Instagram adds ‘recently deleted’ feature

Must read


With the addition of “recently deleted,” Instagram says it will require users to verify their identities by text or email before they can restore a post or permanently delete it. The extra step is basically a form of two-step verification to purge posts from the app (but, more importantly, do not a substitute for use two-factor authentication to protect your account in the first place).

Of course, if you are locked out of your account due to a hack, you will not be able to immediately access your deleted posts. And coming back to a compromised Instagram account can in itself be a tough task. But at least it will be harder for a hacker to erase all of your posts while you are making your way through Instagram media.
