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.
Can You Mass Archive Instagram Posts?
Unfortunately, you can’t mass archive Instagram posts. As of now, Instagram doesn’t have the option to archive multiple posts at once. So, if you were wondering if there is a hidden option on Instagram that lets you mass-archive your posts, there isn’t any.
This leaves us with just one tedious option– archive the posts one by one. Of course, we know you didn’t come here to read that.
So, here is a better option: Click Assistant.
Click Assistant is a simple yet sophisticated app that records your clicks and gestures (only when you allow the app) and replicates them over and over again. With this app, you can record the archiving process for a post once and let the app repeat the process for consecutive posts.
How to Mass Archive Instagram Posts
Using Click Assistant is easy once you get acquainted with it. Follow these steps carefully to archive as many posts as you want.
Step 1: Install Click Assistant – Auto Clicker from the Play Store. Simply click this link and install it directly without searching:
Step 2: Open the app once it’s installed, and tap on Start Service. You might be asked to grant the app Accessibility permissions. Go to settings if prompted and give the app permissions to perform clicks and gestures on your behalf.
