Have you deleted your Instagram post by accident, and wondered if there’s an option to restore your deleted Instagram post?
Well, the answer is Yes. You can restore deleted Instagram posts once the post hasn’t been permanently deleted.
Instagram released an update that allows users to access and restore deleted posts on their platform. So, whenever you accidentally delete your Instagram post, don’t get worried because there is a solution to retrieve your deleted post.
In this guide, I will be teaching you how to see and restore deleted Instagram posts easily and instantly.
Let’s get started.
Can I Get Back My Accidentally Deleted Instagram Posts?
The answer is Yes. You can get back any accidentally deleted post on your Instagram account supposing it has only been temporarily deleted. When I say temporarily deleted, I mean a post that got deleted not more than 30 days.
Instagram has a recently deleted feature that saves all your deleted posts for 30 days and permanently deletes them after 30 days so you can restore all your deleted that hasn’t been more than 30 days from the day you deleted them.
If for any reason, you want to hide a post on your Instagram page, you can do that by archiving the posts. When you archive an Instagram post, it takes it away from your page and keeps it somewhere safe for you to be able to access it at a later time and restore it whenever you want to.
How To See and Restore Deleted Instagram Posts
All deleted Instagram posts on your page can be seen and restored to your Instagram page within 30 days of deleting them. Once you delete an Instagram post, it gets erased from your Instagram page and saved in Instagram’s recently deleted folder where you can access and restore your posts.
During the 30 days, you can navigate to the recently deleted tab under your IG page setting to restore any deleted post.
Here’s how to restore deleted Instagram posts:
- Log in to your Instagram account
- Open your Instagram profile
- Tap on the hamburger menu found at the top right corner of your IG profile
- Navigate to “Settings” and tap on the bottom
- Select “Account”
- Tap on “Recently Deleted”
- You will be able to access all your deleted Instagram posts that have been deleted within the 30 days grace period.
- You can restore the posts you prefer by selecting and clicking on the three dots beside them
- You can choose to Restore the posts or permanently delete them.
- Tap on “Restore”
- Confirm “Restore”
- Go to your profile and see your restored posts.
Do I Get My Engagements Back When I Restore My Deleted Instagram Posts?
When you restore your deleted posts on Instagram, you get back all the engagements you had on the post before it was deleted and your posts also stand the chance of receiving more reach and engagement on the platform after it has been restored on your IG page.
Why Can’t I Restore Deleted Instagram Posts?
You only have the opportunity to restore all your IG posts that have been deleted for not more than 30 days.
Any IG post that has been deleted and has exceeded the 30 days grace period gets permanently deleted from the recently deleted folder by Instagram so there’s no way to get them back. If you also permanently delete posts from the recently deleted folder, there’s no way to get them back.
