  1. Open your Instagram app and click on your profile icon located at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Next, tap on the hamburger menu (the three horizontal lines) in the top right corner.
  3. From the menu, select “Settings.”

Step 2: Access Account Management

  1. Within the Settings page, scroll down and tap on “Help.”
  2. In the Help section, choose “Help Center.” This will take you to a new page.

Step 3: Navigate to Account Deletion

  1. Things get a bit tricky here, but we’ve got your back. Tap on the new hamburger menu again.
  2. Select “Manage Your Account.”
  3. You’ll see the option “Delete Your Account.” However, hold on – this is another sub-menu. Choose “Temporarily Deactivate Your Instagram Account” instead. This step is crucial if you intend to delete your account permanently.

Step 4: The Final Stages

  1. Scroll down in the “Temporarily Deactivate Your Instagram Account” section until you find the “Delete Your Instagram Account” link.
  2. Tap on the link, then navigate to “Android App Help.”
  3. Scroll a bit more and find “Instagram.com from a Mobile Browser.”
  4. Click on “Go to the Delete Your Account Page” within this section.

Step 5: Follow the Deletion Process

  1. You’ll be asked to state the reason for deleting your account. Choose any reason that fits – it doesn’t matter which.
  2. Enter your account password when prompted.
  3. Finally, click the button to confirm your account deletion. This is your last chance to change your mind.

Conclusion: Your Account is Deleted

Once you’ve completed these steps, Instagram will start the process of deleting your account. Your online presence will be immediately deactivated, and the deletion process may take up to 30 days (or even up to 90 days in some cases) to be fully completed. Rest assured that, from your side, the necessary steps have been taken, and your account is on its way to being permanently deleted.
