If you are looking for some assistance in deleting a comment on Instagram, then you can rest on this page. In this post, I would be explaining How to Delete a Comment on Instagram.

When to Delete Comments in Instagram

We all know that comments can be published on posts, reels, or videos on Instagram. We see the majority of the comments on posts and reels.

There are two instances when the need of deleting a comment comes into play.

  1. On our Posts: The first instance is on our posts itself. There are instances when other users spams the comments area with irrelevant comments and we dont want that. hence, in this case, we can filter out the comments and delete the irrelevant and unnecessary comments.

We also have to delete the comments when we are replying to the comments of other users on our posts.

2. On Other’s Posts: We frequently keep commenting on the posts and reels of other users and there are some instances when we comment on some typo (typing mistakes). This is where we can remove the comments by deleting them permanently.

The steps for deleting an Instagram comment are almost the same for our posts as well as on others’ posts.

We would list the steps for mobile devices and Pc’s differently so that you can have a clear view about the same.

Important Note: 
*You can delete any comments whether published by other users or by yourslef on your posts.
*But you can only delete the comment done by you on other's posts.
