Note: Deleting your Instagram account means that your profile, photos, videos, likes, comments, and any followers you have will also be permanently deleted.
You can’t delete your account from the Instagram app, so you’ll need to log in to instagram.com from a web browser on your desktop or mobile device.
Once you’ve logged in, go to the Delete Your Account page and select your reason for deleting your account from the ‘Why are you deleting your account?
Keep in mind: Once you’ve deleted your account, you can’t sign up with that same username if you decide to create another Instagram account later on. Instagram also can’t reactivate deleted accounts.
That being said, in the case that you’re not ready to permanently part with your Instagram account, I’m here to cover how to deactivate your Instagram account temporarily.
Want to take a break from social media, but not done with Instagram for good? You can temporarily disable your account and reactivate it when you’re ready to join the Instagram community once again.
To temporarily deactivate Instagram:
Log into instagram.com from a mobile browser or computer – you can’t temporarily disable your account from the Instagram app.Navigate to your profile screen and click ‘Edit Profile’ on the top of the page.From there, select ‘Temporarily disable my account’ at the bottom of the screen.
Select your reason for deactivating your account from the ‘Why are you disabling your account?’ drop-down menu.
Once you’ve selected an option, you’ll be prompted to re-enter your password to confirm that you want to deactivate Instagram.
After you’ve selected a reason and entered your password, the option to temporarily disable your account will appear.
Click ‘Temporarily Disable Account’ and your profile – along with all of your content and followers – will be hidden until you reactivate it by logging back in.
Keep in mind: You will need your password to both delete and disable your account.
When you’re ready to join the Instagram community once again, you can reactivate your deactivated account.
To do so, all you have to do is log in to your Instagram account again.
Go to instagram.com and log in with your username and password to restore your disabled account.
