How to Get Back Disabled Instagram Account
Table of content
If despite entering the correct username and password, you can not log in to your Instagram page, getting a
message saying "Your account has been disabled for violating our terms.", then what will you do?
You will definitely be worried, especially if your page is a business account.
Such an issue may happen in two ways:
1. You might have violated Instagram rules and despite Instagram warnings, you have repeated this. In this case, Instagram will close your account.
2. A number of users might have reported your page to Instagram due to rules violations, and Instagram has deactivated your page after checking the accuracy of these reports.
Many people mistake block for report. At the beginning of this article, we will discuss the differences between Instagram block and report, and then we will explain how you might be reported and what you can do to fix the problem when it occurs.
Differences between Block and Report
Report and block are two Instagram punishments for those who do not follow the rules of this popular social network. Keep in mind that being reported is very different from being blocked on Instagram, but users often refer to the two terms mistakenly. Now let's explain the differences between block and report so that you do not confuse the two.
When you see inappropriate or annoying content, you report that content or page to Instagram using the Report option and let them know about the unusual activity of that page owner. Instagram will then investigate to resolve the issue and, if the report is correct, will block the offender's account. In this case, the user's account is out of reach, they can not log in to their account at all and other users can no longer see that page.
Block is different. Instagram has
hourly limitations for activities such as following, unfollowing, commenting, liking, sending DMs,
etc., so unconventional behaviors such as following or unfollowing a lot of Instagram users in a short time, or
leaving numerous comments, etc. causes Instagram to block you (i.e. block your activity for a while).
In other words, to protect its users, Instagram finds and blocks accounts that behave like spammers. In this case, you can no longer continue the activities you did too much, but your page is open and others have access to your page content. You may even be able to do some activities that are not blocked for you.
"Block" is always a temporary situation and may only apply to certain activities on Instagram. If you are blocked, you will be out of block mode after a few hours or days and you can do all the activities on Instagram again.
According to the explanation provided, in "Block", Instagram itself identifies users who have been overly active. While in "Report", other users identify an Instagram account that publishes inappropriate, fake or copied content and report it to Instagram.
In a separate article, we talked about action block, and in this article, we only talk about being reported on Instagram. Finally, we will review the step-by-step instruction for fixing Instagram report problem.
What types of accounts are reported?
Anyone whose actions and behavior are inappropriate is likely to be reported by other Instagram users. Of course,
Instagram has set certain rules in this regard on its official site and asks its users to report those who
publish the following on their page.
Here are some of these cases ...
- An account that fakes people's Instagram identities.
If an account is created using another person's name on Instagram, posting their personal photos on that page, it will be disabled if reported by Instagram users.
- An account that forges the titles of celebrities.
Someone who makes a fake page for a famous person. Since such an account may mislead others and cause the famous person to become infamous, if it is reported to Instagram, Instagram will deactivate that account.
- An account that copies the content produced by others
Usually artists, photographers, writers or sellers face this problem that someone copies or uses their work without mentioning the name of the original work owner on Instagram. Usually in such cases, the owner of the work and his fans report the infringing account to Instagram, which leads to the deactivation of that account.
- An account that produces malicious content.
People who post pictures of physical harm such as suicide, self-harm, animal abuse and child abuse are quickly reported by other users. Malicious content also includes other items, such as illegal drug trade, threatening others, etc. Instagram asks its users to report Instagram accounts with such content. If reported, these accounts will be disabled.
- An account that publishes immoral material.
Accounts that publish immoral content, such as sexually explicit images and videos, are reported by other users without interruption. This includes immoral opinions. If reported, the offending accounts will be deactivated by Instagram.
- Someone who does irrelevant advertising.
There are many people on Instagram who advertise their product or service by leaving irrelevant comments on the post. This type of advertising usually annoys users and is usually reported as spam to Instagram, and if users report to Instagram, the offending account will be deactivated by Instagram.
A few Tips on Instagram Report
- To prevent being reported on Instagram, do not do any of the activities above.
- Inappropriate reports have no effect. Even if your page is closed for this reason, it will be recovered soon.
- You can not find out exactly who reported you.
- If you can not like or comment, you are probably blocked by Instagram and this issue has nothing to do with the report.
