Reasons to delete an Instagram account


  1. Little use. It is one of the most common and perhaps the main reason to delete an Instagram account, since we have the Instagram account if we have used it for months and even years and then we decided that we better close the Instagram account.
  2. Account change. Another reason is because we have decided to change accounts and then we think it is better to close the old one to dedicate all our time and effort to the new account.
  3. Privacy issues. We all know that Instagram is a social network that belongs to Facebook and of course, we know that the social giant lives off the transfer of personal data to brands through advertising, something that logically everyone does not like and hence they decide to close your account.

If you decide delete or delete an Instagram account forever, your photos, comments, likes, friendships and all your data will be permanently deleted and you will no longer be able to recover them. In that sense, Instagram warns you, if in the future you want to create another account, you will not be able to use the same username. A security measure so that no one impersonates someone who has deleted an account. It seems logical doesn't it?

Sometimes you wonder if people who are no longer there, whether they are friends or family, should continue to exist their Instagram accounts, perhaps to keep the memory alive or not to forget the faces of those people, but the truth is that this is a decision very personal and respectable, either to eliminate it or to keep it on time.
