Have you entered your Instagram account, and you have not been able to do anything because the application has blocked your access?

Keep calm and don’t worry, here we will tell you how to unblock your Instagram account if the account has been disabled.

Recover your Instagram account

If Instagram has deactivated your Instagram account, you will know it immediately as soon as you enter the app.

A message will display in a pop-up window stating that you cannot access your profile because your account has been deactivated.

Your account might be disabled temporarily or permanently.

What to do if the blocking of your Instagram account is temporary?

If Instagram deactivates your account temporarily and you think it has been unfair, you can:

➡️  Write to Instagram support and appeal this situation.

To do this, log in with your credentials on Instagram and follow the steps and on-screen instructions.

➡️  If you think you know why your account is suspended

If you haven’t complied with Instagram’s rules and understand why your account has been deactivated, you can wait for the application to lift the “sanction”.

It can be a month, several weeks … if you have the willpower not to enter Instagram, this is the easiest option.

What to do if your account has been deactivated permanently?

If the block is permanent, the situation becomes a bit more complex than in a temporary scenario.

In this case, when the pop-up message displays stating the deactivation of your Instagram account, you will see the option to contact the platform to find out more about the issue and if there is a way to appeal this decision.

If the block remains, the last possibility to recover your Instagram account is to go to this link and follow the steps:

It is a document that helps you justify that Instagram’s decision is a mistake.

2 Follow the instructions sent 

The platform will send an email with instructions to follow, and it may even ask you for certain documents: such as your personal data or a photo.

3 Wait for the response from Instagram

Instagram will let you know as soon as they decide what will happen to your account, whether your account has been unblocked or you have lost it definitely.

These are the options you have if Instagram has deactivated your account. If you still don’t know why your account has been deactivated in the first place, here we tell you a couple of reasons why it might have happened.

Why Instagram has deactivated your account

If you have Instagram and normally use it daily, you may already know why Instagram may disable your access to the account.

These are some reasons why:

You look like a bot

If you start behaving differently, for example, if you start following multiple accounts simultaneously, Instagram may think that you are not a person and may deactivate your account.

Someone has reported your account

If multiple users report your content for being duplicate, disrespectful, or because they consider that it violates the rules of Instagram, Instagram will review these complaints, and it may disable your profile.

If you sign in on multiple devices

This action, even if you haven’t done it, may lead to consider blocking your account. Instagram thinks that these are suspicious logins, and it may disable your account.

If you use pirated apps

The improper use of applications to grow on Instagram with followers or to obtain more likes on your posts can be a reason for disabling your account.

Having your Instagram account disabled can happen at any time, here is how to act if it happens to you.

If you are going to start your marketing plan on Instagram, this guide will be your first step:

      Hi Nico.

      I am afraid we don’t know how long Instagram takes to make a decision. Stay tuned to your email or app for an answer.
