Before we delve into the heart of this guide and see it in detail how to disable Instagram from iPhone, let me provide you with some preliminary information which you absolutely cannot ignore before proceeding.
To go into more detail, I want to explain the difference between deactivating Instagram temporarily, deleting the profile permanently and removing an account from the Instagram app, since these are three very different things.
By deactivating the profile temporarily, everything related to your account is hidden: the “likes” put on the posts, the comments made and even your own account will be unobtainable. However, this is an operation that can be easily canceled by logging in again to the account itself: as if by "magic", everything will be as before.
The same goes for the simple removing an account from the Instagram app. If you have added multiple accounts in the latter, by removing one, it will not be deleted: it will simply be removed from the app and will continue to be visible to the rest of the community as well.
The discourse changes considerably as regards thepermanent deletion of an Instagram profile: in this case, all data attributable to the deleted account (posts, comments, “likes”, followers, followed users, etc.), will be deleted forever and it will no longer be possible to recover them.
Before proceeding, therefore, carefully evaluate which of these three operations you wish to complete and then make use of the instructions I am about to give you, so as to be able to carry out it without problems.
