Instagram new feature roll-on to access stories and photos


Instagram’s new rolled-on feature gives the accessibility to bring back the recently deleted stories and posts. If the deleted story has not been archived in 24 hours users can restore it if it gets deleted by mistake.

If the story or post has been archived that too can be restored within 30 days. Hackers are active on the social media platform, they access the user’s account and perform unnecessary or unusual things with the hacked account. During these hacking activities as the hackers have got accessibility to your account they can access your posts and stories too. They can delete the posts and can DM the people you are connected to.

If you have a sense that your account has been hacked this new Instagram feature will help you to access recently deleted posts and stories.

Instagram offers the proper security to users’ accounts and verifies the delete and restore operation functionality. They ask the user before restoring or removing anything from any authorized or certified Instagram account.
