Instagram to Allow Users to Download Their Data like Facebook

After the data privacy scandal of Facebook that rocked the whole world last month, Instagram now wants to allow all its users to download all the data that they have shared through the medium. The social photo sharing platform also wants to upgrade its security features so that all the sensitive data of its users are not compromised by any means.

As per a report by TechCrunch, Instagram is presently working on a new data recovery tool that would allow the users to download a copy of all the data that they have shared on the platform that includes, messages, photos, and videos.

This new tool when implemented will allow the users to take a copy of the data and shift to another photo sharing platform seamlessly. The tool is quite similar to “Download Your Information” tool that is currently available on Facebook. It is also reported that the new tool will comply with all the regulations of European Union’s Data Protection Regulation (EUDPR) authority.

The Cupertino based tech giant Apple is also reportedly working on a new Apple ID tool that will allow the users to take a backup of their personal information. Apart from that, the tool will also allow the users to delete any data they want that is stored on Apple’s servers.

According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple wants to introduce this tool in order to abide by all the rules of the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulations that will come into effect on May 25, 2018.

The most popular social media platform Facebook has also announced recently that it is going to shut down its Partner Category products very soon. The social media giant said that this new move will help to increase the data security of the users and will prevent misuse.

The announcement comes after Cambridge Analytica revealed that Facebook collects user information without the consent of its users. Facebook now wants to gain its faith back by introducing some stringent security features for all the users.
