Did you accidentally archive an Instagram post of yours? Wondering how to get it back? You have come to the right place. In this post, we will tell you how to undo archive for the Instagram posts on Android and iPhone.
Archive is the first option in the menu that pops up when you tap the three-dot menu icon beside any individual post. It is possible for a user to unintentionally tap the Archive option.
Once they do it, the photo is removed from the profile and it isn’t visible to anyone. It kind of goes into hiding and it will only come back if you release it from the Archive prison.
To undo archive for normal posts, tap the label Stories Archive and select Posts Archive from the drop-down menu.
You will find all your archived posts here. To reverse archive or to show a post again on your profile, tap the post and then tap the three-dot menu at the top-right corner. Select Show on Profile from the options the pop-up option.
Similarly, repeat the steps for other posts that you want to unarchive on Instagram.
Bonus Tip: How to Save Instagram Story Posts to Your Phone
In the Archive Story section, tap the individual Story post that you want to save in your phone. Then, hit the three-dot menu present at the bottom-right corner and select Save Photo/Video from the options. The photo will be saved in your phone gallery.
