    If you don't want to use Instagram anymore, you can delete an Instagram account permanently. Once you are done, your photos, videos, subscribers and any other information related to your account will be permanently deleted and you will not be able to reuse the same username. If you do not want to delete all this data, you can also temporarily deactivate the account, which we will see in another article.
