We have seen a sudden popularity of the famous photo sharing service called Instagram in the past. It has been liked by many people to share the photos on Facebook, which had overtaken the organization couple of months back. I didn’t have an account on Instagram yet and with the new policy that Instagram have, I think it was a good decision.
The photos can be used even for advertisement and the organization doesn’t have to ask the users for any permission. So this means, any photo of you whether you are enjoying somewhere with your family or having lunch, can be used by a third party organization.
So if you wish to protect your sensitive information, then just backup all your photos from Instagram and delete your account before 16th January 2013. You can use Instaport tool to download and backup your Instagram photos and then visit your Edit Profile page in the Instagram to delete your account.
By the way how did you feel about this move?
