Accessing Instagram Historical Data: Review - Download, Iridescent Lane

If you toevluchthaven’t heard already, you can review and download your Instagram gegevens – the downloadable gegevens is (some of) the informatie Instagram has collected from your activities on your account. Out of curiosity, I determined to check out what exactly Instagram has on mij that I could download. Turns out… A Loterijlot.

What Informatie Instagram Has Collected About Mij

There are two options here: reviewing gegevens and downloading gegevens. I wasgoed interested particularly te the downloadable gegevens. Before downloading the files (which is what you have to do), I thought perhaps Instagram just collected what pictures I have on my profile, spil well spil what posts I’ve liked. But, oh no, it’s a little more detailed than that.

The downloaded files are cautiously categorised (well done, Insta – I love organisation to that extent) into the following:

Each category has everything recorded since I began using my Insta account (more or less).

Yep, certainly way more than I expected.

Even tho’ I’ve willingly interacted with the toneelpodium and collective all of the above, it wasgoed kleuter of creepy to view everything. There wasgoed so much of detail, it chilled mij.

It had the very first voeling/person I everzwijn followed, including the date and time right down to the last 2nd. Every single Like of mine since the beginning is recorded. Even screenshots that I’ve sent via DM were stored. And, let’s not leave behind, all the profiles, people and businesses I’ve searched for were also available for my perusal. (Every single voorwerp is recorded with the date and time.) There are two profile folders: one had my current profile picture, and the other had my profile bio.

The one thing to note about the search gegevens is that it only recorded it since my last set of searches after deleting my search history. I regularly delete my search history (it’s just that OCD side of mij).

What Informatie Instagram Has Not Collective With Mij

What’s interesting to note is that spil much spil there’s all this gegevens collected on mij, there are certain things that aren’t available for mij to download and view.

  • When/How many times I’ve opened the app
  • Whose stories I’ve viewed
  • How many people’s posts and movies I’ve viewed while scrolling
  • Which devices I’ve used to loom on
  • When people began following mij

The possibilities are endless.

After everything that has happened with Facebook recently, I have almost no doubt that Instagram (read Facebook) has this kleuter of information recorded that they’re keeping to themselves, for intents and purposes that only they know.
