Delete or Disable Instagram without Username or Password
It is not possible to delete or disable an Instagram account without knowing the username and password for that account. This is a security measure to protect the account from unauthorized access. If you have forgotten the username or password for your Instagram account, you can try to recover it by following these steps:
- Open the Instagram app or go to the Instagram website.
- Click on the “Forgot password?” link on the login screen.
- Enter your email address or phone number associated with your Instagram account.
- Follow the prompts to reset your password.
If you are unable to recover your account, you may need to create a new account with a different username.
If you are unable to access the email address or phone number associated with your Instagram account, or if you no longer want to use the account, you can submit a request to have the account permanently deleted. To do this, you will need to contact Instagram through the Help Center:
Is There Any Way to Get My Account Back After Deletion?
It is generally not possible to recover a deleted account, especially if it has been permanently deleted. Once an account is deleted, the user’s data is typically removed from the company’s servers, and it is not possible to retrieve it. However, if the account was deleted recently, you may be able to contact the company and ask if they can restore it. You will need to provide them with as much information as possible about your account, including your name, email address, and account details.
Keep in mind that the ability to restore a deleted account will depend on the policies and procedures of the specific company or service. Some companies may have a process in place for restoring deleted accounts, while others may not. If the account has been permanently deleted and it is not possible to restore it, you may need to create a new account if you want to continue using the service.
