Instagram, the most popular mobile photo-sharing app, has more than 700 million users all over the world. But for Instagram Direct, people may not be familiar with it. Well, Direct Message or DM is a private messaging feature for Instagram launched in December 2013. It lets you send photos, videos or just plain text messages to anyone you’re following. Instagram Direct Message feature is useful if you have a lot of followers and need to share specific information with specific people. If you are an Instagram user who use its Direct Message often, but delete your important Instagram DM by mistake or due to some other reason, you’re in the right place. In this topic, we are set to discuss this issue: “How can I recover deleted Instagram direct messages?” If you are in the same situation, just read on and find the solution to recover deleted Instagram Direct Messages on iPhone or Android phone.


Part 1. Retrieve Instagram Messages from User Whom You’ve Sent

When you delete Direct Messages on Instagram, you have only deleted the chat or messages from your own side then they are still available on other user’s Instagram to whom you have sent it. So the easiest way to recover deleted Instagram DM is to ask that person to send you the chats or messages if they were not deleted from their account.

Part 2. Access Your Messages on Instagram via Facebook

If the Instagram messages have been wiped away from that person whom you have sent, the above method will not work for you. Don’t worry if you have connected your Facebook and Instagram account with each other. You can access and go through your Facebook’s inbox to check out and manage your Instagram messages easily.

Part 3. Recover Deleted Instagram Messages Online

This method entails the usage of an online Instagram Message Recovery, which is said to be developed by a previous Instagram employee. It allows you to recover deleted Instagram direct messages online by logging into your Instagram account. Below are the steps:

  1. Go to the Instagram Message Recovery online site, and enter your Instagram username or Profile URL.
  2. After logging into your Instagram account, tap on “Recover Messages” to begin the recovery process.
  3. Finish the human verification to prove that you are indeed a human being, then you can recover deleted Instagram messages.
