Other Advantages And Protective Measures
This feature will protect your account’s data to be deleted by hackers. The algorithm works in such a way that it will first confirm your identity before letting you delete any post or picture from your account.
The limit for retrieving data is up to 30 days that works the same for the archive data. That means if any data has been deleted from the archives then it can be retrieved from the ‘Recently Deleted ‘ feature also.
For many of you who use Google Photos will find it similar in use. Instagram uses the folder just as the trash in Google Photos and gives you a chance to retrieve the data that existed there for 30 days.
Also, you can choose to delete any data permanently or can wait for 30 days for the application to delete it automatically.
