Instagram Will Soon Let Users Download A Copy Of Their Data

"You'll soon be able to download a copy of what you've shared on Instagram, including your photos, videos and messages", a spokesperson said.

GDPR comes into effect on 25 May, which means the coming month will probably include a flurry of announcements similar to Instagram's.

Another benefit of the data portability tool is how it can make quitting Instagram easier. "From a data perspective, it noted, Facebook and Instagram are the same". They will get all the shared items from their profile downloaded, including Photos, Videos and more. Meanwhile, Facebook had introduced this functionality in 2010.

Instagram has unveiled its latest feature - entitled "Focus" - similar in nature to what Apple now offers with its portrait mode in the iPhone 7 and beyond.

Also, it is not clear that whether you will be able to see the downloaded videos and the photos which are in the same resolution and which can be easily be seen and liked. There is also the question of quality of the photos and videos. However, Instagram has lacked such feature.

Some of the NGOs that could be hit by the new law said they expected a hardening in the new government's stance. The party surged back to power on the back of their leader's racially-charged right-wing rhetoric.

Instagram is preparing to launch a new fun and interactive way that will allow you to add friends on the social platform feature.

The tool will be helpful for users who want to extract what they have uploaded to Instagram.

In its absence, users are tied to the social network and have to rely on potentially shady third-party data extraction apps. In a blog post at the end of March announcing changes to how Facebook explains its policies, a bullet point, with the header "One Company", addressed public confusion about Instagram.

The tool could help Instagram users monitor how much of their data is on the platform. You can download this update version 39.0 for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android in Google Play Store. But the major news here is the coming of data portability on Instagram after years of its inception. Let us know in the comments.
