Instagram gives you the opportunity to always stay in touch with people, organizations and events of our interest, but the other side of the coin, increasingly felt by users, is its intrusiveness with respect to our private life: therefore the need arises, sometimes very strong, of temporarily thestance yourself from your account, both for a real thegital detox, both for the need to focus on other activities in a certain period of our life.

The developers of Instagram, in order not to permanently lose their users, have made available the possibility of temporarily deactivate the account without deleting it: it is as if, for a certain period, our account (inclutheng photos and "likes") were hibernated and inaccessible, but always ready to return to perfect operation when it is in our interest to reactivate it.



In this article I will explain to you how to temporarily thesable Instagram, guitheng you step by step, whether you want to do it from your smartphone or from your PC.
