Have you ever considered deleting your account? Although deleting an IG account is easy, it’s not as straightforward as just opening the app, going to your account details, and tapping delete. In this post, I’ll show you how to delete your Instagram account.
Understand that deleting your IG account is permanent and cannot be undone. Proceed with caution.
Seriously. Take a minute to think about what you’re about to do. Maybe go for a short walk and think about the potential repercussions before you delete your IG account. Loss of friends, missing out on important moments in people’s lives, and just an overall feeling of loneliness.
Log in to your account, and click profile button in the upper right-hand corner of the page. Select Edit Profile.
In the bottom right-hand corner of the Edit Profile page, you’ll see a link that says “I’d like to delete my account”. Click this, but don’t worry, you still have another chance to back out of your questionable decision.
On the Delete Your Account screen, you have to choose a reason why you want to delete your account. This is Instagram basically stalling and giving you time to really ponder this curious, and perhaps regrettable decision. Are you sure you really want to go through with this? Okay, then, pick a reason…
Now you have to enter your password to verify that you really want to delete your account. This prevents others from hopping on your computer and deleting your account without your authorization. It also helps you to realize the gravity of the situation. As you type each character in the password, your IG account is coming one step closer to death. You may hear a little voice inside your head softly whimpering: “nooooooo….” “don’t do this…..”
Only two more steps remain. Once the password is entered correctly, you’ll need to click on the bright red “Permanently delete my account” button in the bottom left-hand corner. Okay, seriously. All jokes aside. Do you actually want to leave all of your friends behind? Think about all of the cat pictures, latte art, and disgusting looking half-eaten food photos that you will miss.
You’ve clicked delete!!! But ah, a final lifeline. A pop-up in the browser asks you if you’re sure you really want to go through with this decision. This is the moment of truth. If you click OK here, your IG account is toast, and there’s no going back.
You’ve really done it. Your Instagram account has been deleted.
