To recover deleted posts, go to Settings > Account > Recently Deleted. Posts in this folder will be automatically deleted after 30 days with the exception of stories, which disappear after 24 hours.

According to Engadget.com, it’s also an additional safeguard against hackers who frequently target Instagram accounts. People whose accounts are hacked often have all of their posts removed before they can regain access, which can be a devastating loss for those who rely on their Instagram presence for their business or to keep track of family photos.
