Instagram will soon allow users to download their data

Focus: Instagram's New Camera Format In Stories

It is interesting to note that Instagram's parent company Facebook does allow its users to download a copy of their data. The tool will allow users to download data including their photos, videos and messages, he added. So far Instagram locked all the information uploaded to it, with no easy way to download any of it back. Anyways, Instagram has now confirmed to TechCrunch that such tool will be made available soon. While the new tool will comply with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), it would also double as a locally-stored backup of the feeds.

It would also help famous figures and businesses in visually promoting their Instagram accounts by posting their Nametag on other platforms or printing it on posters to gather more followers. However we suppose eventually there might come the day that Instagram might shutter its services, so what will happen to all our photos and videos then?

The full scope of Instagram's data portability tool isn't clear.

Did you try the new "Focus Mode" feature of Instagram? Moving away from the new camera mode, Stories' users will now also have access to a new user mention sticker.

Madrid has won three Champions League titles in the last four seasons, including the last two in a row. Coming here, having paid more than for Cristiano, of course it was a handicap for him.

According to reports, users will soon find an option on Instagram that will allow them to download our images and videos.

Instagram today announced two new features it's bringing to its app for iOS and Android.

Techcrunch notes that, like Snapcodes, Nametags could eventually be used by influencers across social media as a seamless promotional tool - given that they do away with the need to search for users by hand.

Until Instagram doesn't implement a solid data portability feature, applications like InstaPort, which allow the users to port their Instagram data via third party apps may keep their shady work going.
