How to delete an Instagram account

If you have decided that you want to permanently delete your Instagram account, then this article is for you. Here, we will show you how to permanently delete your profile. Keep in mind, before continuing, that after this process, you will lose access to your data. Therefore, you will no longer be able to retrieve the comments, messages, and content you have uploaded.

Now, tap on Settings

Use the Help option to continue

Open the application help center.

In the search box, type Delete account and open the suggested article How do I delete my Instagram account

Remember that you can also deactivate your account from here. With this function, your profile will be hidden and, for practical purposes, will have disappeared. However, you will keep your followers, the content hosted in your account, and the comments. To reactivate your user, all you have to do is log in. If deactivation is more suitable to your needs, tap on the link temporarily disable your account

If you want to completely delete your account, tap on the Delete Your Account link.

Log in to your browser and then select the reason you want to delete your account. Enter your password in the text field below and press the Permanently delete my account button. Remember! Once you tap that button, there is no turning back

Although the option is quite hidden, the truth is that the process of deleting an account is simple. From Opera, we suggest that, if you just want to give yourself a break from Instagram, opt for the account deactivation, a completely reversible option.
