As of this Thursday (30), every application made available on the App Store that allows the creation of registration by cell phone must also offer the user the possibility to delete the account through the platform. This change should especially hit developers who try to make it harder to delete their account by targeting an external website.
Instagram was one of those apps that did not allow the user to close the account on the service on the cell phone, however, the developer released today (30) a new option that allows you to delete the profile on the social network without having to log in through the browser, an improvement that has been awaited for a long time. plenty of time for the community.
As explained by a spokesperson for Meta, the company responsible for Instagram, users can choose to temporarily suspend the account or, in definitive cases, delete the account through the application itself downloaded from the iPhone and iPad store, in addition to the browser function that was kept.
If you decide to delete the account, the user can still reverse the process within 30 days of the deletion request, as with Facebook.
