This article will let you know how to stop Instagram from saving posts to camera roll on your smartphone.

Instagram is a great app. It’s fun, it helps you connect with your friends and family, and it has a ton of cool filters. But there are some things about the app that aren’t so fun. Like the fact that Instagram saves every single post, you’ve ever made to your camera roll.

That can be a real pain if you want to keep some of those old posts hidden from prying eyes—like your ex (or even worse: future employers).

All these images you upload goes to your camera roll. Now let us look at how you can stop it from saving uploaded photos to your phone Gallery.
