Instagram has been a popular social media site and is very addicting. You can delete your Instagram account or deactivate it if you wish to change your Instagram habits.
There is a difference between these two options: Delete your Instagram account permanently and activate it temporarily so you can get your account back later.
Note: You can delete or deactivate an Instagram account using a web browser on your computer or your smartphone. It is not possible to delete or deactivate your Instagram account through the app. Here are some ways you can do both.
How to permanently delete your Instagram account?
Go to Instagram on a mobile browser or desktop computer. Log in using your username/password.
