There is a huge difference between deactivating and deleting your Instagram account. To delete an Instagram account forever is different from deactivation as deleting is permanent but deactivation is temporal as you can return when you feel like so be careful what you want before you go through the delete process.
Deleting your Instagram account permanently must be done on a PC and not a phone.
Below are the steps to take:
- Log in to your account on the Instagram website.
- Go to Instagram’s ‘Delete Your Account page. Select from the drop-down menu your reason for leaving.
- Enter your password and click ‘Permanently delete my account.
- This instantly deletes your Instagram account permanently.
