deactivate your Instagram account Enjoy some time off from Instagram without losing every one of your supporters and posts: rather than erasing your record, you can simply impair it for a specific timeframe. Once more this is, a choice that you can use in a program. Sign into Instagram in a program on your PC or cell phone. Open your profile and afterward snap or tap "Alter profile". Look down. On the base right snap "Briefly debilitate my record". You'll need to pick a response to tell Instagram why you need to impair your record. In the wake of picking a response, you'll see the choice to deactivate your record. Remerge your secret word. And afterward snap or tap "Briefly Disable Account".
