    Hi everyone,

    yesterday I created a new account via bluestacks and had it verified. I can use it just like any of my other accounts. The only thing that differs is that it doesn't show up in the user search. The pictures I uploaded are visible in the hashtag search however. Also had a couple new followers...

    But here's the catch: About a week ago, I created another one via bluestacks using the same procedure, but this account works without any problems.

    I have to mention though that I made a new google email adress especially for that new one that I made yesterday, which might be the crucial point...

    So my question is: What would you do? Would you keep growing it and hope for IG to unghost the account or would you say "screw it" and make a new one?

    I would make a new account. Trash it and move on. You don't want to build it up and then keep having problems.

    Instagram can ghost your account in the search if it has certain words in your username. Normally to do with babes, sexy etc.

    thanks for the advice. No matter what I did, it didn't show up in the search terms so I deleted it.

    Might be... I'll start a similar account with a different name.

    I had this problem with some of my accounts, verified phone number and then it fixed the problem, or just leave it for about a week before doing anything to do the account
