Want to take a break from Instagram? That is very reasonable. Instead of deleting the app or your profile, try temporarily deactivating your Instagram account. If you can come back in a month, everything will be exactly like you left the social network.
How to temporarily disable your Instagram account
If you temporarily disable your Instagram account, your profile will be deleted from the social network for a certain period of time. that you want outside the site. Your Instagram URL will be invalid, users will not be able to find you in the search results and they will not be able to contact you. These features are restored when you reactivate your account.
You can temporarily deactivate your Instagram account, regardless of whether it is a personal account, a creator account or a business account.
Strangely, you cannot disable your account through the Instagram app on iPhone or Android. You should use the Instagram website instead.
Start by opening the Instagram website on your desktop or smartphone browser and log in with the account you want to disable.

Next, go to your Profile tab and select the "Edit Profile" option.
Alternatively, you can use this link to jump directly to the "Edit Profile" screen.
Scroll down here and select the link "Temporarily disable my account".
Instagram will now ask you why you want to deactivate your account. You can select a reason from the drop-down menu. If you don't want to specify a reason, select the "Something else" option.
After making the choice, enter your Instagram password.
Tap the blue button "Temporarily disable account" at the bottom of the screen for the second time. Instagram asks you to confirm that you want to continue for the third time. Tap the "Yes" button in the pop-up.
Your Instagram account will now be disabled and you will be logged out from the Instagram app on your smartphone. To confirm, you can try to search for your Instagram username. Instagram will tell you that the user doesn't exist or they haven't posted anything yet.
How to reactivate your Instagram account
You can come back at any time and reactivate your disabled Instagram account. All you need is your username and password. If you have forgotten your password, you can try to reset it.
