While Facebook has had a data portability tool for quite a few years now, it's always been curious why the social networking site hasn't rolled out a similar tool for Instagram.

Internet companies have until May 25 to comply with the GDPR.

Since 2010, Facebook has had the same feature which allows its users to download their photos, messages, clicked advertisements and a log of all their activity on their network. It is not known whether Instagram will allow downloading of data like likes, comments and captions which are shared with the posts. It's also unclear whether photos and videos will export in the full resolution of what they are uploaded or displayed in, or whether they'll be compressed.

As TechCrunch reports, there is no word yet on when the new tool will be available. Users can choose different background colors, emojis, and even selfies that have been augmented with one of Instagram's face filters - which are then displayed in pattern form.

This will enable users to take high-quality photos and videos using the Instagram app. Though users will be able to download their data, "what kind of data" is still unknown.

EOS , another virtual currency, rose more than 30 percent , according to CoinMarketcap .com, which tracks the industry. Investors can then use their newly-acquired Ethereum or Bitcoin to buy STK using one of the exchanges listed above.

This has been done to make your Instagram data tool portable and to make it as your download information tool. Well, that's going to change soon, as Instagram has said that its users will be able to download a copy of their data.

Focus gives people another reason to choose Instagram over Snapchat, and could make shooting inside the Instagram app more appealing.

Focus lets you take professional-looking portraits right from your Instagram camera.

Facebook-owned Instagram will soon allow users to download their data, in a bid to promote data privacy. Instagram has largely escaped the controversies that have bedeviled Facebook over privacy, "fake news", and election interference thanks mainly to Instagram's design as a visual-first social media app.

This is basically like the new iPhone focus tool, so it's pretty cool. Interestingly, the users can also edit their Nametags using the Editor.
