How to Easily Delete All Instagram Posts at Once

Instagram is a popular platform for sharing photos and videos with friends, family, and followers. However, there may come a time when you want to change the theme of your profile or simply get rid of old posts without deleting your entire account. Thankfully, Instagram provides a native feature that allows you to delete posts in bulk, without the need for a third-party app. In this article, we will guide you through the process of deleting all your Instagram posts quickly and easily.

How to Mass Delete Instagram Posts on Android or iPhone

To delete multiple posts on Instagram, you will need to use the mobile app on your Android or iPhone device. Unfortunately, this feature is not available on the web version of Instagram. Follow these simple steps to delete your Instagram posts:

  1. Launch the Instagram app and go to your profile screen.
  2. Tap on the three horizontal lines icon at the top and choose “Your activity” from the menu.
  3. Tap on “Posts” under “Content you shared”. Alternatively, if you want to delete multiple Reels, tap on “Reels”.

  5. Tap on the “Delete” button after selecting the desired posts.

Once you delete the selected Instagram posts, they will be moved to the “Recently deleted” section. If you accidentally delete a post, don't worry! You can recover it within 30 days of deletion.

How to Archive or Hide All Instagram Photos

If you don't want to permanently delete your Instagram posts but still want to hide them from your feed, you can archive them instead. Follow the steps mentioned above to select the posts you want to hide, and instead of tapping on “Delete”, tap on the “Archive” button. This will move the posts to your archive, where you can view them anytime.

To view your archived posts, go to “Your activity” and tap on “Archived”. From there, you can choose to unarchive any post and make it visible on your profile again.
