HOW TO PERMANENTLY DELETE AN INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT IN 2024

Congratulations!

You are about to make one of the best decisions in your life and start owning your precious time.

Deleting your Instagram account will get you to earn back those wasted hours trying so hard to build audiences you will never own.

Not having an Instagram account will help you focus on the work that counts for your business: increasing profits and brand equity.

GET YOUR INSTAGRAM CONTENT FIRST 

When you delete your Instagram account, Instagram will permanently remove your uploaded content: your profile, photos, videos, comments, likes and followers.

Information that other Instagram account holders have posted about you on Instagram is not part of your Instagram account and will not be deleted by Instagram.

Before deleting your Instagram account, you may want to log in and get a copy of your information (like your photos and posts) from Instagram.

How to get all your Instagram content?

  1. Go to your Instagram app and click on “Settings”
  2. Click on “Security”
  3. then tap “Download data”
  4. Enter your Instagram password
  5. Viola! Instagram will email you a file with your photos, comments, profile information and more. It may take up to 48 hours to send it to you.
  6. Once you receive the email, the link will only work for four days.

Remember: After your account has been permanently deleted, you will NOT have access to get your content again.

Before you delete your Instagram account, let me confirm something you probably know already:

SOCIAL MEDIA IS NOT HELPING YOUR BUSINESS

  • Your organic posts are reaching an average of 5% of your followers. 
  • You have been trying hard to build audiences on social media platforms you do not own.
  • You cannot transfer your hard-earned followers to your best CRM software.
  • Your customer acquisition costs from social media ads are through the roof.

If you’re unsure about permanently deleting your Instagram account, you can also consider deactivating it temporarily, which allows you to reactivate it later if you change your mind.
