Our commitment to data privacy and security

We take data protection, data security, and people's privacy very seriously. Here are some of our efforts.

Our commitment in plain english.
No legalese here.

We want to make it super simple for users to understand our efforts to keep your data safe, as well as our efforts on data privacy.


We are a small team, but that doesn't mean we're not accountable for every action taken by us using your data. Every decision we make takes this into account.


We perform many types of controls periodically to ensure data privacy and security. These controls range from automated checks to prioritizing the improvement of our tools to help users exercise their right to delete their data.


We make it super simple to delete all your data. No complex page flows or questions asked.

Data privacy and security when using our Top Nine tool

We launched Top Nine in 2016, starting a huge trend that has grown exponentially every year. Every December, millions of Instagram users, influencers and celebrities use our Top Nine tool to find and share their best nine Instagram moments of the year.

We feel it's important clarify that in most cases, the only data we have about your Instagram account is whatever you chose to make public, in case you made your account public.

In certain cases, like when your account is private, we may ask you to sign in to Instagram to provide us with read-only access to your Instagram posts. This sign up process happens on Instagram.com, meaning we don't have access to perform any other action than "reading" your Instagram posts. We don't have access to any settings, messages, or any other part of your Instagram account, just the photos and videos you've posted.

Top Nine’s viral growth has caused dozens of clones to surface on the App Store. And we believe some of them are dangerous.

We know that some users unknowingly download fake clones thinking it’s our app. And they might be risking their privacy and security of their Instagram account.

Privacy and security warning when using alternatives to Top Nine

We published an important warning about Top Nine clones, explaining how to ensure they're not compromising you Instagram account.
  • On mobile apps, ensure there's a visible address bar when logging in to Instagram.
  • DO NOT fill out any "personality tests" that other tools promote to users who use their tool.
  • CreatorKit.com and TopNine.co are our only official websites, all others are clones.
