Decided that picture probably shouldn’t have gone up on Instagram? Here are the quick steps to delete it –
- At this time, you can’t delete a photo you’ve shared on Instagram via the web (ie. http://instagram.com). You need to use the App itself. So launch Instagram from your Smartphone and go to your “home” screen. Locate the photo you want to delete and tap it.
- Tap the “more” button (the one with 3 dots on it, as illustrated in the screenshot below).
- Select Delete.
- If prompted to confirm the deletion, tap Delete
- That’s it – gone! Now keep in mind – for the time this photo was “up” – anyone could have downloaded it (if it was set to public). If it was set to private, any of your “Instagram” friends could have viewed and/or downloaded it. Now, it’s gone.
