How to recover an Instagram account blocked or deactivated by mistake


Have you lost access to your Instagram account and you don’t know how to recover your Instagram account? Do you think it was a mistake? Instagram has a help service so that you can recover an account blocked or deleted by mistake.

There are times, and the last one happened to me last December in an account of an acquaintance, that Instagram closes your account and your world falls apart. What do I do now?

Well, let’s try to clarify the steps to follow to recover an Instagram account closed by mistake.

Contact Instagram to recover a deactivated Instagram account

Step 1. Contact Instagram at their help desk

Recovering your Instagram account can be an odyssey if you don’t know how to contact the Instagram help center , that is, where to start the process.

First, you have to be clear that it was not your fault that has compromised your Instagram account.

Thus, Instagram can close your account if you have done:

-Content of your photographs.


-Excess of interactions (thinks you are a robot).


-Use of inappropriate hashtags.

Buying followers.

Thus, knowing all this you have not done anything, something has happened to your account and you are not to blame.

So, the time has come to contact Instagram:

Step 2. Complete the information that Instagram asks you in the form

This second step is key for Instagram to know that you mean business. Put all the information you are capable of, to help Instagram to recover your deactivated account.

Step 3. Document that identifies that it is your personal or business account

Now we come to the third step to recover an account. Instagram will ask you to prove that you are the owner of that deactivated Instagram account.

To do this, Instagram asks you for a document that verifies that you really are, through an invoice, a tax return or a document from when you formed the company, among other documents, as an example.

Step 4. Wait for the answer

Finally, it’s time to wait. Instagram, with all the information you give it and the one it has about your account, decides if it has mistakenly deleted the account, deactivated it, or there are real reasons that have produced it.

The response from Instagram will take more or less time depending on the complexity we talked about before.
