    So I was so sick of low engagement I decided to temporarily disable my account.
    I just wanted to try it and see if it reset anything. But when I went to log back into my IG I got the message:

    The username you entered doesn't belong to an account. Please check your username and try again.

    Errr what?? I'm kinda freaking out, this was my main 4 year old account! :(

    I just got a message on the phone after trying to recover it saying "we havent finished disabling this account check back in a few hours"
    So that might be it. Seems you can just disable/enable that quickly.

    How long ago did you try? Mostly of the time it takes a couple hours when you can log in again.

    Aren't you supposed to waite a few hours until the disable goes into effect then after that you can undisable it.
    You can't login to it when it is going through the process of being disabled. From what I know the process usually takes a few hours.

    His account was one that he disabled himself, those are easier to recover vs pages that ig disabled themselves :(
