You can use Instagram data with other apps and services. It is good practice to regularly check which apps are linked. This way you can check which apps are linked to Instagram and how you can remove them.

Some third-party apps and services give you the option to connect to your Instagram account so that you can, for example, upload photos to Instagram from those apps. This also works the other way around: you can then import photos from your Instagram account to another app. Instagram gives you control over which apps and services you have allowed to connect to your Instagram account.
