HOW TO REMOVE A PHOTO POSTED ON INSTAGRAM WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION

Follow the below steps:

  1. Document the post: You may need a record of the post if you decide to take further action. We recommend that you take a screenshot of the post for reporting purposes.
  2. Report the post: You can anonymously report photos that go against Instagram’s Community Guidelines. If someone is threatening to share things you want to keep private (ex: messages, photos, videos), asking you to send money or asking you to do something else you’re uncomfortable with, report their profile to Instagram. If you don’t have an Instagram account, you can report things using this form. After reporting a post, the Instagram team will review the image and remove it if it goes against Instagram’s Community Guidelines. Instagram uses photo-matching technology to help stop future attempts to share the image on Instagram, Facebook and Messenger.
  3. Unfollow or block the person who posted it: Unfollow the person who posted it AND Block the person who posted it Keep in mind that these options may keep you from seeing the post, but the person who posted it and other people on Instagram may still be able to see the post unless it’s removed.
  4. Get support: The below organisations provide information and resources for people who are being harassed or harmed online. You may want local law enforcement to see if it’s illegal to post things like this in your state or country. If you want to pursue legal action, you may need a screenshot or other record of the post. You may also want to talk with a victim advocate or social worker in your town or city. Victim advocates can help you gather evidence, figure out how to keep you safe and get a civil protection or anti-stalking order against the person harassing you. If you’re a minor, consider talking to a school counsellor or administrator you trust.

CONCLUSION

Removing unwanted images of you on Instagram is important for safeguarding your privacy and identity and controlling the exposure of physical details that could harm your personal and professional reputation.
