An Instagram user is always in control of the data he or she is sharing on the app. So, if anytime you want to review all the data that you have shared over the application, Instagram will provide you the required information. Instagram sends you an email with a download link, which will take you to the data you wanted to download. Instagram has a copy of everything you shared on the app, in a machine readable (JSON) format. All you need to do is follow some simple steps, like entering your account email address, password, etc. After you are done with the process, Instagram takes some time, approximately up to 48 hours, to provide you the complete data.
Some data, that you have deleted from the app, may also get temporarily restored for some security measures. But the deleted data will not appear when you access the downloaded data.
