New Feature Blurs Background for Pretty Portraits — Instagram Focus

Multiple reasons have propelled Instagram in this direction. However, such a feature doesn't exist on Instagram.

In a statement to the media, Instagram said its data portability tool will allow you to "download a copy of what you've shared on Instagram, including your photos, videos, and messages".

Instagram has never allowed exporting of user data, despite being in the market for 8 years.

IPL 2018: Rajasthan Royals trump Delhi Daredevils in rain-affected game
Chasing a revised target of 71 after Royals had made 153/5 in 17.5 overs before the rain, Delhi could only managed 60/4 in reply. Ben Laughlin starred in the Royals' defence of their target, taking two wickets and conceding only seven runs in his first over.

GDPR comes into effect on 25 May, which means the coming month will probably include a flurry of announcements similar to Instagram's. That's despite Instagram now being nearly 8 years old and having over 800 million users.

Despite being around for nearly eight years now, exporting data on Instagram has always been a task. The social photo sharing platform also wants to upgrade its security features so that all the sensitive data of its users are not compromised by any means. You can not save the images you have uploaded or posted, nor is there any option to download images that you have liked. It remains to be seen if media content such as images and videos will download in their original quality or in a compressed format.

So how does Instagram manage the feat, given numerous phones it works on lack dual camera technology? "But at a high level, it allows you to download and export what you have shared on Instagram".

Japan, S.Korea agree to maintain pressure
Seoul has supported North Korea human rights resolutions adopted each year since 2003 by the UN Human Rights Council. Kono also asked that South Korea firmly implement a 2015 bilateral agreement on those referred to as comfort women.

Instagram has historically made it very hard to export your data. Meanwhile, it is quite possible that the Nametags feature will help Instagram rake in more advertising revenue. Up till now Instagram lacked data portability, however, the portal is soon going to allow that.

You can download the latest version of Instagram via the App Store or Play Store.

The move might have resulted from criticism over data portability.
