Similarly, Instagram stories will also stay in the Recently Deleted folder but only for 24 days. This is because the stores don’t stay on the board for that long. Except for the stories, everything will stay in the folder for a maximum of 30 days. This will allow the Instagrammers to restore any post they have deleted mistakenly.

Explanation By Instagram

Now, for the first time, you can review and restore deleted content in the Instagram app. […] Photos, videos, reels, IGTV videos, and stories you choose to delete are removed from your account immediately and moved to the Recently Deleted folder.

We know hackers sometimes delete content when they gain access to an account, and until now people had no way of easily getting their photos and videos back.

This is the permanent solution from the hacking point of view. Instagrammers can delete the post from the Recently Deleted folder as well. Therefore, if hackers badly wanted to destroy then they can do this as well.

How To Access Recently Deleted Folder

Instagrammers can easily access their recently deleted folder by following these simple steps:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Then tap on Account
  3. From there you can see the Recently Deleted Folder

From there you can restore any IG post that you have erased. But to use this feature, your Instagram app must be up-to-date.
