Reinstalling Instagram - Do I need to make a backup?

Sometimes you may need to reinstall Instagram because, for example, you are switching to a new smartphone or Android or iOS smartphones are not working properly and you need to reset them to factory defaults.

The question you ask yourself as an Instagram user is, can I simply uninstall and reinstall Instagram without losing data like pictures and videos?

Or do I need to create a backup?

The answer is:

No, there is no need to create a backup when reinstalling Instagram. Because your data such as images and videos are all stored in the Instagram cloud or its servers.

This means you can easily uninstall and reinstall Instagram without losing any of your data.
