Ask the Other Person of Whose Instagram Messages You’d Like to Recover

So, let’s say I have deleted Instagram messages of one of my friends ‘Ashish.’ I don’t have his chats on my Instagram account. But he does. So, what I can do is – reach out to Ashish and ask him to help me recover those messages. While that other person can’t help you fully recover the messages, what he/she can do for you – is help you find the exact information you need by scrolling through the messages – he/she can send you screenshots of the chats to help you gain your hands on information you want to.
Request Instagram Data Download
Another way (smart way) is to recover deleted Instagram messages is by requesting an Instagram data download.
How to do it – it’s simple.
However, it may take up to 14 days to get your hands on the chats. Follow these exact steps to request an Instagram data download.
Step I – Launch Instagram on your mobile phone. Log in to your account and head over to your profile.
Step II – When you’re on your Instagram profile, click on the three-vertical lines in the top right corner. As you click on it, you’ll see numerous options, of which you need to click on “Your activity.”
Step III – Under “My Activity,” click on “Download your information” at the bottom of the list. Add the email you’d like to get your data on and in the next step, Instagram will ask you to verify your request by entering and submitting your Instagram password. Do that and Instagram will collect all the data for you – and send all of it to your email within 14 days.
