There always comes a moment when you might think about disconnecting from your social platforms, and not just temporarily. People are choosing to delete their social media to lead a life less focused on online culture. Whether willing to protect your future job aspects or just limit the usage of your phone, deleting your social media accounts may lead to a healthier life.
In Threads, there is no going back. As it turns out, Meta doesn’t let you cancel your thread profile once you subscribe up for it, at least not without deleting your Instagram account with it as well.“
Permanently deleting your Threads account may seem like a significant step, but it’s easy to carry out if you’re ready to get rid of your profile and get some spare time back in your life. Take a look at how to delete your account by deleting Instagram.
Deleting Your Instagram Account and Saving Data
Before you want to make a move to delete your Instagram account, it is a good idea to back up your Instagram data. You can’t add it back later, you may have valuable visuals, texts, and followers. When you delete your Instagram account, it will just erase all the data: it will delete all of your account’s information and everything in it. To save your account data, follow the following steps:
- Open “Instagram” app and tap the “Profile Icon” in the lower right corner of your screen.
- Tap the “Hamburger Icon” (Menu) in the top right corner, and then tap “Settings” at the bottom.
- Enter your registered email address on your profile and tap “Request Download.“
Within 48 hours of your request, Instagram will email a complete file of your profile to the email address you provided. This email contains your photos, profile information, and anything else you may need to access in the future. This is an essential step towards ensuring that your information is protected.
Permanently deleting your Instagram account happens using a browser, you can do that on both mobile and desktop browsers. Before your profile disappears, Instagram will make your account temporarily invisible for 30 days.
- Go to the Delete Your Instagram Account page on your browser and see if you’re logged in.
- Select the reason for deleting your account from the drop-down menu.
- Click or tap the “Delete” option confirming your decision.
Getting Account Back After Deletion
As of now there’s no feature to get your account back after permanently deleting it. Still, several users swear by the workaround method, as explained below.
- You need to report the account as hacked to Instagram, just as we’ve done above. Here’s how to do it.
- Enter in your username or email address and click on Instagram’s “Get help signing in” option.
- Select “Trouble logging in.”
- Follow the steps, including selecting the type of account you’d like to recover and then clicking “My account was hacked” to proceed.
- Then select on the option “hear more about your experience.”
- Fill out the form and Instagram will send you an email within a few hours. Next, you need to provide verification, like images that you’ve earlier uploaded to that account, your username, email address, and verification code, for this to work.
