If you wish to delete your Instagram account, please follow these steps:
Important Note: Deleting your Instagram account is a permanent action and cannot be undone. Additionally, it is recommended to download a copy of your data from Instagram before proceeding if you want to keep any content.
- Access the Instagram website: Open a web browser on your computer or mobile device and go to the Instagram website (instagram.com).
- Sign in to your account: Enter your Instagram username (or the associated email address or phone number) and password to log in to your account.
- Navigate to the Account Deletion page: Once you’re logged in, visit the Account Deletion page by clicking on the following direct link: https://instagram.com/accounts/remove/request/permanent/
- Choose a reason and re-enter your password: Select an appropriate reason for deleting your account from the drop-down menu. Then, re-enter your password to confirm your identity.
- Delete your account: Click on the “Permanently delete my account” button. This will initiate the account deletion process.
- Confirm deletion: Instagram will display a confirmation message notifying you that your account will be permanently deleted. If you’re certain about deleting your account, click on “OK” to confirm the deletion.
After completing these steps, your Instagram account will be permanently deleted, along with all your photos, videos, followers, and other account data. It’s important to note that the process may take a short while to finalize.
Remember, it’s recommended to consider temporarily disabling your Instagram account before deciding to delete it permanently. Disabling your account allows you to take a break from Instagram without losing your data permanently.
