Why does not Instagram provide download option?

It is a critical question and it comes to our minds right after we find there is no download option on Instagram. Well, the reason behind it is that Instagram has very strict rules regarding copyright, and they do not want you to download pictures without anyone’s consent. However, Instagram allows you to save photos only if you want to re-post them, but you need to have permission from the original owner of that photo. It is essential that if you use someone’s photo, you give credit to the original owner and do not use someone’s photos for commercial purposes.
