[SOLVED] Instagram Banned My Account Before I Posted A Single Instagram Post – Here’s What I Did To Fix It


Tuesday 6th of February 2024

this has happened to me 2 times now. the first one they never got back to me.. now it happened again..

instead of just banning you for no reason, why don't they just request this information up front?? I have my domain receipt, I have my DBA form for my business and I have my sales tax ID number from the state to prove I am who I claim to be, but instead.. a couple days after creating my account.. banned... without ever posting anything!

Unable to solve the issue...

I never really intended to use Instagram, but was convinced that it would help publicize my hobby/business (decals for model car collectors). The account was created, and as it was late I decided to start posting the following morning. Then boom, my account had been banned! I appealed the decision but never made it to the selfie part - I entered the security codes received by emails, then cellphone (though reluctant to give them my phone number, well in the end I did). EIGHT MINUTES LATER, I've received this email:

"Hi alodecals,

We reviewed your account and found that it still doesn’t follow our Community Guidelines. As a result, your account has been permanently disabled.

Learn how our Community Guidelines help keep the Instagram community an authentic and respectful place for people to express themselves."

Maybe they should be the ones to learn respect toward their clients by actually reviewing appeals, rather than just using stupid AI at every step...

My instagram account is banned in india.. how to unban my account ?


Wednesday 8th of March 2023

Experiencing the same thing right now. I’ve recently started trying to have a life. That means creating social media, learning passwords, getting a VON and putting it on any tech I use or have, and figuring out how to use apps I’ve never had or used infrequently On Top Of being terrified of being stalked by my former RCMP protected abuser. It’s getting easier for them, and it seems that the law doesn’t want to keep up. Access to courts that through Covid could be done via Zooms, are now back to in person only, leaving those of us who are afraid to be out in public spaces without access to the law, or benefit from it. Which brings me back to “You’re Banned” after I hit the Create Account button on my very first Instagram account. This is unduly stressful for me. It needs to be challenged and changed, imo. The fear that before I ever existed someone else was already using my face / name/ identity to get me into trouble is a reality I can’t figure out how to survive, one I have been scarred by already.

This isn’t just an inconvenience, it’s retraumatizing.

Who’s been pretending to be me? How is sending a pic of myself with codes any different from what someone pretending to be me & stealing me From Me, already did? How is this going to correct the issue? How does this give Me Back To Me?! Anyone could do this again, or make some false accusations or… Anything. Then I face this nightmare again?

Hi, can someone tell me if this really comes from Facebook?

I recently submitted a form to Instagram because my account got disabled, but I think I did it through Facebook. I can’t remember that well and I got an email saying that I need to send a photo of me holding an ID to prove who I am.

This is the email that came from Facebook. Does anyone know if it does come from them?
