How to delete your Instagram account forever – There comes a day when you want to delete Instagram – perhaps you’re over looking at beach pics, photos of smashed avocado on toast and endless accounts dedicated to pet cats.
Social media can be stressful, after all. Instagram appears to be making progress on making its platform a healthier space, with features to combat cyberbullying, and trialling the removal of like counts – but when you’ve had enough, you’ve had enough.
Thankfully you’re not tied to Instagram forever, and as a free service there’s nothing like a costly cancellation charge to worry about – except perhaps the cost of missing out on your friends’ brunch snaps, if that’s something you really value.
There is an option to temporarily deactivate Instagram instead – without cutting it from your life entirely – which we’ve also run through below. But if you’re here for the nuclear option we can show you how to delete your entire Instagram account instead.
