Have you ever deleted an Instagram post and later regretted deleting it later? It happens to all of us. We delete some posts in a spur-of-the-moment decision only to realize we shouldn’t have deleted them at all. And then, we want them back.
Thankfully, Instagram is quite familiar with the instincts of its users and knows how to fix such rushed decisions. The Archive option on Instagram is the border between deleting shared posts permanently and keeping them uploaded.
By archiving the posts that you don’t want to share with others anymore, you can save them privately in your account so that no one except you can see them. Whenever you change your mind, you can just send the archived posts back to your profile for everyone to see again.
As much as archiving the posts is a savior, there is one limitation: bulk archiving. On one of those rare occasions, you might want to archive many, why, even all of your posts. Here’s the problem: although archiving a single post is a no-brainer, mass archiving Instagram posts doesn’t seem so simple. This blog will explore if and how you can mass archive posts on Instagram. Let’s start.
How to Mass Archive Instagram Posts
Archiving a post on Instagram, as you know, is everything but difficult. All it takes is a few taps. However, if you are not much familiar with the process of archiving a post, here are the steps:
Step 1: Open Instagram and make sure that you are logged in.
Step 2: Go to your Profile section by tapping on your profile photo at the bottom-right corner.
Step 3: You will see all your posts in the Profile section. Locate the post you want to archive and tap on it to view it.
Step 4: Once the post appears on the screen, tap on the three dots (called ellipsis) at the top-right corner of the post to open a list of several options.
Step 5: Tap on Archive. The post will get archived.
You might be thinking: “What happens to an archived post?” Well, all archived posts go to the Archive section of your account. To view your archived posts, follow these steps:
Step 1: Go to the Profile section, and tap on the three parallel lines.
Step 2: Select Archive from the list of options.
Step 3: In the Archive section, you can see archived posts, stories, and lives. Tap on the heading at the top and choose Posts Archive to view your archived posts.
Step 4: Tap on any post to view it. To unarchive the post, tap on the ellipsis and then tap on Show on Profile.
