Why is my Instagram account restricted?

There might be multiple reason why Instagram is failing with the error "We restrict certain activities to protect our community. Let us know if you think we made a mistake."

Case 1:

You have engaged massively with following/unfollowing, posting, liking/commenting, and so on, causing Instagram to flag your account.
We have noticed that Instagram has restricted accounts if the age or other profile details on Instagram are not verified.
Simply verify the age (and other details) to resolve the issue. You can learn more about how to do that here.
If that does not work, then we recommend you reach out to their support team to understand why your account is restricted and resolve the issues.

Case 2:

The Facebook Profile/Page linked to the Instagram account may have been flagged.
Because we communicate with Instagram through Facebook, it's possible that the issue lies on your Facebook Profile/Page
Unfortunately, this is something that goes beyond the scope of support that we offer -- you would have to resolve the issue with the Facebook support team.

How to un-restrict my Instagram account:

To lift the restriction off from your Instagram account you have to get in touch with Instagram's support team, since this is managed completely by them. You can access the link here.
