6 Reasons Why Instagram Blocks You. To-Do Actions if You Get Banned [Updated][2020 Latest]

Why Can I Be Blocked on Instagram?

Reason #1: Mass following and Massliking

The most apparent sign of receiving a temporary block from Instagram is through trying to grow a significant number of likes and followers at one time. This can happen in both cases if you have used third-party promotion tools or performed manual actions without studying the users’ profiles.
Just take your smartphone and check all the spammers that followed you a week ago. I am sure 80% of those accounts will already be blocked. The most likely reason for this would be because they exceeded the limits on follows and likes.
Limits and restrictions according to official Instagram reference:

  • a maximum number of likes per hour: 60;
  • a maximum number of comments per hour: 60;
  • a maximum number of follows per hour: 60;
  • a maximum number of messages per hour: 60.

But if your account is fairly new, the limits are different:



  • a maximum number of likes per hour: 30;
  • a maximum number of comments per hour: 30;
  • a maximum number of follows/unfollows per hour: 30.

Important reminder. Instagram adds up the number of follows and unfollows as well as blocking the unwanted users. In total, you can’t take more than 1440 actions on your account daily. Make sure you spread out these actions accordingly.
Violation of Instagram rules leads to a temporary block. It involves limiting the profile’s functionality. You won’t be able to comment, like, follow or write in Direct Messages for a period of time (from 2 hours to 2 weeks).


Reason #2: Excessively Frequent Publications

Instagram monitors the algorithm of publications from one account. The thing is, only the social network knows what the accurate and safest number of publications is. Therefore, it would be advisable not to follow the example of other accounts that may frequently publish posts and get nothing for it.
The optimal advice for every profile is to make pauses between posts. By doing this, you will not be suspected of spamming and other manipulations. Also, we recommend that you do not publish the same photo at the same time from different accounts. Als you can use social media templates, if you want your posts to look really awesome.


Reason #3: Copyright Infringement

The copyright issue is a big deal on Instagram. All images in your account have to be either yours or permitted by the author. If you want to share somebody else’s image, tag the author in the photo (provided he has an Instagram account) and give credit to the author in the description. If you use images for commercial purposes, you will need to ask the author’s permission. Moreover, if you post a video with music to which you don’t have the rights, Instagram will remove such a post for sure.
What is the outcome of ignoring the copyright rules? The author can report you to Instagram for using the photo without their agreement or specifying the authorship and you can be blocked for copyright infringement.




Reason #4: Images/Videos Violating Social Network Rules

Photos and videos featuring naked bodies, sexual content and violence are considered inappropriate. Whatever goals you pursue, posting such inappropriate content can get you banned – so be forewarned.


Reason #5: User Complaints

Someone thought your account was a threat, so they clicked the “Report” button. If there are other people also reporting your account, Instagram will sooner or late block your profile. People can complain of different reasons: mass liking, mass following, insults, inappropriate content, spam etc. So, generally speaking, everything that I mentioned above can result in your account being blocked.


Reason #6: Different IP addresses and Devices

If you log into your account from multiple devices and confirm it via SMS, the platform is less likely to ban you. However, if it happens that you log in from different devices and IP-addresses, Instagram may think your account has been hacked by scammers. The social network reacts to it almost instantly and blocks the profile for your own safety.
