If you were worried about whether it is possible to recover a disabled Instagram account, then don't worry anymore.

You can reactivate your Instagram account as is it was in when it was deactivated. There is a solution and we will explain everything to you right here.

First of all, you need to know if your Instagram account is deactivated or temporarily suspended. It is important to know the difference, as the resolution steps are not the same in both cases.

How to identify if your Instagram account has been deactivated?

Deactivating an Instagram account

Si your Instagram account has been deactivated, when you log in, an error message will appear to notify you that your account has been deactivated.

The error message should appear like this:

Temporary suspension of an Instagram account:

Instagram offers the option of being able to temporarily deactivate your account when you want to put our social networks on pause, for example.

In this case, either, you previously requested temporary deactivation; or, someone did it from a device where your account is logged in while you were away.

To correct this problem, you can simply reconnect from the device of your choice and your account will automatically become active again.

Now, that you are sure that your account has been deactivated, let's see the rest.

The first question that should come to your mind then is: why has my Instagram account been blocked ?

Why has my Instagram account been deactivated?

An Instagram account is most often deactivated following a violation of the terms and conditions of use of the platform.

The most common examples are posting content that does not follow the guidelines. Instagram community rules and Terms of use (eg illegal activities, hate speech, discriminatory words, violent content, nudity…).

What you should know is that the platform Instagram will never give you the exact reason for your account deactivation. You will only receive a message notifying you that your Instagram account has been deactivated for violating the terms and conditions, but it will never be stated precisely which term was violated.

In this case, you should try to remember, what were your recent activities on the platform. Thus, you will be able to understand what may have caused the deactivation, such as having published non-free or unauthorized content.

The good thing about all of this is thatit is not complicated to recover your Instagram account.

It may take up to a few days to regain access to your account, but it is not much to be able to recover all your photos, videos and memories accumulated over months or even years.

Let's see now, what is the procedure for find your Instagram account intact.

How to recover a disabled Instagram account?

There are two ways to reactivate your Instagram account by appealing the deactivation decision. You can choose the method you want.

Know that in both cases, it will be necessary to appeal. I suggest you try method 1 first, before trying method 2; but this is not an obligation.

1 - Call on the Instagram mobile application

If your Instagram account is deactivated, when you want to log in, an error message appears to notify you of the deactivation. Below this message, you can click on " LEARN MORE ».

By clicking on the "Find out more" button, you will be redirected to the options for requesting a review or calling for deactivation.

From this step, simply follow the instructions and submit your appeal, taking care to provide as much detail as possible.

2 - Submit the deactivation appeal form

You can also send your call request by clicking directly on the " Appeal form Which can be found below:

Then submit your appeal form by clicking on " Send ».

Depending on the case, you may be asked to provide proof of your identity or a selfie, as a verification step, during the deactivation review process.

How long does it take to review the appeal following the deactivation of an Instagram account?

Usually, the appeal request is processed within a from 1 to 7 days, before Instagram reactivates your account.
During this time, be sure to regularly check your mailbox associated with your Instagram account.

The internal Instagram team can send you more information about the status of your call: activated or rejected. You may also simply be asked to log into your account to see if it has been reactivated or not.

A little advice: In order to get a faster response, some people submit their proof of identity multiple times, which is against Instagram regulations. You must send your proof of identity only once and gently wait for the response, at the risk of blocking or slowing down the review process.

If by mistake you have repeatedly submitted your proof of identity, be careful not to re-submit it and continue to wait for a response.

Use the new Instagram feature "Account Status"

In the latest updates, Instgram has added a new feature that gives users more details about their reports about posts or comments, and keep them informed when one of their posts goes against Instagram community rules.

To check the status of your account:

  • Open the Instagram app.
  • Click on, or tap, the three lines at the top right of your screen.
  • Select Parameters.
  • Click, or touch Account.
  • Now select the heading Account Status.
  • Here you can view all of your account activity as well as your content delivery.

Now that you have all the keys in hand to reactivate your Instagram account ; you just have to follow the steps listed above.
