Deleting your Instagram is a very easy process that can be achieved in just a few simple steps and is a great way to cut down on your phone time.
There are more social media apps on the market to choose from than ever before, which is why you may be considering cutting down on your options. Instagram is a great place to catch up with friends and stay in the loop on the latest fashion trends, but it can take time to keep up with the neverending updates.
It’s worth noting that you can recover your Instagram up to a month after deleting it, but after that, it will be gone forever. We recommend saving any personal photos or information from the platform before keeping your account, just in case you want to hold onto any memories.
With all that said, here is how to delete your Instagram account in just a few simple steps.
