Deleting your Facebook, Instagram, or WhatsApp account is not as easy as tapping a delete button, like some other apps. There is a process to follow if you want to delete your account on these apps and this article is here to help you with that. Let’s start with the deleting of your account on the Instagram app.
How to delete your Instagram account
The first thing to do is to go to the Instagram website and log in to the account you want deleted. Once you’ve logged in, tap on settings and scroll until you see ‘help’ and tap on it. On the help page, there are three choices, tap on ‘help centre’. Once you are on the ‘help centre’ page, click on the search bar below ‘hi, how can we help you’ and type in ‘delete your account’. You will be taken to a page giving you three options, the options you should focus on should be either to disable your account temporarily or delete your account.
If you want to delete your account permanently, pick the ‘delete your account’ option. Instagram has a few words written to make sure you understand and want to delete your account. The picture below is what you will see when you pick the ‘delete your account’ option. Once you see that, just follow the three steps laid out and in a few minutes your Instagram account will be deleted.

Tap ‘continue to account deletion’ and select ‘delete account’. Your account should be no more after following these steps.
