"You'll soon be able to download a copy of what you've shared on Instagram, including your photos, videos and messages", an Instagram spokesperson told TechCrunch.
Instagram on Tuesday introduced a new Focus camera feature for both photos and video that takes clear pictures of people in the foreground while softly blurring the background.
The details of this feature are yet to be finalized and Instagram did not go into any detail at the moment. Quoting a book written by an ex- Facebook employee, the report added that in the 2015, Instagram started facing tough competition from rival Snapchat. There is also the question of quality of the photos and videos. There is also no information on whether all data will be retrievable or not. That would be a win for users since these apps are sometimes run by unscrupulous developers who could misuse your content or the Instagram login credentials you need to use them. While the new tool will comply with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), it would also double as a locally-stored backup of the feeds. The disclosure comes amid worldwide concerns about the privacy of users' data on social media sites and the type and amount of data that companies retain.
Now soon this Instagram policy will be changing for the better or, so it seems.
Instagram, which has some 800 million users worldwide, did not say when it expects to launch the tool.
