Instagram: we teach you how to easily delete your account

Instagram It's owned by Facebook, a company that continues to divide opinions. That is not likely to change soon, and if you do not trust Facebook, you can also distrust Instagram. Here's how to delete your account from the application.

Facebook bought Instagram in 2012 for a billion dollars, a movement that raised its eyebrows at the time, but that seems a bargain in the current climate of social media.

Instagram is one of the most influential social media platforms in the world and, despite its affinity with Facebook, continues to grow. There has been a steady stream of people who have left Facebook in recent years, but the app has not been affected to any great extent.

However, some people distrust Facebook enough to want to unsubscribe from any service owned by Facebook, including the Instagram program.

If you want to delete your Instagram account, the process is surprisingly simple, considering the hoops that Facebook makes you jump through to delete your account there. If you want to delete your account from the application, first consider downloading all your images.

Note: A warning here too. Once this process is completed, your account will be deleted. That part is obvious, but you can not reopen a new account with the same name, so keep in mind that if you thought that deleting your account would be a good way to start over. It can still be, but only if you are willing to choose a new name, too.

How to delete your account

That said, let's move on. To remove your account from the app, visit the Instagram account removal page and sign in to your account.

Once you have logged in, select the reason why you want to delete your account from the drop-down menu.

Once again, enter your password to confirm that you want to delete your account and click on "Delete my account permanently".

That's all you have to do. Your Instagram has been deleted.
