Can I delete my Instagram Account and Data associated with it ?
 
Hey guys!
Seriously it is very much annoying to know that your data is being sold and used by millions of companies just to target you with their advertisements.
I have deactivated my account, I also knew my data that is being used had so many private conversations, and I’m feeling sick now.
I have deactivated it, but don’t know that following these steps and procedures will definitely remove my whole data from the internet or not? However I followed these steps but did not know whether it will help me delete my account or not, as more or less every guide shows the same steps.
In knowing that after deactivation, I can log back in any time, it means my data is still there when deactivated, so the chances are that when I delete my whole account my data will still be there.
Because a security researcher has discovered a massive cache of data for millions of Instagram accounts, publicly accessible for everyone to see. The account included sensitive information that would be useful to cyberstalkers, among others. As per study that I have read
Reference to the news.
Due to such news I am much more concerned with the data that I post/we post online, so are there any ways around to remove it.
Like I want to delete my Instagram account and facebook account too, however I have deactivated them for the time, till I get the proper solution to this.
Your thoughts?

The irony of asking this on a forum that probably has even less security than the social networking sites does not escape me!

I actually thought this was a VPN ad/spam or something. I didn't click on the links at all.

I don't have FB or IG or anything except a few forums, so I wasn't too interested in the topic, TBH.

Account only 2 posts, and drives a corolla. This should be deleted, or at very least remove the links in original post.

Yep. As always the very first thing I do when something like this comes up is check the other posts. Be interesting to know that as a "writher" he did indeed write what he is referencing. I did not click links either.

Guessing you're a bot, because as with any social media account these days it's literally common sense to press the settings button, scroll to where it says account/delete account, and delete.

You can't take back your virginity and the same goes for that you can't take back whatever you put online. It belongs to ALL OF US now.

I don't know why, but you all started saying me a spammer?
I quoted what I saw, that's all I said,
I am not a tech guy so that's why I posted a similar question to another forum as well and got a positive response because I wasn't a newbie there.

Stop quoting me, or my first post, or what I drive, that's kind of something hate speech, you guys are doing with me.
Well doesn't matter: you can delete that post because I got my answer from other sources.
Thanks for making this a ruined thread. @all

Tell me one thing, a new guy in the forum can't own corolla?
or should I show you my assets?

Delete your internet and never return

Well let's see here...
Show up on a car forum driving something else. Nothing wrong but looks weird.
First post claim to be a freelance writer. Pretty bad writing though (as highlighted). No comments on the car the forum is for at all.
Second post is a totally random subject that the answer could be found in 20 seconds anyplace on the internet.
Post contains links to items that are the very definition of spam. These links had to be removed by a moderator.
Come back two months later and call us out for responding to your bullshit spam post and call us haters? You were really concerned weren't you?
Easy solution is to just not log in. You managed to go two months without doing it.
