Should you use an app to download Instagram photos?

If you use this app, you may know Instagram doesn’t allow users to download individual photos. Luckily, there are third-party platforms that enable you to do this. You may wonder whether these apps are safe or not.

In fact, some of these third-party Instagram downloaders may be safe to your PC or mobile devices; however, you will frequently see annoying ads while using the apps. 

Some of them can ask you to log in to your Instagram account and allow the app to access your account information, which can cause potential risks to your online account when your information is shared. Therefore, it’s safer to use an app that only needs the image’s URL to download onto your devices.
