How do I delete my account?

When you delete your account, your profile, photos, videos, comments, likes and followers will be permanently removed.

To delete your account:

  1. Log into from a mobile browser or computer. You can't delete your account from within the Instagram app.
  2. Click your username in the top right and then select Edit Profile.
  3. Click I'd like to delete my account in the bottom right.

For security reasons, we can't delete an account for you. You’ll need to be able to log into your account to delete it. If you can't remember your password or username, see some tips for logging in.

Keep in mind that we can't reactivate your account, and you can't sign up with the same username again after the account has been deleted. If you don't want to delete your account but want to change who can see it, you can set your posts to private or block people.

If you're unable to delete your account in your settings, delete your account here.
