If everything is so good, then why leave Instagram?
But why. Some time ago Instagram was an innocent social network for users iPhone, where they shared their photos. But when a version for Android and the acquisition of Instagram by Facebook, other times have come.
Marketers and PR people do not give a quiet life to users, striving to lure those into some new campaign and actively filling up with advertising. Another significant minus: the administration of the photo-social network reserves the right to use images, including commercial, and this does not go into any gates.
People who do not want annoying advertising and the ability to use and view personal photos by outsiders are thinking about how to delete their page.
The good news: in order to do this, you only need login and password to enter the Instagram account. Ready? Go.

How to delete the Instagram page directly through the application from the phone or tablet?
Answer: No way. An attempt to delete a page directly from the phone will not work, the application does not have such a function. If you "tear down" the application itself, it will not affect the existence of your account in any way – as it was, it will remain so.
You have to go to the official site through a browser (better from a computer, it’s more convenient from it), and use one of the two previous methods. Use the browser and the site from the phone, not the application!
Notes about deleting your Instagram profile
- Now there is an opportunity to disconnect and then renew your account, such as, for example, Vkontakte, it’s real, Instagram has implemented such an opportunity;
- There are no ways to restore a page after a complete deletion (second method) in the application. If you already managed to leave and now want to return to Instagram, you will have to start all over again. You cannot use the same mail and name that you had before, get ready to come up with new ones;
- Everything that was in your account (video, photo, etc.) is deleted from the service along with your page, so take care to save your dear work in advance! You can upload them to other photo sharing services or save to yourself.

Regardless of whether you “erase” it completely or just remove your photos and other materials from the public domain, remember – social networks exist for you, not you for social networks. Do as you personally feel comfortable.
