Remember if your account is permanently deleted then there will be no chance of getting back your Instagram account by any means.

Here you can follow the steps:

1. First, you have to visit the official website Instagram and then log in.

2. After login into your IG account please type the URL


3. Then give a valid reason why you want to delete your Instagram account then click on permanently delete my account.

If your account is permanently deleted by you once then neither Instagram nor you can get access to the account again.

Make sure that you won’t be able to recover your account in the future.

After deleting your Instagram account, you have to make a new Instagram account.

You can create the account by the same email but you have to choose different user names.

So here we discussed how you can delete your Instagram account either temporarily or permanently.

Now we will talk about if your account is flagged by Instagram and you can’t get access to your account then how you’ll get back account.

Here we will take a case study of a guy:

The guy Dani Amsalem. Who came across the situation that the account was flagged by Instagram and he wasn’t able to open his account then what he did?

He explained a few methods that you can also try to get back your Instagram account.

It may be possible that you have violated Instagram terms and services that’s why your account will be banned for a short period Don’t worry if this is for the short term then you can get back your account but if this is permanent then you have to create a new account.

Here are the steps that you can follow:

1. If your account shows this type of message that you have violated the terms of Instagram and your account is disabled then you don’t need to worry, just follow the steps that Dani told in his article.

2. Just click on the Learn More tab and follow the instructions.


If you have a business account like Dani had then you have to attach any valid document of your business proof.

If this is not the case then you can directly fill out all the details without attaching any document and click on submit.

3. Your appeal form is now submitted to the record. Now Instagram will send you the mail.


4. The mail containing the steps that you have to follow.

Again you’ll land on the page containing instructions that you need to follow Please attach your recent photo along with the random code provided by Instagram your user name, and your full name then click on submit.


5. After a few days, you’ll get the email again that your account is now activated.

If your account is activated then cheers!

If this trick does not work for you then you can follow a few more steps to get back to your Instagram account.

You can try a few more ideas to get back to your Instagram account as Dani explained in his article.

#Idea 1

You can directly contact the Instagram support team on their official Twitter handler by @igofficialhelp.

#Idea 2

You can directly message the employers on Instagram.

Instagram is a company that must have employers.

You can easily find them on LinkedIn and Facebook.

You can directly reach them and send them a direct message that your account is blocked please help me to sort out the issue.

Maybe after some DM, you’ll get a response from any team member as Tommy Kuo did.

#Idea 3

You can ask the Facebook community for help because as all we know Instagram is owned by Facebook so maybe their employers can help you sort out the issue.

You can reach the Facebook community by following the link here

#Idea 4

Last but not least, you can send continuous mail to their support email address as given here support@instagram.

You can shoot the mail several times daily. Maybe your account will reactivate again.

I hope these tactics will work for you to get back your Instagram account.

If this is not the case and you still do not get back to your account then, unfortunately, you have to create a new account.


So after concluding the session, I want to clarify that use these functions wisely.

Don’t just disable the account. Maybe you’ll not get back to your Instagram account again.

If you have a business account then it’s a personal suggestion to you don’t disable your account unless it’s a necessity.

Best wishes!
