    They will remove the inactive accounts. Its easily to find out the inactive accounts on their database.
    And for the fake accounts may be they will track the IP.

    Question: If I found an account that is inactive for over 365 days, is there a way to message Instagram and tell them that I WANT that account?

    My 'other' accs having been used for about a week. If I run them with general comments, I'd have a better chance of not having them deleted?

    maybe they will do the work for you w/o asking if they really delete inactive accounts, so you can pick the name up

    i'm pretty sure, one week inactivity doesn't render your accs inactive

    And good for those who grow their accounts for skiping inactive ones while scraping :)

    All you have to do is pick up the name after it is deleted. If you have a lot of ideas for @'s that are taken right now, might be a good week for you.

    The only way this works in my experience is if you have legal ownership of the name (trademark for example).


    An unjustified request will go ignored. A trademark request was handled in a matter of days in my case.
