
4) Click Confirmation to disable the account.
