Instagram is a mobile social networking service, but you can't delete your account through the app. To do this, you will need to log into your account using a desktop browser.

To disable your Instagram account, click on your profile picture in the upper right corner of the screen and tap Settings → Edit Profile. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see the option "Temporarily disable my account."
To permanently delete your Instagram profile, enter this URL into your browser address bar. On the page that opens, enter your password and choose "Permanently delete my account."
