How to Delete Your Instagram Account - 2022 Update

Want to delete your Instagram account but don't know how? Well, if you no longer want to keep using Instagram, then you're in the right place. Just keep in mind that once you delete your Instagram account, your profile, photos, videos and all data associated with your account will be permanently deleted within 30 days of the request and they can never be retrieved again.
