This is set up by default on Instagram, and it surely can come across as annoying, especially if you’re posting from your Camera Roll.
As amazing as Instagram is, some features that are set as default setting are completely unnecessary, and this one might be one of them.
Luckily, this is an option that can be easily turned off, and you can get back to having a neat Camera Roll, with no double-photos stored that you’ll need to remove manually.
Therefore, if you’re feeling annoyed by all posts saving to your Camera Roll, and wish to have this feature turned off, you’re in the right place. Dive into the steps below, we created a step-by-step detailed guide.
Back in 2020, Instagram’s developers implemented changes in the app, one of them being turning off automatic saving of all your posts.
However, before we get into the steps of stopping Instagram from saving all your posts, bear in mind that turning this feature off does not remove already existing Instagram posts that have been saved to your Camera Roll.
There are two ways to post photos on Instagram - you can either take pictures with your native phone camera, and attach the photo to Instagram to edit the photo additionally, or you can open the built-in camera feature on Instagram, and take a photo directly on the app, and post it after you’re done.
After you finish these steps, when you post on Instagram, you won’t have the photos saved to your Camera Roll, unless you have it set up accordingly in your Instagram settings.
Note: With some of Instagram’s latest updates, the feature to choose to save videos, but no photos, and vice versa is only available for Android users, while iOS users can only choose whether they want the Instagram posts to be saved in general.
