Instagram Will Soon Let You Download All Your Photos

Instagram-introduces-new-portrait-mode--mention-sticker-in-Stories

However, eight years after its launch, anything a user posts to Instagram is trapped on Instagram. Treasured photos and videos can sometimes get lost in their original form, but now there are few ways to easily access the high-resolution originals if they have been posted on the social network. While Instagram saves a copy of the media content to a users' device at the time of upload, there's no separate button that lets users re-download the content at a later time.

The Facebook-owned photo and video-sharing social networking service Instagram has recently released a new feature called "Focus" to be used in Stories.

"We are building a new data portability tool", an Instagram spokesman said in an email on Wednesday.

Instagram today announced two new features it's bringing to its app for iOS and Android.

Comey Says Trump Is Like a 'Mob Boss' in Upcoming Interview
Comey begins a national tour next week in support of his book, " A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies & Leadership". Republicans are attempting to portray Comey as a liar and political operative with no credibility .

"We'll share more details very soon when we actually launch the tool", Instagram told TechCrunch's Josh Constine. This becomes easier for users to switch to another image from the social media sharing platform along with their Instagram data.

Apple is also to be working on its privacy tools with a new Apple ID tool that will allow users to download all their personal information.

Amid the Facebook and Cambridge Analytica scandal, Instagram is now taking steps to allow users to have some control on their data. Since Instagram is owned by Facebook, the tool will definitely be there for millions of its users around the globe.

Based on the official comment, it sounds like the tool may be limited to the "big" data - image, photos, and messages, leaving other things like follower lists and stories behind. Also, Instagram hasn't made it clear if the downloaded videos and photos would be in the same resolution in which they were uploaded.
