How to download Instagram photos, videos, and Stories


We bring you a guide on how to download Instagram photos, videos or Stories, officially and without having to install anything strange on your mobile or, you do not need to install any type of program on your computer that could endanger your device or your account on the partner network.

We are going to tell you how to download all the publications in a few simple steps. If all goes well, you will have all your Instagram data on your computer or mobile in no time. However, you must bear in mind that the time it takes to deliver your information will depend on the volume of publications on your profile.

WhatsApp now allows you to download deleted photos.

Download your data from the web version of Instagram

You can easily do this procedure from the Instagram website, although it is also very easy to do it from the application, both for Android and iOS.

Is deleting the Facebook account the same as deactivating it?

Once we have registered and accessed our profile, we must follow these steps to download all our data from the social network :

Click on the gear icon.
We access the "Privacy and security" menu.
We scroll until we locate "Download data."
We click on "Request Download."
We confirm the email (it must be the one associated with the Instagram account).
We click on send.
As reported in the screenshot above, the company can take up to 48 days to collect all the information. Once everything is done, we will receive an email with a link to download the file with all our data.

Download your photos, videos, and more from your mobile

The procedure to obtain a copy of everything you have published on Instagram from mobile is as easy as it is done on a computer; however, you must bear in mind that if you want to open the file on your phone (once it is ready), you must have the necessary space to store it, depending on the volume of shared content in your account.


Now we explain step by step how you can request a copy of your files on the phone:

First of all, enter the Instagram application enter your credentials.
Then go to your profile and select the menu of three horizontal bars located in the upper right part of the screen.
Next, you must scroll in that menu to the Configuration option. Then you should choose the Security menu.
At this point, you must scroll to the Data and History section and select the Download data option.
Now a dialog is displayed in which you must enter the email in which you will receive the link to download the content. Add your address and click on the blue button that says Request download.
When you receive that email, you will have access to an archive that will contain all of your photos, your comments, your profile information, as well as the rest of your posts. That procedure can take a couple of days to complete until you receive the message with the link to download it, just like when you ask for it from the desktop version.

Being able to download your information from Instagram allows you to have a backup of everything you have published on your profile in case you have any security problems in the future, or you simply want to use your photos for another purpose.

Now that we know how all our Instagram data is downloaded, we can only wait to see when the social network sends us the email. Being able to store our posts, comments, likes, stories, videos, etc., makes us feel safe because that way, we will know first-hand what data Instagram has about us.
