Delete Instagram Account
Why Delete Instagram account?

Social media is a blessing but can also be very distracting and time-consuming. Everyone nowadays seems to be living in the real world and the virtual world as well; Instagram alone counts more than 1 billion Instagram Profiles. This massive bunch of data consists of your friends, celebrities, and people who like to do the same stuff as you, and travel to the places you want to see! 

This platform is used for entertainment purposes and advertising also! Many businesses find their customers scrolling around on Instagram and get their full attention to view their pictures or videos in a heartbeat. 

On this platform, people mostly post pictures and videos. Users can also chat on this platform, similar to how they do on Facebook since IG does also have a messaging option. Recently Instagram updated its app so that you can even activate *vanish mode* to send disappearing messages on this platform. 

However, people can get tired even of good things!  After a while it can feel like posting on this platform becomes too much of a chore and consumes too much of your life. Some people might want to simply delete their account! 

If you’re considering getting rid of Instagram then no worries, you can easily do that, temporarily or for good. Your data such as photos, account history, followers, likes, comments will be permanently deleted! Also, your username isn’t secure either, somebody else can take it once you permanently delete your account.
