Nice to meet you, *****!
Please describe your request with as many details as possible for me to get the whole picture of the situation.

My Instagram has completely shut down from my side. I can log in but it won’t load my messages, bio, followers, or news feed, I can’t post anything, or view settings, the account has just black out. From other peoples account viewing mine everything looks fine. I have deleted the app many times. Restarted my phone many times and erased my phone many times. I can’t log in on other people’s phones nor on the internet browser.


Have you used a third party app that let's you see who unfollowed your or etc.?

Customer Replay

No I’m trying to view my normal profile

What I meant was did you use any external programms on your account?

Customer Replay


Have you checked your email for an email from Instagram?

Customer Replay

yes I’ve emailed them twice but I’ve received no response

Did you initially get an email from them?

But if my profile was removed then would others still be able to view my account?
My account from other people’s account looks completely fine
but from my side it’s blacked out and i can view anything

Please try to fill in the form and let's see what it says.
Also I would recommend you to try and access your account from a different network and device.

Customer Replay

It won’t let me submit the form because my Instagram account is active


Customer Replay

i have and it still will not work

You account has been temporarily disabled.

Customer Replay

When I log in it just has an icon come up that says we’re sorry something went wrong please try again

That means it's disabled.

Customer Replay


The disabled part can be up to 7 days.
It's been disabled for the reasons only Instagram would know.

Customer Replay

okay so do I just keep contacting them?

The thing is, *****.
They do not have any form of live support.
Not emails, not chats, nothing.
They will never respond.
So there’s nothing I can really do
Currently you can only wait.

Customer Replay

I’m not sure why it would’ve been disabled as it was working fine yesterday morning I haven’t posted anything for it to be disabled
Thank you for helping

They are doing it randomly.
I have no clue as well why this is happening.
Is there anything else I can do for you today?

Customer Replay

No that’s all thank you
