Have you ever sent an Instagram message that you regretted? Let me guess… right after you hit send you thought, “Oh God, I should not have done that. If only there were a way to take it back!” Then you proceeded to group text your lady gang and tell them how embarrassed you were while stressing over a pint of Phish Food (just me?). I’ve got good news, friend, this no longer has to be your fate. The next time you accidentally send a not-so-fabulous-and-maybe-completely-embarrassing Instagram message, you can unsend it immediately! Today, I am going to walk you through exactly how to do just that.


So you sent a message that you regret, did ya? Well, congrats – you’re a normal person. We’ve ALL sent something cringeworthy at some point (Or is it just me?).

I know you're probably freaking out right now, so I'm going to get right to it.

Here is how you can quickly unsend that message:

  1. Head to your inbox by clicking that little paper airplane in the upper right-hand corner.

  2. Head to the convo where you sent the message.

  3. Tap and hold on the message you’d like to unsend.

  4. You’ll get two options – copy and unsend. Tap unsend.
