• I’m not interested in Instagram anymore.
• Privacy concerns.
• I can’t handle the pressure of social media.
• Too much online drama.
• I’m spending too much time on Instagram.
Choosing one of these options will help Instagram understand why you’re choosing to delete your account. Once you’ve made your selection, click “Next” to proceed to the next step.
Re-enter your password
Once you have selected the reason why you are deleting your account, you will be prompted to re-enter your Instagram password. This step is important in order to ensure that it is indeed you who is making the decision to delete your account and not someone else. Be sure to enter your password correctly as once you confirm the deletion of your account, it cannot be reversed.
After entering your password, click on ‘Permanently delete my account’ to proceed with deleting your account.

Your account will be deleted immediately, and you will be logged out of the application. Any content associated with the account, such as posts, stories, and messages will also be removed. Your profile and all information related to it will no longer be visible or accessible.
If you decide you’d like to reactivate your account at any point in the future, you can do so by logging back in to the application using the same credentials you used prior to deleting the account. Keep in mind that any previous content associated with the account may not be retrievable.
