Instagram also explained how it has added protections against hackers who may delete your posts. “We know hackers sometimes delete content when they gain access to an account, and until now people had no way of easily getting their photos and videos back,” Instagram said.

Instagram users will be required to verify that they are the rightful account holder before restoring a deleted post. According to The Verge, users will have to verify through text or email to confirm that it is indeed their account.
