We all know that social media apps have two sides. One aspect is all good, social media entertains and educates you and the other side is dark. This side is what makes you addicted and sometimes gives wrong information. Instagram, which is one of the most popular social media apps today, also has two sides, one good and one bad. Instagram is fun and easy to use, but it doesn’t take long to get addicted.
Instagram gives two options
If you think that you also use the Instagram app and you feel that you are spending too much time on it and want to take a break from Insta, then you have two options which Instagram gives us – One ‘Deactivate’ and ‘Delete’ accounts.
Meaning of deactivating Instagram account
Deactivating an account means that you can login and come back at any time. This is a temporary option and once you log in to the app, your account becomes active again. You can deactivate your account only once a week. If you deactivate your account, your profile, photos, comments and likes will be hidden until you reactivate it by logging back in. Instagram only allows you to disable your account from a computer or mobile browser.
