Instagram has rolled out a set of new features to make it easier for users to remove posts, comments and other activity from the platform as part of its Safer Internet Day initiatives. With new account controls unveiled by the Meta-owned photo-sharing app, users can now delete comments and posts in bulk, review past interactions on their account, and search for content by date. These features are accessible from a new section on a user’s profile called Your activity. Instagram rolled out the Take a Break feature earlier this month.
Instagram users will now be able to bulk delete or archive all their content including posts, stories, IGTV and reels, as well as their interactions such as comments, likes, story sticker reactions, etc. . Additionally, users will also be able to filter their content and interactions by date and search for past comments, likes and story replies from specific date ranges in the Your Activity section.
We’re rolling out “Your Activity”, a new experience for users to see and manage their IG activity in one place. People can bulk manage (delete, archive) their content (posts, stories, IGTV and Reels), their interactions (comments, likes, reactions to story stickers, etc.) and more.

The current rollout also allows users to find recently archived or deleted content, view search history, view the links you’ve visited and how long you’ve been on the platform, and upload your information. These features save you from having to manually scroll through each post to take an action.
To access Your activitygo to your profile and tap the menu button in the top right corner, where you will see the option.
Instagram has been testing the feature since late last year. According to the photo-sharing app, the new features are part of initiatives it has taken to keep users and their accounts safe and give users more control over their activities.
Earlier this month, Instagram rolled out the Take a Break feature. The feature allows users to set up reminders to pause scrolling after a certain amount of time and can be optionally enabled by all service users. Take a Break will join Instagram’s existing Daily Limit feature which allows users to set a limit on how much time they want to spend on the app daily.
