You can now download your Instagram photos and data through the new “Data Download” tool. The option – first reported by Techcrunch earlier this month – moves Instagram towards the trend of “data portability.”
You can find the new tool in the “Privacy and Security” section of the settings on the Instagram website. The iOS and Android versions of the tool are still being rolled out, according to Techcrunch.
It can take up to 48 hours for Instagram to manually collect and send you the data, which includes all information after December 2017. Specifically, you can expect to receive the following: Post and stories, profile info, contacts, usernames of followers and those you follow, messages, comments, likes, searches, and settings.
The Data Download tool complies with the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that takes effect next month. The idea is that users can take their photos and data and move to a competitor’s service if desired. Read more, here.
