Instagram rolled out an online tool for downloading your “photos, comments, profile information and more.” The move comes in the wake of the Facebook Cambridge Analytica controversy, and is part of that company’s efforts to increase transparency. So far, the tool is available only on the browser version of Instagram, with the company working on deploying it on iOS and Android.

According to TechCrunch, the service lets you download, “photos, videos, archived Stories, profile, info, comments, and non-ephemeral messages.” Instagram said, “it may take up to 48 hours to collect this data and send it to you.”
