Open the Instagram App

To delete a chat in Instagram, first open the app. Once you are in the app, open the chat you want to delete.

Make sure you understand chat etiquette and safety. If the conversation is sensitive, you can delete it right away. If not, just make sure you have a backup of the conversation before deleting it.

Next, simply tap and hold on the chat you want to delete. You will be presented with options to delete the chat or delete for both of you. After you decide, you can click the delete button.

The chat will now be removed from your Instagram app.

Access the Chat

Accessing the chat is easy! To ensure message safety and chat security, follow these simple steps:

  1. Open the Instagram app.
  2. Tap the profile icon located in the bottom right corner.
  3. Tap the Chat icon located in the top right corner of the profile page.

Once in the chat page, you’ll be able to access any of your chats and delete them as needed. To delete a chat, simply click on the chat and hold down until a menu appears. Then, select the delete option and confirm your selection. Doing this will delete the chat completely.

Keep your message safety and chat security in mind to ensure a safe and secure experience.

To delete a chat, use the settings icon to open the chat settings. Here you can choose to archive messages or delete the conversation entirely. Make sure you’re confident and empowered to take action, hovering the mouse and clicking the settings. Then focus on tapping the icon and selecting the delete option, finishing by confirming your delete.

Select ‘Delete Chat’

Choose ‘Delete Chat’ to permanently remove the conversation from your Insta account. To do this, open the chat settings and select the ‘Delete Chat’ option.

This will delete the entire conversation, regardless of its message size. If you’d like to block the user too, you can do so within the settings.

Once you’ve selected ‘Delete Chat’, the conversation will be gone forever, leaving no trace. You can also delete individual messages before deleting the entire chat, depending on the situation.

Remember that deleting a chat cannot be undone, so take caution before you click ‘Delete Chat’.

Confirm Deletion

Once you’re sure you want to delete the chat, confirm the deletion by clicking ‘Yes’. This will permanently delete the chat and all of its contents, without the possibility of reversing the deletion.

However, if you change your mind, you can still delete the chat by selecting ‘Cancel’ instead of ‘Yes’, and the chat will remain intact.

Be sure to double-check that you want the chat to be deleted before confirming, as it is not possible to recover the chat after you have deleted it.


You can easily delete your Instagram chats. Just open the app and access the chat. Then, open the chat settings and select ‘Delete Chat’. Confirm the deletion and you’re all set.

No need to worry about your chats lingering around – you can delete them quickly and easily whenever you want. So go ahead and delete those chats – you’ll be glad you did.
