Temporarily deactivate Instagram: what it means

Before explaining to you how to disable instagram temporarily, I want to provide you with some preliminary information relating to this operation. In fact, you must know that the temporary deactivation of the account is a procedure that differs from the permanent deletion of the same, as it is reversible.

The temporary deactivation of the account means, on a practical level, that the profile, photos, comments and “likes” associated with it are temporarily hidden. The reactivation of the temporarily disabled account can therefore be carried out at any time as, to do so, simply log in to your account again with the login data (e-mail e Password) to find everything as before.



Furthermore, I must also inform you that the deactivation of the account (as well as the deletion) is a very simple procedure to carry out; however the only way to do this is to proceed through the use of the web browser, by connecting to the official website of the well-known photographic social network. It is therefore not possible to carry out the operation in question through the app Instagram for Android, iOS and not even through the one for Windows 10.

Having clarified this, if you are interested in understanding which are, specifically, the steps to be taken in order to proceed with the intent you have proposed, continue reading: you will find everything explained below.
