Facebook recently added a feature to let users download Instagram data. This is similar to the Facebook download tool and includes everything associated with your profile.

[Here’s How You Can Download Facebook Data From Your Profile]

Download Instagram Data

You’ll need a laptop or desktop to download your data; it’s not possible with the Instagram app.

Download Instagram data in a browser on a laptop or desktop.

  1. Go to www.instagram.com and log in.
  2. Click on the person icon in the upper right to go to your profile.
  3. Next to where it says Edit Profile, click the gear icon.
  4. Click Privacy and Security.
  5. Scroll down until you see Data Download, and click the link under it that says Request Download.

Follow the on-screen instructions to get a copy of your data emailed to you. I was able to get a copy within 10 minutes, although the length of time may depend on how much data you have. The data you’ll receive include: Photos, videos, comments, connections, contacts, likes, messages, searches, and settings.
