How to deactivate an Instagram account temporarily

Do you need to take a break from Instagram or take a break to decide if you want to continue on the social network? Today we are going to teach you how to temporarily deactivate an Instagram account. We are not referring to permanently deleting your Instagram account, but to temporarily suspending it so that you can reactivate the account just by logging into the social network again.

One of the peculiarities of this function is that you cannot temporarily deactivate the account from your mobile, that is, you will have to take some time to sit in front of your PC and enter to be able to do so. Even so, it is a quick process, that is, it will not take more than a couple of minutes.

The first thing you have to do is enter the profile editing option. For that, once you are identified on the Instagram website, click on the head icon that you have at the top right to enter your profile. Once you are in it, you just have to click on the Edit profile option that you will see next to your username.

When you enter the profile editing page through the web, just at the bottom after the biography and the rest of your data you have a link called Temporarily deactivate my account. Click on it to start the deactivation process.

This process is simple, you only have to choose in a drop-down tab the reason why you want to temporarily deactivate your profile and enter your password for security. Once done, all you have to do is click on the Temporarily disable the account button. When you do, your photos, comments, and likes will be hidden until you decide to reactivate your account, which will be done automatically by logging in again.
