Instagram has a new feature that allows you to restore recently deleted posts. How cool! The new feature acts like the recycle bin folder on your PC or the Trash folder on your email. When you delete an Instagram post and wish to restore it, you can, by accessing a specific folder in your Instagram account.

The new Recently Deleted feature on Instagram will allow you to recover posts, reels, and IGTV videos that have been deleted within 30 days. This means that posts that have been deleted within 30 days will be stored in a Recently deleted folder within your Instagram account. In a previous related post, we discussed how to recover deleted photos and images on Android.
