When you delete your account, your profile, photos, videos, comments, likes, and followers will be permanently removed. You can also choose to take a break and temporarily disable your account instead.

Before deleting your account, you may want to log in and download a copy of your information (such as your photos and posts) from Instagram. After your account has been deleted, you will not have access to Instagram’s Data Download tool.

1. Go to the Delete your account Page from a mobile browser or computer. If you aren’t logged in to Instagram on the web, you’ll be asked to log in first. You can’t delete your account from within the Instagram app.

2. Select an option from the drop-down menu next to Why are you deleting your account? And re-enter your password. The option to permanently delete your account will only appear after you’ve selected a reason from the menu.

3. Click or tap Delete [username].


4. After 30 days of your account deletion request, your account, and all your information will be permanently deleted, and you won’t be able to retrieve your information

5. It may take up to 90 days to complete the deletion process after it begins. Copies of your content may remain after the 90 days in backup storage that we use to recover in the event of a disaster, software error, or other data loss event.

How to delete your Instagram account permanently.

  1. From a browser, go to Instagram’s dedicated page for deleting accounts.
  2. If you are not logged in, you will have to do so.
  3. Select your reason for deleting the account.
  4. Re-enter your password.
  5. Select the button stating: Delete [username].

People won’t be able to access your content once you’ve hit the Delete button, but keep in mind your account isn’t completely gone just yet. All data will stay in Instagram’s servers for 30 days, and you can still retrieve it. The social network claims the deletion process can take as much as 90 days, and it informs us the data may stick around for longer in backups kept for emergencies. Additionally, Instagram might keep some information about you, such as legal issues, terms violations, etc.
