The biggest fear of any blogger is to be blocked by the administration of Instagram and lose their account forever. At the moment this happens quite often. In this case, the social network does not even give a chance to save or return photos and posts.
To avoid such a situation, you need to know not only the reasons why an account can be blocked, but also how to restore it, if it suddenly happens.
Unfortunately, the rules of Instagram change frequently, and the list of prohibited actions is getting longer each update. But the basic, gross mistakes, followed by an eternal ban, are worth knowing for every blogger. Here they are:
Often, for most infractions, Instagram will disable the account from using certain features. For example, for excessive commenting, the administration will temporarily block this function for the profile. Instagram may make such block for several hours, sometimes for several days.
If this happens, you should not react aggressively, write to technical support, or try to persistently perform the same actions. Moreover, after unlocking, you should not use this function again, otherwise Instagram will again consider it a violation and may take more serious penalties.
The administration often resets the account password to avoid hacking pages. It sends a letter to the user's email notifying them of the temporary blocking and violations. The password can be restored by the link provided in the email.
Once 3 temporary locks occur, Instagram can permanently ban the account. This is regarded as disobedience to the rules, disregard for penalties.
Once the profile accumulates a certain number of violations, Instagram deletes the page without the possibility of restoring access to it. This is called an eternal ban. What do they usually do in such cases? What actions to take, and is it worth trying to restore the page at all?
The most common way is to claim your account has been compromised, even though this is not entirely true. In addition, you can only try to unlock the profile through the official Instagram app on your mobile device. The computer in this case will not help in any way.
There is a specific algorithm for restoring the profile on the social network's technical support site. But it is worth remembering that it does not work for everyone and not in all cases. Therefore, it is not necessary to rely on it.
This is what the algorithm itself looks like:
To unlock the account Instagram may ask the owner to send several unprocessed photos that were previously published on the page. The app may also ask for a personal photo of the person with a piece of paper on which a certain code must be written.
Some bloggers who have lost their accounts turn to unblocking specialists. In most cases, professionals help restore accounts.
It is important not to violate the rules of the social network, so as not to be in danger of being blocked. Not always and not everyone succeeds in restoring access. There is no one hundred percent method that will help cope with this problem. Therefore, there is no point in taking risks in this case.
