Instagram launches “Data Download” tool

Instagram launches “Data Download” tool. Instagram’s  “Data Download” feature can be accessed here or through the app’s privacy settings. It lets users export their data; though it can take a few hours to days for your download to be ready.

An Instagram spokesperson now confirms to Tridence that “the Data Download tool is currently accessible to everyone on the web, but access via iOS and Android is still rolling out. This download contains all your profile info, photos, videos, archived Stories (those posted after December 2017), your post and story captions, your uploaded contacts, the usernames of your followers and the people you follow, Direct messages, non-ephemeral Direct message photos and videos, comments, Likes, searches, and settings. Whew!

The tool’s launch is necessary for Instagram to comply with the data portability rule in European Union’s GDPR privacy law that goes into effect on May 25th. Back up today!
