    Second post on this website and second post about shadowbans haha.

    Shadowbans can be quickly over if you bite the bullet. In order to successfully remove a shadowban, you must cease all actions on your account for an entire week. I got rid of mine in one week, and prevented losing mass followers by temporarily disabling my account through browser instagram. This is the only way i got rid of mine after suffering for about 2 weeks waiting for my shadow ban to clear. It's painful, i know, but you can get right back to gaining once christmas is over, on the 26th, if you disable tonight.

    You still can log in , just do no actions , yes shadow ban is when you post something with hashtags it dosent show up and it gets 0 likes , like you're invisible , some banned hashtags may cause you a shadowban , like porn hashtags for example #boobs or stuff like this , i stopped using hashtags a long time ago and i got a very nice engagement rate .

    If you are a business account, move it to personal. And don't do anything for a week or so. You can check on your desktop (don't log in) to see if your hashtags for that account are working.

    Try this. Go to the last post you made that showed up in hashtags. You likely used a hashtag in that post that has been "banned" by IG. A good clue is if the image for the suggested hashtag does not look right (in the app). The image could be all grey or the hashtag may not appear at all.

    Remove any hashtags that look questionable from any old posts and try posting again.

    I only use suggested hashtags and IG apparently "banned" one, but ti still showed up in the suggested list! An account that was "shadowbanned" since last November now has a post appearing in hashtags again.
