It’s possible to delete your Instagram account, but it’s important to note that deleted accounts cannot be recovered or reactivated in future. 
Deleted Instagram accounts permanently lose all followers, likes, comments, and posts.
If you think you might return to Instagram, you can choose to temporarily disable your account instead of deleting it altogether.
