    Hey BlackHatWorld,

    I keep posting photos that seem to be following the Instagram community guidelines, but they keep getting removed. There isn't any nudity, no transparency/see-through clothing or any sort, and nothing that can even remotely be mistaken for lack of clothes, but I keep getting removal notices.

    Now I'm fine with photos getting removed if it isn't going to harm my account, but I'm not sure how that works.

    Veterans of Instagram, does having photos removed lead to an eventual ban of an account if it happens enough times? Along with that, why could my photos have been removed? More information is available through PM, such as the exact photos that were removed, if any reputable members want to help me out.

    Thanks all!

    What was the photo about? nudity can not be the only reason of removal. There are also other things that can cause this.

    If anything, they would have been because of nudity or something of that nature. That's why I'm stumped, because I went out of the way to make sure none of the photos were even remotely nude in any way.

    that's odd, you could have someone who has a vendetta against you and keeps reporting those photos.

    can you upload a couple photos here so we can see if there is anything that stands out?

    It's not a vendetta because they're 2 fresh accounts that are unrelated to one another, and it's happening to both (same sort of photos).

    I've inboxed you with a couple samples. Any other reputable members who want to see the removed photos and help me out with this, shoot me a message.

    I used a custom software to bypass Instagram's image filters, so that's not the issue either.

    If you consistently get reported on your photos, it'll actually get removed automatically without approval from IG. It know it's dumb.

    I've tested it.... also copyrighted don't get removed by IG unless someone reported it and etc.

    Does having photos removed lead to bans over time? It seems like approximately 10% of my photos are getting removed, so if I get, say, 20 photos removed will my account get banned outright?

    I can't disclose the niche of the accounts, but it can't be a troll because it's 2 separate accounts with the same sort of images that are getting photos removed. That's why I'm stumped.

    As I said, they aren't because it's happening on 2 accounts with the same sorts of photos, and both accounts are completely unrelated to one another. Additionally, they're both relatively new, so they're small.

    Do you get any verification when you login? Sometimes the photos that uploaded from the account that considered as a spam by Instagram would get deleted.

    No verification, photos aren't spammy in any way.

    Try changing the file size.

    Why would this be a factor?
