Default Instagram causes overheating on my S5

Instagram causes overheating on my Galaxy. When its i stalled and work in backround my CPU load is high and battery drain + overheating. Why? Is my phone corrupted?

What is the evidence that your phone is overheating? Your screen shot shows a temperature of 50C and an apparent peak of 70C. If you had looked at existing posts on this subject, you'd know that these temperatures are well within the normal operating range..

You need to spell out your assumptions and provide a lot more information. Do you think 50C is overheating? What temperatures do you see when transcoding a movie, gaming or some other processor intensive activity? Are you using a bunker type (very thick) case? How long does Instagram keep the processor busy after you stop using it?

Do you have any reason or evidence of corruption? Did you experience any system error messages and if so what were they, verbatim? On the basis of the limited details you posted nothing is wrong, your phone didn't overheat and you have no reason to be concerned.

This app shows 72.50C not 50. You didnt't read properly. Its hard to touch my Galaxy with that temp. When i kill Instagram working in background with Clean Master it stops overheat. No case used.

The app does not show 72.50C. It actually shows "72." and on a separate line, "50C". Making it ambiguous at best what the 72 represents. It's certainly not clear that the two lines are meant to be combined.

Regardless, you're missing the essential point again. 72.50C is also well within the normal operating range. All that temperature tells you is that your processor is under heavy load at the moment. You still haven't provided any information about how often this happens, how long it stays at the level or much of anything else.

72C is not some untenable temperature just because some third party app (that you didn't even mention in your original post) issues a caution. And that is all that is. A caution that your temperature is on the high end of normal at the moment.
