I ran into a very absurd situation just now. I wanted to create a new personal IG account. Found a real nice and short name. The name was available. So I registered the account through my Macbook on Instagram.com. When I clicked it seemed successfully, but then it redirected me back to the homepage. I tried the exact same again, but then they wrote your E-Mail address is already in use. Your username is taken.

So what did I do? Just tried to login, then I got a message "Your account has been deactivated for no following the ToS etc." I literally didn't do anything. So just now I tried to fix it and they sent me an e-mail to make a photo of myself and write some numbers on a paper.

Wtf is this shit?

just send them the paper with your face and the number 9/10 they will unblock your account.

Are you using public internet connection? Maybe someone else is spamming through it?

Your IP is probably flagged, try reactivating it trough the forms if your keen on that username. Otherwise try making a account on mobile internet.

Happened to me a few days ago. It is effectively your IP which has been flagged and banned by Instagram. If you try to create another account they will ban it straight away. I have a program which delete all the cookies stored on my computer and other things as well. This has then resolved the problem.
Advice: If you are concerned about privacy and cookies go to privacytools.io (not spam or junk) trust me.

Cheers,

Good luck getting it unbanned. In the worst case scenario, I would recommend talking to your ISP to get a new IP and start a new IG account.

I used my phone to create a new account. Same Wifi connection/IP. Didn't have any problem. It seems the problem was I registered it through my laptop.

Well IG is crazy like that sometimes.

Try send an email to the support. If they ask for verification, do it. Most likely you will get your account back.

Okay, so I sent the pictures of myself. The guy was super quick in replying and reactivating my account. And we started to have an conversation via E-Mail.

Guess what? I asked him to give me the verify badge. Lets see what he is going to say
