Digital Forensics and Social Media: Instagram “Stories”

Do you save your #instagram stories to your device before you post them? If you’re like most people, you don’t.

Where do Instagram “Story” posts go after they have expired?

The issue came up the other day when we needed to answer an inquiry about using our forensic tools and software to “recover” a video posted as an Instagram story.

Unfortunately, it can’t be done. If the story is posted without selecting the option to save it to your device, it’s gone after its time expires and it is removed from your story.
