How to Disable Instagram: You are probably feeling like you have to capture every single moment of your existence and put out for the world, or perhaps you’re tired of seeing the seemingly perfect pictures of everyone else’s life. If you’re tired of juggling multiple accounts and it probably takes most of your time, you can deactivate your account.
Thankfully, deactivating your Instagram account requires just a few clicks and confirmations on the Instagram website. This permits you to deactivate your account for a brief period of time, and you can still access it later. When you do this, your account is hidden from public view immediately, but all of your content- like your photos, comments, and likes – are still retained and can be reinstated when and if you choose to reactivate your account.
