If you no longer wish to cross-post content, and you’d prefer to keep your accounts separate, it’s easy to unlink Facebook and Instagram accounts. Here’s how to do that on both desktop and mobile.
When you disconnect your accounts from each other, your accounts do not get modified or deleted. You simply lose the ability to post from one platform to the other and stop getting other shared experiences. Later, if you want, you can always resync your accounts.
