Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world, mainly because it lets users share photographs on their feed for others to see and get admired. However, the platform can get addictive very soon and you might want to deactivate your Instagram account for various reasons.
If you do this, you might want to reactivate your account at some point, and thankfully, doing so is a breeze. In case you are done with the break, you can reactivate your Instagram account and pick up from where you left off. However, bear in mind that this only works with a deactivated Instagram account. In case you’ve deleted your Instagram account, you can’t reactivate the same account and have to create a new one.
