So you’ve decided you’ve had enough with Instagram or your brand is no longer active? Here’s how you can delete your Instagram profile.

Unfortunately, you can’t delete your Instagram profile directly from the app and only from the website directly. To do that, go to the Instagram account management page.

You’ll be asked to log-in to your account at the beginning, then for a reason as to why you’re deleting your account. After this, you need to retype your password. You cannot bypass the step for why you’re deleting your account. You need to select an option to go through with the process.

Edit: If you have Two-Factor Authentication activated, be ready to access it to log in from your web browser.

Start analyzing your Instagram performance

If you’re not sure that you want to delete your Instagram account completely, you can just temporarily disable it.
