Recently there has been a lot of complaints regarding Instagram closing accounts for no reason. Most of these accounts haven’t done anything wrong and are playing by Instagram rules, but still, when they try to login to their account, they’re not given access. They haven’t received any warning or notice of closure for the account.
Some are able to recover their accounts through contact support or other means, but the majority of people haven’t succeeded. It’s really frustrating after spending a lot of time posting content and building the audience, but suddenly they can’t access the account.
The sad news is that business accounts and accounts with massive followers are the ones affected by the sudden closure of the Instagram account. In this article, we’ll share some possible solutions that can help anyone recover their deleted Instagram account, the steps we’re going to outline will only work if you haven’t violated Instagram’s terms of service.
In the end, if you tried all the possible solutions and didn’t work, you have to contact the Instagram support team for manual review, and during this time they’ll review your account activities by checking all your content and messages to confirm you’ve not violated their terms of service.
Let’s start by explaining some of the reasons why Instagram delete accounts with no prior notice.
Why Instagram Delete Accounts?
This is one of the reasons that will cause Instagram to delete your account for no reason. As mentioned earlier, the most affected accounts are businesses that have spent a lot of time building connections, comments, likes and posts on their account. A lot of these accounts are automating their promotion tasks, and they don’t control the use of such tools, they just let their pc run to schedule posts consistently. With the new algorithm they have in place, they’re able to detect apps performing any task on Instagram. Using apps and software on your Instagram account comes with a lot of risks; it is better not to use them at all.
If you don’t have the time to engage with your audience you can hire a virtual assistant to do the job, and if possible you want them to use the same PC and IP address you’re using, you should train them on how to operate your account safely without getting banned.
Signing Up From Multiple Devices
This is another reason that can cause account deletion fast. You need to stick to one device for accessing Instagram account, or you can use a few devices only if you’ll be using the same IP address. Otherwise, you’re placing your account at the risk of closure.
When you’re travelling always ensure your devices are with you in case you want to post content, don’t access your Instagram account from internet cafes, it might be possible their IP address has been banned and when you log in to your account, you’ll be affected.
Adding Fake Followers
Most business accounts and celebrity accounts are fond of adding fake followers to their account in order to attract more audience. They believe the more followers they have, the more people will follow them, they’ll be considered as public figures for gathering such a massive audience.
Recently Instagram has closed a lot of celebrity accounts with fake followers. Fake followers are non-active Instagram accounts used to follow other accounts. Some create thousands to millions of accounts just for this purpose, but Instagram have come up with a way of finding that out, last month they’ve been hunting accounts with fake followers and they’re being deleted instantly and in some cases deletion of the account.
If you want to attract followers you should promote your profile through different channels, and you can promote on your blog, YouTube channels, you can pay other webmasters to promote your profile the right way without getting banned.
Using Multiple Promotion Services
There is nothing wrong with paying freelancers or agencies to promote your Instagram account, but you have to be cautious. As mentioned earlier, accessing your Instagram account with multiple devices and IP address is a sure way to get your account deleted. If you’re using promotion services and they all login to your account using different locations and devices, it’s just a matter of time before Instagram hit your account.
A Lot Of Complains Regarding Your Account
No hate speech and the like of it, if someone added thrash comment regarding your content, just ignore them and keep on doing your work, you’re better than that. Always avoid doing any activity that will lead to the closure of your account, especially if you’re a business owner.
A lot of people are making a living from their Instagram account by selling products and services but still they engage in a lot of activities that will lead to account deletion. Be thoughtful when it comes to reaching and engaging with your followers on an Instagram profile or they can cause a disaster for you.
I believe these are the major reason that can lead to account closure without any prior notice. You have to do all you can to protect your account at all cost. If you’re sure you haven’t violated Instagram rules your account can always be recovered when you contact support for review, we’ll share with you how to do that before the end of this article.
Understand Instagram Account Closure
This is a temporary block from performing some activities; it’s as a result of multiple violations of Instagram rules which will cause your account to be suspended from performing certain actions in your account. Sometimes you might be granted access to login, but you can’t perform any action in the account, you can’t post, like, comment and other engagements.
Normally your account will be restored after the suspension period, or you have to contact the support team to look into your case. Account suspension means your account is under review, though a lot of the time it leads to permanent closure if after some time your account isn’t active you should contact support to see if it can be recovered.
This is also another closure that might happen to any Instagram account. You need to contact support to get your account recovered. They might ask for ID proof to show you’re the rightful owner of the account.
When your account is deleted chances are you’ll never recover that account, yes, you heard that right! If you can’t access your Instagram account, just hope it’s not permanent deletion. Most of the time this is done when the Instagram team have review your account and have confirmed you violate their terms of service to the extent that they will not allow you to keep running your Instagram account.
