How to Delete Instagram

Without going much into detail about why anyone wants to delete their Instagram account, let’s get to the procedure that explains every step of how to delete Instagram.

One thing that I like about Instagram is, it gives you two choices to get rid of your account. They are…

Disable Instagram account temporarily – You can temporarily disable your Instagram account that won’t delete photos or videos and other data saved on your Instagram profile. You can get all of them back once you get back on Instagram again.

Delete Instagram Account Permanently – The other choice is to permanently delete the Instagram account.

If you choose to do that, you will lose all the photos and videos saved on your Instagram account. Also, you wouldn’t be able to log in to it ever.

I’ll explain the step-wise process of how to delete an Instagram account permanently as well as how you can temporarily disable it.

If you aren’t sure whether you really want to delete your Instagram account, I’d suggest going for temporary disable as you can always log in to your account in case you change your mind.

However, in case you are firm about deleting your Instagram account, saving the photographs and videos on a phone or laptop will be a smart idea (If you had deleted it from your phone after uploading it to Instagram).

Let’s go ahead with the process.
