How do I disconnect contacts syncing on Instagram?
This feature is only available on the Instagram app for Android and iPhone.
Disconnecting contacts syncing on Instagram will delete your synced contacts and stop Instagram from recommending accounts to follow based on your device's contact list. If you’d like to disconnect your contacts, you can turn off contacts syncing.
To disconnect your contacts from the Instagram app for Android and iPhone:
  1. Tap profile or your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  2. Tap more options in the top right, then tap settingsSettings.
  3. Tap Account, then tap Contacts Syncing.
  4. Tap switch on next to Connect Contacts to turn off contact syncing.
  5. Tap Disconnect. Your previously synced contacts will be deleted.
Note: You cannot delete individual contacts from contacts syncing, but you can delete all of your synced contacts at any time.
