Instructions on downloading Instagram stories from your account
You can download your own Instagram stories in just a few easy steps.
To access and view your own Story, as well as the story you want to keep, tap on the “Your Story” icon located in the top left-hand corner of your feed.
Afterwards, press the three little dots on the lower right hand side that say “More”. A menu of options will pop up. Out of those choices, select “Save…” and then your story will be preserved in your camera roll/photos.
You also have the option of downloading an entire day’s worth of stories into one video clip. To do this, simply tap to the end of your stories and then tap “More”, “Save…” and “Save Story”.

I discovered a few free websites that allow users to download the Stories and Highlights from other people’s accounts. So, if you want to keep up with your favorite photographers or content creators, this is a great way to do so – even if they never posted them yourself. To test it out (and avoid looking like a creeper), I used my new puppy’s account.
To download a Story or Instagram highlight, simply type in the username of the profile from which you want to download, scroll down and click on the desired content, then press “Save as”. It’s that easy. What are you waiting for, visit InstaDP now at https://instadp.info/
The website functions much like before. You type in the username of the Instagram account you want to Download from, give it a moment to load, and then save the Stories or Highlights you want to a chosen folder on your computer. The difference is that this newer website design appears more sleek and modern.
If you’re a Windows user, the safest way to download Stories from Instagram and other websites is through StoriesSaverHD. This software is easy to use, ad-free, and efficient – unlike some sites that can be embedded with malware.
You can quickly download and install the Storie tool. After you copy the URL of the story you want to save, a pop-up will show up asking you to confirm the download’s content and format. Once confirmed, your downloading process starts immediately and only takes a few seconds.
