    How to delete your Instagram account permanently, or deactivate it temporarily

    •  
    • You can delete your Instagram account permanently on the account deletion page.
    • If you think you might want to recover your Instagram account later, you can also deactivate it temporarily.
    • To delete or deactivate your Instagram account, you'll need to use a web browser, not the app.

    Instagram is one of the most popular social media sites around - and one of the most addicting. If you want to tone down your Instagram habits, you can always delete or deactivate your Instagram account.

    The difference between the two options is that deleting your Instagram account is permanent, while deactivating is temporary and lets you get your account back later.

    Quick note: To delete or deactivate your Instagram account, you'll need to use a desktop web browser, or the web browser on your smartphone. You can't do it through the app.

    Here's how to do both.

    How to delete your Instagram account permanently

    1. On a desktop or mobile web browser, go to the Instagram website and log into your account using your username and password.

    2. Once logged in, go to the account deletion page.

    3. From the drop-down menu at the top of the screen, choose your reason for deleting your account.

    4. Once you've chosen your reason for deleting, you'll be asked to re-enter your password. Do so, and then click the blue "Delete [Account Name]" button.

    Instagram notes that it'll take a month for your data to be fully erased. Until then, your account will just be hidden from public view.

    How to deactivate your Instagram account temporarily

    If you think you want to recover your Instagram account later, you should disable it temporarily:

    1. Log into your Instagram account on the web and go to your profile page, then click "Edit profile" at the top of the page.
