To streamline erasing the past, Instagram allows you to manage all of the content and interactions on your profile. That means you can bulk delete Instagram posts, comments, and more.

If you have posts, comments, or anything else you don’t want to be kept on the permanent record, Instagram’s bulk manage feature is the ideal cleanup tool. At this stage, the process only works on the mobile app, so desktop users are stuck managing content the hard way.

For mobile users, erasing the past is as simple as selecting the items you want to remove and choosing to either delete or archive. Let’s discuss how you can bulk manage content on Instagram.
