Instagram has a very easy method for requesting the removal of a deceased person’s profile. Since it is owned by Facebook, it’s a very similar process to memorializing a Facebook profile.
All you have to do is go to this URL and fill out the form with the following information:
- Your full name
- Your email address
- Full name of the deceased
- Username of the deceased person’s account
- Link to their account
- Date of their passing
- Documentation (Death certificate, birth certificate, or proof of authority)
- Any additional information
Once you click Send, expect to receive a follow up email to finalize the removal of the account.
