IG Downloader adds a button to every Instagram post, Reel, and Story so you can quickly and easily download anything while browsing Instagram. The “Download All” button added to Instagram accounts lets you bulk download all their posts in one click.

NOTE: Please reload your Instagram tabs after installing to load the extension.

While browsing Instagram, just hover over a post preview and click the download button to save it. If there are multiple images/videos in the post, they’ll all be saved.

If you’re looking at a post or Reel, check next to the bookmark and share icons for the download button, or try the hotkey Ctrl + Shift + D or Cmd + Shift + D.

A story can be saved with the download button in the top right corner.

When downloading an entire Instagram account, you’ll be prompted to choose a folder. A new folder will be created inside that folder with the name of the account being downloaded. Images and videos will appear in that folder as soon as they get downloaded. For future account downloads, files with the same name in that folder will be skipped.

As of October 24, 2023, IG Downloader has fixed issues with "Could not find post" and bulk account downloads. Feel free to reach out to igdownload2023@gmail.com if you have questions.
