Instagram Will Be Equipped With A Data Portability Tool

May 25 is approaching and any mention of a nonconformity likely to cost up to 4% of its worldwide turnover is enough to start a business. Evidence with Instagram, which announces the upcoming launch of a tool to download all of its photos, videos and published messages, a feature that in eight years of existence the platform had not found the time to implement.
Tuesday, Techcrunch reported that Instagram did not have a system for portability of data, like the functionality of the parent company Facebook to download his personal data distilled on the social network. May 25 may pose a slight concern to the photo sharing platform.

Indeed, in its article 20, the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) introduces an obligation of data portability. "  Data subjects have the right to receive their personal data which they have provided to a data controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format  ", states the regulation.

It Urges

The next day, our colleague from Techcrunch, an Instagram spokesperson is quick to explain: "  We are building a new data portability tool. You will soon be able to download a copy of what you shared on Instagram, including your photos, videos, and messages. However, it does not specify whether it will be possible to download the graph containing the social data of a user (his followers and subscriptions).
The tool will not only be available in Europe but around the world. And while this is a breakthrough in RGPD compliance, it's also good news for Instagram users who, until now, could not export or upload a published photo. However, the company does not indicate the launch date of this tool.
