If you have ever needed to download everything you have done on Instagram, now you’ve got the chance to do so. Instagram has published a feature that allows you to download an archive of your account, including the pictures and videos you’ve uploaded to the platform, any Stories, comments you’ve written, direct messages and other data, all for you to download into one folder.
Here’s how to do it:
How to download all your Instagram data from Android, iPhone, or Pc?
When you request for the data, Instagram will email you a link to a file with your pictures, comments, profile data and more. You may have to wait up to 48 hours for it.
Remember that link will work for only four days. So as soon as you receive the email, check it out ASAP.
Step 1: open the browser on your mobile or PC and go to Instagram download data request page.
Step 2: now, sign in to your Instagram account, If you aren’t already.
Step 3: tap on “Next.”
Step 4: now, you need to enter your password.
Step 5: click on “Request download.”
Instagram will now confirm that it has begun to prepare a file of your shared data and will send a link to your registered email address.
Example: “We’ve started creating a file of things you’ve shared on Instagram and will email a link to …@gmail.com. It may take up to 48 hours to collect this data and send it to you.”
How to view your Instagram data on Android, iPhone, and PC?
Once you received the email about your Instagram data, you can view it both on your computer and mobile device.
Step 1: open the web browser on your mobile or PC, then go to Instagram and tap on profile button to go to your Instagram settings.
Step 2: click on “privacy and security.”
Step 3: now, scroll down and click on “View account data.”
Step 4: check out your Instagram account info, browse through your data. You can view the account privacy changes, the password changes, accounts you follow and more.
I hope this option is available for mobile app sooner than later.
