New Instagram tool will let you download your data

April 12 11:31 2018

This will enable users to take high-quality photos and videos using the Instagram app. Instagram now has more than 800 million monthly users, a base that skews younger than Facebook.

Rumours had been circulating for some time about a “portrait mode” buried in the depths of Instagram’s code before the company officially launched public trials of the feature last month.

The Cupertino based tech giant Apple is also reportedly working on a new Apple ID tool that will allow the users to take a backup of their personal information.

But a tool to simply save and download uncompressed full-resolution images and videos from your account would be a valuable tool regardless. Meanwhile, Facebook had introduced this functionality in 2010. Meanwhile, it remains unclear why users will want to go through the process of downloading their Instagram data. It is not known whether Instagram will allow downloading of data like likes, comments and captions which are shared with the posts. There is also the question of quality of the photos and videos. The feature can be seen in the Instagram’s Stories as well as Direct format. BGR India has reached out to Instagram to know more about the tool.

As of now, the new feature is limited to users who are running the latest version of the app. Interestingly, the users can also edit their Nametags using the Editor. And unlike other apps, you can’t even save the images you’ve shared. An Instagram rep confirmed the Nametags test.

Another reason behind this move of Instagram is new law passed by the European Union to regulate the data security.

Now soon this Instagram policy will be changing for the better or, so it seems. This announcement comes amid the ongoing data privacy scandal involving social media platform, Facebook, and Cambridge Analytica.

Nametags will have the user’s Instagram username front and center.

The new feature is located on top of the user profile.
