Can you opt out of disclosing your Personally Identifiable Information (PII)?



Can you find out when the privacy policy was last updated? Can you see older versions?

Yes: January 19, 2013. Prior privacy policies are also available through a link.


Can you permanently delete information that you previously provided?

No. Only by deleting your account, and “following termination or deactivation of your account, Instagram, its Affiliates, or its Service Providers may retain information (including your profile information) and User Content for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, and/or audit purposes.”
