5 ways to create a backup of your Instagram Photos

I’ve been reading a lot of stories lately about people who logged onto Instagram only to find that their account had been deleted for no apparent reason, without a warning. After complaints, Instagram re-opened a few of the accounts and apologised for the mistake but it’s made me realise I need to backup my photos more regularly just like I do with my blog and other accounts. I use Instagram to capture moments of my day and although my photos are nothing special I would hate to lose them!

Download your Instagram photos using Instaport

Go to Instaport, sign in, choose your settings, export and download. I love using this tool because it’s the easiest and quickest in my opinion and I love that one of the options you can choose is a time period between certain dates so you can regularly backup your photos without having multiple copies.
