How to Deactivate Your Instagram Account

  • calendar Last Updated

Instagram can be a super fun social outlet that we all have to admit, we've occasionally spent way too much time on. But as with all social media platforms, Instagram has its good sides and its bad sides. Whether it's becoming too much of a time-waster or causing too much anxiety when you've looked at one too many ads or political posts, sometimes you just need a break.

If Instagram is taking too much of your time at this moment in your life, or causing too much stress, try deactivating it for a while until you’re able to balance your time more wisely and/or you are ready to see what’s new once again with your family, friends, and the world. Deactivating your account is usually a wiser option in the beginning than deleting, as many find after a break, they wish they had their account once again and regret having lost those connections, progress, and posts of their original Instagram.

Whatever the reason for deactivation, it’s always easy to reactivate your Instagram account by logging back in. All you have to do is enter your password and wait for the app to load.
