    Today I discovered that someone is using my identity and my photos on Instagram.
    It's easy to ban the accounts with the support of Instagram but that person is creating accounts everyday... He/She uses my name and my photos.

    I don't know what to do, he's following people i know, my friends and commenting photos, etc...

    Is there anyway to discover his IP and his home adress?

    The last option is going to the police, but the police in Portugal = sh*t.

    If anyone could help me i aprecciate it.
    Maybe this is not the correct place to request help, but is urgent!

    Isn't that the premise of getting verified on Instagram? Perhaps contact support a few times, and if it keeps happening perhaps push for verificaiton

    That what a ex does or someone you pee off intresting.

    Best pratice is contact all the nembers on your friends list and explain the situation.

    tell them to ignore all messages and im from that account.

    now report to ig as an emergency .

    gd luck.

    ps.
    police don't do shit anyway, cybercrime huge but ppl personating others becomming normal compliant , soneone has to do somethink to you or frud to be tacken serious .

    tell them on your page you no what going on with a fake account of you , and post a link to the profile as a fake profile of you and eventually the fske account will get ban and all my friends no about you!(( play with someone else life!

    You can't get his IP/address unless ypu subpoena IG in court (which won't happen). Even then, I'm sure the account creator is masking such information with IP's.

    Yeah... I'm contacting support but that will not curb the person from creating more accounts... Well, internet has these shits.
    Thanks for the help!

    Yeah... I think too is someone i know... People are mad!

    Yeah... Maybe is one of my EX's, girls are crazy.
    I'm gonna do that... Maybe the person gets ip ban.

    Thanks for the help!

    It's worth a shot. When I was 14 someone (my friend was trolling me) impersonated me on facebook, my mom found out, panicked & contacted the authorities right away, 2 weeks later two officers were at my door with official facebook documents asking if i wanted to press charges against my best friend. (I have to add this happened in small town belgium)

    I had the same problem with someone on Twitter but with my brand

    The only solution I found was to set up an autofill for the report form

    It was taking me less than a minute per day and the guy finally stopped

    For Instagram, you can also put your profile on private, then switch back to public in a few weeks and see if he keeps doing it
