    Hey guys,

    So, I'm starting a new ig acc, BUT the name I want is taken by an inactive profil? Is there any blackhat metodes to come across this problem?
    I know you can report the user inactice but that'll never work...

    No, there's no other way. Just create a different username, add a . or _ or whatever is available.

    Idk about blackhat methods, but when I go to create a new IG account, I always have several usernames that I think up in advance. That way, if one is taken, I can just register another one.

    Maybe try some variation of the name you wanted. Like if you wanted "dogtrainer" you can try "dogtra1ner" or something.

    Thanks guys. I Guess the right way to go would be to think out the box, and be creative in regards of the name.
    Hmm.

    Yeah, just register a different name, or put a number or an extra letter in.
