How to Unarchive a Post on Instagram in 4 Steps

Posted on

As an Instagram user, you must have come across something called the archive feature.

The archive is an Instagram feature to save Instagram posts that were originally uploaded publicly into posts that can only be seen by the user privately without deleting the post from Instagram so that it can be returned in the future.

So if you see an old post that may be irrelevant and want to be removed, you have two choices, namely to delete or archive the post. If deleted, the post is lost and cannot be returned, while if it is archived, the post is lost, but it is stored privately and can be returned at a later date.

But usually some users usually often accidentally press the archive button and as a result, the photos or videos that we uploaded earlier disappear.
