How do I recover or delete a deceased person's Instagram account?

During the loss of a loved oneWe put all our heart to make a beautiful ceremony in his memory, as well as all our energy to manage the physical funeral, but we do not always think of his "digital death. What about an account like Instagram?

Nowadays, for most people, social networks are part of their daily life. Each person even has at least two different ones. Almost everyone is active in one way or another; whether it is by posting good momentsThey do this by commenting on the publications of their friends and family, or by surfing and liking publications for entertainment.

Whatever our presence on these networks, it is important not to leave it unattended when we or a loved one dies.

In a legal framework, the 2016 Law for a Digital Republic, recognized and clarified the right for individuals, or failing that, their heirs, to organize the fate of personal data post mortem.

How can we manage the Instagram account of a recently deceased loved one? Should we instead keep your account and therefore its memories or should we delete the account for more personal mourning?

Turn the deceased's account into a memorial account

⚠️ For turn a deceased person's Instagram account into a memorial accountYou need to connect to the application from an existing account. 

At Instagram, turning an account into a memorial account is called the "Memorialization.

In fact, you can make a request to Instagram to transform the deceased's account into a memorial account. For its part, Instagram ensures that the account no longer appears in suggestions, for example, or anywhere else, in order not to confuse the family and friends of the deceased. All photos, videos and comments will remain visible. Please note that from this point onwards, the account can no longer be modified.

Once the account has been turned into a memorial account, it will no longer be possible to log into it and it will say "Remembering" right next to the name of the deceased.

To do this, you must contact Instagram and send them proof of death. Your loved one may have indicated that they would like their account deleted upon their death, in which case the request will be denied.

On the other hand, Instagram still does not give any access to a third party's account, even if they are family and deceased, according to its rules.
