Let’s get right into this!
How to delete all of the comments on an Instagram post
Firstly, we will explain how you can delete all the comments on one of your Instagram posts.
There are two ways you can do this.
Firstly, you need to find the post you want to delete the comments from.
You can view all of your Instagram posts on your profile.
Tap on the profile button, which is in the bottom right of the navigation on Instagram.
Then, you will be able to choose which post you want to delete the comments from, or alternatively, you can completely disable the comments.
Before you move on to the next step, tap on the post.
Now, you can either delete all of the comments, or hide them by disabling commenting.
Delete all of the comments
Once you are on the post, you need to tap on “View all comments”.
This will show you all of the comments on your post.
Next, you need to tap on the three dots which are in a horizontal row in the top right.
This will open up a menu called Comment controls.
In the menu, look for a section titled “For this post”.
In this section, there is an option called “Manage comments”, tap on it.
Now, a checkbox will appear next to each comment.
So, tap all of the comments you want to delete.
Once you have selected all the comments and you are sure you want to delete them, tap on “Delete” in the bottom left.
An option window will pop-up, and you will need to confirm your decision by tapping on “Delete comments”.
Now, all of the comments will be deleted!
Disable the comments
Instead of deleting the comments, you could alternatively disable and turn off commenting.
In order to turn off commenting, you need to be looking at the post, then tap on the three horizontal dots.
A menu will slide up, and there is an option to “Turn off commenting”.
Tap on it, and the comments will be turned off and hidden.
But, when you turn the comments on again, which is the exact same process, the comments will be visible again.
How to delete every comment you made on Instagram
Now, we will explain a few different ways on how you can delete every comment you have made on Instagram.
Delete every Instagram comment you have posted
Firstly, go to your Instagram profile by tapping on the profile button on the right hand side of the navigation bar.
Once you are on your profile, you need to tap on the three lines which are on top of each other.
This will open up a menu with many options to choose from.
You need to tap on “Your activity”. The icon looks like a clock.
On the Your activity page, you need to look for the option called “Interactions”. The icon looks like two horizontal lines. Ones with an arrow pointing to the left, and the other to the right.
Next, you will be taken to the Interactions menu and you need to tap on “Comments”. The icon looks like an empty speech bubble.
Now, you will be able to see all of the comments you have posted on Instagram.
You are able to sort & filter them as well.
In order to delete them all, you need to tap on “Select” in the top right.
Then, a checkbox appears next to each comment.
You need to tap on the checkbox to select it and repeat this until you have selected all of the comments.
Once you have selected all of the comments, you need to tap on “Delete” at the bottom of your screen.
You will need to confirm your decision to delete all of the comments by tapping “Delete”.
Remember, this cannot be un-done.
Delete your Instagram account
A more extreme option of deleting all of the comments you have made on Instagram is by deleting your account.
However, you will then not be able to use Instagram.
So, it depends how badly you want to delete all of the comments you’ve posted.
In order to delete your Instagram account, you need to go to your profile.
You can get to your profile by tapping on the profile button on the right hand side of the navigation bar.
Next, you need to tap on the three lines stacked vertically.
Then, a menu will slide up, and you need to tap on “Settings”.
Once you are viewing your settings, you need to tap on “Account”.
At the bottom of the Account menu, there is an option to “Delete account”.
Tap on it, and you will have the option to either deactivate, or delete your account.
Deactivating your account means your profile, photos, comments, and likes will be temporarily hidden until you enable your account again by logging back in.
If you are sure you want to delete your account, then tap on “Delete Account”.
You will get a confirmation window pop-up saying you can stop the deletion process if you log back in by a certain date. It’s around a month or so.
So, if you are sure, follow the steps Instagram explains to delete your account.
Now you know multiple different ways to delete all of your comments on Instagram.
