If you disabled your Instagram account because you needed an insta-break, but now want to come back, you’re in luck because you can re-enable your account and find everything as you left it. Read below on how to recover your Instagram account.
If your Instagram account was deleted…
There’s no way to reactivate it. According to Instagram´s policy, you can create a new account with the same email you used before, but you can’t use the same username.
1 Open your Instagram App on the app or on desktop
First, you have to log onto your account again. This action appears very simple, but it can be more complex than it seems.
Instagram is very strict about reactivating accounts. You must also consider that if you deactivate your account temporarily, Instagram disables it only for one week.
2 Enter your username and password
If these credentials successfully restore your disabled account, that means that your account has been recovered!
However, if this step didn’t work out and you couldn’t sign in, you will need to reset your password.
3 If you do not remember your Instagram password, follow these steps
If you forgot your Instagram password when you signed up again, follow these steps to get your password and reactivate your Instagram account.
- Click on the link ‘forgot password?‘
- Enter your username or the email address used to create your Instagram account.
- If you entered the info correctly, you will receive an email with the steps to reset your password, then log in again and reactivate your Instagram account.
