Backup Instagram accounts


I want to backup some IG accounts just in case of loss.
Currently thinking about backing everything up to a Jarvee campaign using repost tool.

Is there a better way?


There were tools that download all pictures + captions for you. But I can’t remember what those were called… If you Google it, should be fairly easy to find. Let me know if you find it.


Backup as in what mate? Jarvee does backups of all the data you need.


Backup images, comments, DMs, stories, everything.
Jarvee backs up settings but not content from an existing IG account unless I have missed something.

The 3rd party tools have gone a bit quiet after IG launched a manual backup tool (to comply with data regulations). IG backup tool is good except it has to be done manually which is not great. It’s super comprehensive though and backs-up everything.

4K Stogram looks like the only good automatic solution and for £9.54 it’s not bad money.
Downloads all posts, stories and captions.
Does not download DMs, Saved posts & comments. Which for many people is their IG contact list!

Can’t find any other workable solutions that don’t involve spending hours in Python (not my strength).


Didn’t know one should backup the IG account… What for? In case it gets banned?


Banned or hacked and content deleted.

Backup everything and on a schedule is good business sense.
I run a RAID1 NAS & backup to google cloud for all business data.
Instagram is my main marketing tool so I would be crazy not to have all content backed up.
