About two weeks ago, Instagram announced that it would soon offer a way for users to download all of their data, including photos, videos, and messages. Instagram made detailed the promise in the wake of Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal and Mark Zuckerburg’s congressional hearings.
“We are building a new data portability tool. You’ll soon be able to download a copy of what you’ve shared on Instagram, including your photos, videos and messages.”
Now the social media service has launched its data download tool via the web. And according to an Instagram spokesperson, the Data Download tool is currently accessible to everyone on the web, but access via iOS and Android is still rolling out.
To download a copy of what you’ve shared on Instagram, you can access the data download tool on the web here. It work’s just like Facebook’s where you’ll receive a download link via email within 48 hours.
