How to download everything from your Instagram, from photos to messages

Contrary to what was expected, many people are abandoning social networks in these times of pandemic, quarantine and social isolation. If you are one of those people, know that it is possible to save your data from Instagram, just like done on Facebook and Twitter.

And that includes not only your photos and profile information, but also messages and comments. If you do not intend to abandon social networks, you can take the opportunity to download the file with your data, as a backup.

Check step by step:

On PC

1. Open Instagram in your internet browser. Click the gear on your profile page.

How to just view your data

Curious to see everything you've published, commented and seen on Instagram? You can view your entries on the social network without having to download anything. The platform allows you to see your activity from the day you signed up for it, even the ads you were interested in.

To check your history, proceed as if you were going to download your data. However, instead of choosing this option, click on "Access data" (on the PC the item appears as "Account data").

You will be able to see everything you have done so far on the platform (including advertisements).
