App to delete all photos from Instagram
Instagram, by default, does not allow you to mass delete all the photos uploaded within its platform; however, you can succeed in your intent through the use of an application for mobile devices. It is, however, about unofficial applications, which take advantage of the Instagram API and may no longer function correctly at any time.
Cleaner for Instagram (Android)
One of the first applications I want to advise you to use is called Cleaner for Instagram, and is agolable for free on Android. This has a limitation of 50 actions that can be performed in total (so you can delete a maximum of 50 photos), after which, you must purchase the paid version to continue using it.
If you are interested, you can download it via the Play Store, by pressing the buttons Install and Accept. At the end of the download, start the application, by tapping on its icon, log in with your Instagram account data and then press the button Agree to accept the terms and conditions of the service.

Then tap the button with the lightning bolt symbol, then on the voice Delete and finally on the wording Start now. Once the upload is complete, all the photos you have selected will be deleted.
Mass Delete for Instagram (iOS)
On devices iOS I recommend you to use the application Mass Delete for Instagram, by downloading it from this link of the App Store. This free application allows you to delete Instagram photos en masse, presenting practically the same features as the previously mentioned Android app. The main difference is the absence of advertising banners and the fact that the actions that can be performed are limited to 25; for unlimited use it is necessary to purchase the version For (5,49 euro).
To use this application, once downloaded, you need to log in with your Instagram account data and then tap the button Login. If an acceptance window for receiving notifications appears, press the voice Allow. Once logged in, click on the item Agree and then tap the button Media, located in the bottom bar.
Now, to mass select all photos, press the button with the √ symbol at the top e, from the drop-down menu you see on the screen, tap on the wording Select All. Now press the button with the symbol of sharing (a quadrato with the freccia verso l'alto) and then select the item Delete; finally press on Delete the confirmation notice that appears on the screen to confirm the operation.
If the apps mentioned above didn't fully satisfy you, here is a list of other apps that, agolable for both Android and iOS, will allow you to delete Instagram photos in bulk.
- Mass Unfollow for Instagram (Android) - is an application that allows you to carry out the mass deletion of multiple multimedia elements. It is free but has somewhat invasive banner ads. These can be removed with the purchase of the version For, a monthly subscription that also allows its unlimited use.
- InstaCleaner (iOS) - is an application exactly identical to Mass Delete for Instagram, both in terms of functionality and its user interface. You can use it for free to mass delete 25 photos; after which it is necessary, also in this case, to purchase the version For.
