You may now delete your Instagram account directly from the Instagram app. You can see how to accomplish it in this article.
Instagram launched a feature allowing users to deactivate their accounts in June 2022 to meet with Apple’s revised App Store policies.
Until recently, the only ways to delete your Instagram account were through desktop or mobile web browser logins. Instagram had to include the function, though, after Apple instructed developers that starting on June 30, 2022, apps that provide account creation must also support account cancellation.
You should be informed that deleting your account would permanently delete your profile, photographs, videos, comments, likes, and follows.
Nevertheless, you have 30 days to reconsider deleting your account, so if you change your mind, you may log back into Instagram and ask to have your account restored.
Remember that you may always temporarily deactivate your Instagram account rather than deleting it, and all of your content will remain hidden until you enable it once more by logging back in.
Here are the steps to deleting (or deactivating) your Instagram account on iPhone.
- Open the Instagram application.
- In the lower right corner, tap the profile symbol.
- In the upper right corner, tap the three lines.
- Select Settings.
- Click Account.
- Near the bottom of the menu, choose Delete account.
- Then hit Delete Account to confirm (or Deactivate Account).
