Have you ended the relationship with your boyfriend and decide to delete the photos or messages exchanged together on Instagram? Well, know that those images will not disappear permanently, or at least that was what happened before a security developer noticed this bug on the famous social platform.
The facts date back to last October, when after having deleted a photograph of him and having decided to use the "Download data" function launched in 2018, the security researcher Saugat Pokharel found that among the files contained in the archive there were also images or conversations deleted a year earlier.
It is not uncommon for companies to store newly deleted data for some time. Instagram said it takes about 90 days to completely remove the deleted from the system, although in this case something would seem to have gone really wrong.
The bug was reported in October 2019, but its resolution only came at the beginning of the month. As reported by TechcrunchAdditionally, the researcher received a $ 6,000 reward from Instagram for identifying and reporting the security issue.
The researcher reported an issue where someone's deleted Instagram images and messages would be included in a copy of their information if they used our Instagram Data Download tool. We fixed the problem and didn't see any evidence of abuse. We thank the researcher for reporting this issue to us.
