We currently support Instagram as a service for Redact. Mass remove your DMs in Instagram with Redact.
You can select one or more conversations in your Instagram for Redact to delete. Clicking the
Select All checkbox will select every displayed user. Clicking the
Reset link will revert all the actions to the default state. Typing a username in the search input field will sort the list according to your input.
Deletion can be specified by
Start Date (Only delete after this date) or
End Date (Only delete before this date). When you press the calendar icon, a calendar will appear. By default, it’ll take you to the current date, but you can easily change this. You can click the title at the top to select from a list of months, or click it twice to select from a list of nearby years. Alternatively, you could click the left and right arrows to skip around to adjacent months. When you have the correct month and year, you just click the day and you’re done. If you want to start over, just tap the Reset in red text.
To bulk delete every DMs on your Instagram account, just skip the form, go straight to
Deletion Mode, and click
Start Deleting. Take note that content deletion is irreversible. This is recommended if you want to have a fresh Instagram DMs in account rather than making a new one. To iterate we only support DMs for now.
