Instagram could soon let you see just how much data it holds on you

Instagram is working on a slew of useful new features for its iOS client, if a new report is to be believed.

WABetaInfo has obtained information suggesting that Instagram is ironing the creases out a trio of new tools that will let users star individual chats, filter direct messages and export all of their account data – similar to Twitter’s Archive feature.

The outlet also noted that, as indicated in the screenshot highlighting the starred chat function, Facebook-owned Instagram is toying with the option to send stickers, in a move that comes more than five years after they first debuted on Messenger.

Best not get too excited, though. This revelation doesn’t necessarily mean that the aforementioned features will make their way to the public version anytime soon. Instagram has tested a number of new tools in the past, only to later scrap them.

We can’t help but think, however, that Instagram will hold off implementing the option to export user data until it’s able to win back some of the customers who flocked to competitor Vero after it introduced its not-so-popular revised algorithm.
