How do I archive live videos I shared on Instagram?

Live videos you share on Instagram are automatically saved in your Live Archive, so there's no need to save them to your phone. You can turn off Live Archive at any time in Settings.

To turn Live Archive on or off:

  1. Tap or your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  2. Tap in the top right, then tap instagram-settingsSettings.
  3. Tap Privacy, then tap Story.
  4. Scroll down and tap next to Save Live to Archive.

Note that only you can see the live videos saved in your archive after your live video ends. Live videos are only archived for 30 days. You won’t be able to access your live video after 30 days.
