Instagram a few months ago was forced to remove some of his functions in Europe, like surveys, to adapt to European regulations. Facebook said it will work to bring back these functions in the future, but the social network is now losing a new function for the same reason. In this case, this is one of its more recent functions.
Temporary messagesKnown as self-destructing posts, they hit the app last fall. Instagram is now saying goodbye to these messages to comply with the regulations in force on messaging services at European level. Users can no longer use this feature.
How to see started sessions in your Instagram account
If you want to see if someone has entered your Instagram account, you can check the sessions started in the app itself.
Say goodbye to temporary messages on Instagram
Temporary Instagram messages no longer work. When you try to enable this option, the application displays a warning that they are no longer available. The reason is the new European regulation of courier services. These rules fully affect Facebook apps, as they limit how businesses can use data from these chats.
The elimination of this function occurs at European level, users outside the EU will be able to continue using these temporary messages for the time being. At this time, it’s unclear if Facebook will make any changes with the intention that the app will have this type of post available again in the near future.
One of the doubts is whether this change will affect other apps besides Instagram. We must not forget that last fall temporary messages have also reached WhatsApp, which can be activated in any chat. It is feared that the popular messaging app will suffer the same fate and be forced to delete its temporary messages also due to these European regulations.
At the moment, it’s unclear whether or not that will happen. What is already a fact is that these temporary messages no longer work on Instagram, neither on Android nor on iOS. We hope to hear more about whether they will return in the future or not.
