Vanish Mode and Co-watching are two recent Instagram features that are fantastic and a lot of fun. However, if I were to select one new feature that has proved to be incredibly useful, it would be the Recently Removed feature. It helps you to recover deleted Instagram posts in just a few taps. So, if you delete an article, story, Reels, or IGTV video by mistake, you can easily recover it on Instagram. So, with that in mind, let’s get started learning how to use this feature and retrieve lost Instagram images.
Instagram: Restore Deleted Posts (2021)
Before we get started, it’s important to note that you can only recover deleted Instagram posts within 30 days of their deletion. This applies to Instagram updates, Reels, and IGTV footage. Instagram Stories, on the other hand, can be restored within 24 hours of being deleted. However, if you’ve allowed the Stories Archive option, the 30-day window would also extend to Stories. Now that we’ve established that, let’s move on to the guide.
A. First, go to Instagram and go to your profile page. Open “Settings” by tapping the hamburger menu on the top-right page.
B. Next, go to “Account” and select “Recently Deleted” from the drop-down screen.
C. All of your missing things, including tweets, stories, Reels, and IGTV files, can be found here. For starters, if I want to recover a deleted Instagram message, I can open it and select the 3-dot menu.
D. Now all you have to do is tap “Restore” and confirm the dialogue box. You’ll be guided to the authentication tab. You must verify your identity using an OTP sent to your phone number or email address. The deleted post will be reinstated on your Instagram profile page after authentication.
And that’s how you can get your Instagram deleted things back within 30 days. I assume Instagram has introduced a brilliant feature that will be incredibly useful to users who have unintentionally lost articles or stories. However, bear in mind that the deleted objects will be automatically wiped from Instagram after 30 days, so recover them before the time limit expires.
