How To Delete Saved Posts On Instagram

Deleting saved posts on Instagram is a simple process that can help you declutter your feed and manage your saved collections more effectively. To delete saved posts on Instagram, there are different methods depending on the device you are using.

On the Instagram app for iPhone, you can unsave all saved posts at once. Open the app, go to your profile, tap the menu button, select “Saved,” open the “All Posts” directory, tap the three-dot icon, and select “Select all.” Then tap “Unsave” to delete all saved posts.

On Android, you can’t delete all saved posts at once. Instead, you have to manually select and unsave each post individually. Open the app, go to your profile, tap the menu button, select “Saved,” open the “All Posts” directory, tap the three-dot icon, select “Select,” choose the posts you want to unsave, and tap “Unsave.”

On a desktop browser, you can’t bulk remove saved posts directly on Instagram. However, you can use the Chrome extension called “Unsaver for Instagram” to delete all saved posts. Install the extension, go to Instagram.com, log in, click your profile photo, select “Saved,” open the “All Posts” folder, click “Select All,” and click “Unsave” to remove all saved posts.

When deleting saved posts, keep in mind that Instagram doesn’t delete anyone’s collections or posts unless they violate the platform’s terms of use. Posts can only disappear from a user’s collection if the person who posted them decides to delete them.

It’s recommended to regularly clean up and organize your saved collections on Instagram to keep your account more manageable.
