A friend of mine asked me to help her delete her Instagram account. It should have been simple enough, but in that case I would not open this thread. Anyway, after a couple of failed attempts, we turned to Google and it gave us this page: https://help.instagram.com/370452623149242 containing the link to the page where you actually delete your account: https://instagram.com/accounts/remove/request/permanent/ A couple of clicks and one additional password entry and... we get to a blank page. We tried different devices and browsers and, the best thing I could get was this error page in Opera: Error 500 is the generic internal server error code (other 5xx codes are more specific). Googling "delete instagram account http error 500" produces results that are either dealing with the basic instructions for deleting an Instagram account, or resolving error 500 issues, but not in relation to our issue. Does anyone have a suggestion to what should we do?
