Negative points also take place in addition to positive aspects in the development of an
account. This social network can permanently block a profile for violations of the rules.
Why Instagram can ban you? There are many reasons for this. The algorithm by which the
administration of the social network makes decisions on blocking is unknown to anyone except the
administration itself. Nevertheless, the experience of many bloggers says that there is a
list of reasons why an account could be at risk of deletion.
10 reasons for blocking
In fact, there are many reasons why your Instagram page can be blocked. First of all, any
account must be developed exclusively according to the rules of the social network. Don't forget
about website restrictions. We recommend that you know a few gross mistakes, for which more than
one blog has been irretrievably deleted.
Rapid account development. Some users don't want to wait for subscribers and work on
developing their page, and they start using third-party services for cheating. This leads to
rapid growth in subscribers. The Instagram administration quickly suppresses such actions
and blocks the profile.
At the same time, such actions are not useful. Bots can't bring engagement to your target
audience, so there is no point in developing your page in this way. In addition, Instagram
always compares post statistics with the number of subscribers. If a blogger has a large
audience, but gets a small number of likes in posts, then Instagram will hide this profile
from other users.
Change of IP-address. If the profile was used under different IPs at different times, then
you can't get banned for this. You need to confirm by email to which the profile is linked
that the real owner has visited the page.
And if you go to your profile from different IP addresses several times in one day,
Instagram will consider these actions suspicious and may permanently delete the page from
the social network.
Purchased account. There are services that sell profitable blogs. Yes, they have already
been promoted, you can just buy them and continue to develop them further. But the Instagram
administration keeps track of IP addresses through which a large number of profiles are
created. And such accounts are blocked over time.
We recommend not buying pages, but creating and developing them yourself. Also, don't
register more than ten pages from one device. Otherwise, Instagram may take such actions
- Using someone else's photos or videos. According to the rules of the website, users are
prohibited from using photos of other people and photos taken from the Internet in their
accounts. Such profiles are blocked in 99% of cases.
- Photos of any documentation. The website doesn't allow the posting of various documents on
web. These include: driver's license, website or email addresses, passport, insurance or
certificates, account or card numbers. You are prohibited from posting such information in
form of photos and text.
- Creation of profiles not via a mobile device. At the moment there are many programs that can
automatically register a large number of pages on a website. Instagram monitors and
the use of such third-party apps. All accounts that were not created via a mobile device are
- Publishing many posts with a break of a few seconds/minutes. Sometimes users create pages
immediately start uploading a large number of photos, videos and posts there. Instagram
perceives such actions as spam and can permanently delete the profile.
We recommend that you publish posts no more than once an hour. The best tactic is one day,
- The same hashtags. The use of the same set of hashtags in each post leads to the fact that
the social network stops showing these posts in the recommended ones.
- Brand creation. You need to be careful here. Instagram requires confirmation that the
is in fact a brand profile. And documentary confirmation is required. Therefore, if you
have legal confirmation, then do not risk and not call the store a brand.
- Repetitive audience reactions. When a large number of identical comments are present under
posts, Instagram takes these actions for spam. First, the administration will temporarily
the ability for subscribers to leave comments under the posts of this profile. If the
repeats, the page will be permanently deleted.
Any suspicious activity on Instagram entails the risk of account deletion. If you violated one
and the profile was not deleted, then this doesn't mean that you can continue to do so further.
cumulative effect is triggered. When your page has been found to be suspicious several times,
Instagram will permanently delete it.
Pure and legal social media profiles are rarely blocked. But if this happened, then such an
can be easily challenged by communicating with technical support.
There is another interesting Instagram feature. If some violations were already in the account,
after the expiration of time they stopped and didn't appear again, then the blocking risks are
reduced. Therefore, when many bloggers feel the danger for their own page, they sometimes give a
«break» to the profile.
