How to recover deleted Instagram photos on both iOS and Android platforms

It is now possible to recover deleted stories and posts on Instagram as the Meta-owned social media platform has introduced a feature that allows users to review and recover deleted stories and posts within 24 hours. Users can also recover permanent posted or archived stories within 30 days of deleting them.


Instagram has created a new option under this new feature which is known as the ‘Recently Deleted’ folder. You can find the deleted posts in the recently deleted folder of Instagram for 30 days, even if you delete one of your posts. You can either recover the post or can permanently delete it within the time period of one month.


All photos, videos, IGTV videos, reels and stories that you delete from the app will be moved to the Recently Deleted folder for you to access the deleted content later at your discretion. Here are the steps to guide you to recover deleted posts and stories on Instagram.
