How to delete an Instagram post?
If you would like to delete one of your Instagram posts, then follow the steps below:
- Go to Instagram and login to your Instagram account if you haven’t already;
- Locate the post that you would like to delete. Tap 3-dot icon at the top right corner of the post;
- From the drop-down menu, select “Delete”;
- Select “Delete” one more time again to confirm that you really want to delete this post. Done!
After you delete your Instagram post, it won’t be visible neither to you or your followers. Keep in mind, you will not be able to bring deleted post back after you delete it. So, after you delete your post it is gone forever!
Use archive feature instead
If you are in doubt and don’t know whether you will need this post later, then I would recommend to use Archive feature instead.
By archiving your Instagram post it won’t be visible to your followers, however, you will still be able to view it in a separate folder with a possibility to re-publish it later.
All the archived posts are saved in a separate Archive folder which is accessible only by you. It is important to mention that all the archived posts also save all of the likes and comments that they have gathered. So, this is a really great alternative to deleting.
