Instagram Lets Users Export Everything They’ve Shared
Instagram now has a tool that will let users download a copy of everything they’ve shared to the network.
The tool, which can be accessed here, is currently only able to be used on desktop browsers. Access via iOS and Android will be available in the future.
Users can request a copy of their data using the tool, which will be sent to them within 48 hours via email. The email will contain a link to a file with the following information:
- Profile information
- Archived stories
- Post and story captions
- Uploaded contacts
- Usernames of followers and people you follow
- Direct messages
Instagram notes that it can only work on one request per account at a time….
