How to Delete Your Instagram Account (and Save Your Images)

by Range

Even though Instagram did a 180 this week, after announcing that they could use everyone’s photos to make money, you never know what might happen to your content with these kind of free services. So if you’re done with Instagram, here’s how to safely backup your photos and port them onto another service, like Flickr.

Download all of your photos through Instaport. You’ll get your entire photo library in a few minutes in a .zip file. Once you’ve done this, you can upload them again, let’s say to Flickr since their new app is pretty cool. Soon, Instaport will support direct export to Flickr and Facebook, but for now you need to manually upload them to another service (or just save them locally).¬†Once all your photos are removed from Instagram, you can delete your account.

Keep in mind that Instagram won’t let you reactivate a deactivated account, and you will not be able to sign up again with the same account name.
