In a report by TechCrunch, Instagram has made it public its plans of allowing users to download a copy of their data. An Instagram spokesperson said to Techcrunch after the latter released a post about the lack of data portability on the service.
The details of this feature are yet to be stamped and Instagram did not broadly expound right now. We don’t know to what degree would the organization permit going down the user information, regardless of whether it will be restricted to just giving users a chance to download all the photographs and videos they have uploaded until this point or will they likewise be getting a backup of the Stories they have archived and every one of the messages they have sent.
Facebook has had a far-reaching backup facility for a long time now, so it’s fairly disappointing it took Instagram this long to do it. It’s presumably that the move has come as a reaction to the developing doubt for the organization among users, a significant number of which are no uncertainty hoping to take their information somewhere else, or if nothing else far from Facebook. So far Instagram bolted all the data transferred to it, with no simple method to download any of it back. Some third-party services exist which allow you to do it, but the trustworthiness of these services is always a suspect.
Luckily, nobody would need to use these service once Instagram rolls out the feature natively. At the point when precisely that should happen is starting at yet obscure.
