Can I add or remove a post or comment from a memorialized account?

We’ll memorialize the account of a deceased person on Instagram when we receive a request to do so. Once memorialized, no one will be able to make changes to any of the account's existing posts or info. This includes:

  • Photos or videos added by the person to their profile
  • Comments on posts shared by the person to their profile
  • Privacy settings of their profile
  • The current profile photo, followers or people the person follows

If you feel that a post or comment on a memorialized profile doesn't follow our Community Guidelines or Terms of Use, you may report it with the report feature located next to that post or comment.
