To permanently delete your Instagram account, you can follow these steps:
- Visit the Instagram website (instagram.com) on a web browser. Unfortunately, you cannot delete your account directly from the Instagram mobile app.
- Log in to your Instagram account using your username and password.
- Once you’re logged in, navigate to the “Delete Your Account” page by clicking on the following link: https://www.instagram.com/accounts/remove/request/permanent/
- On the “Delete Your Account” page, you will be presented with information about the account deletion process. Read the information carefully to understand the consequences of deleting your account.
- Select a reason for deleting your account from the drop-down menu. Instagram requires you to provide a reason for account deletion.
- After selecting a reason, re-enter your Instagram account password in the provided field.
- Finally, click on the “Permanently delete my account” button to initiate the deletion process.
- Instagram will permanently delete your account along with all your photos, videos, comments, followers, and other account data. This action cannot be undone.
It’s worth noting that there is no way to recover a deleted Instagram account or its content after the deletion process is completed. Therefore, make sure to backup any important data before deleting your account.
