What does this error mean? "The username you entered doesn't belong to an account..."

    I just got this error on MP after creating a new account this morning with a proxy and botting very slow on it.

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

    Does this mean I got banned? Should I register the same name again or use a diff name?

    Thanks!

    It may mean that the password has been reset due to suspicious activity. Has happened to me a few times where instagram would reset my password randomly. Check your emails for any messages from instagram related to this.

    It might have been banned try checking the instagram page of the account to see if it's still there.

    I think your account is banned. It must've been wiped out which is why instagram is saying the username doesn't even belong to an account. Typically you can now make another account even with the same username.

    Most of all I think your account is banned and that's why you get this message!

    Awww damn... at least it was on a new account.. guess i'll play around with the settings more.

    Should I create another account on a diff proxy but using the same IG name or is that a bad idea?
