How to remove the phone number from your Instagram profile from the WEB version.

To use the Instagram social network, we must create a user account in which we must provide a series of personal information such as name or phone number. Some of the information to be provided will be mandatory and some optional. However, it must be borne in mind that the more personal information we provide, the less privacy the user will possess.

When we use our phone number in the Instagram profile, any other Instagram user can easily view it. This can happen even without knowing your username or any other details about you on the platform. And what is worse, it can be found even if your phone number is not shown in their (public) profile or if your account is set to private..

Instagram is pretty clear about it in its privacy policy; That profile information you provide (including phone number) enables you to help you find yourself on the platform. Sometimes Instagram also sends annoying SMS updates.

To prevent this from happening and thus improve your privacy, the best option is to completely remove your phone number from your Instagram account. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to remove your phone from the Instagram profile from the app or from the Web version:
