  • Challenges with Instagram login.

2. How to Call Instagram Support?

You might struggle to find an Instagram support phone number on the app or website. However, there is a phone number provided on various websites including PissedConsumer. Thus, when you search for the Instagram customer service phone number, you will be offered only this number: (650) 543-4800.

According to Instagram review #2850480, the phone number does not go through to a customer service representative. When you call Instagram support number, it diverts to an automated voice system where you are directed to follow certain online instructions to resolve the issue.

3. How to Contact Instagram Customer Service via Email?

According to answers on Quora, the Instagram customer service email is It was initially open for customers to reach out to support, but it is no longer open. When you send a message to this Instagram customer service email, you receive an automated response referring you back to the help center to resolve the issue.

This is evidenced by the numerous complaints that indicate that users do not get a response to the Instagram customer support emails they send out.

However, Instagram customer support does communicate with users via a no-reply email. Therefore, if you contact Instagram customer service help in-app e.g. by reporting an issue, they might respond by sending you an email. This option might be more helpful than calling the Instagram support phone number.

For instance, Instagram review #2879776 indicates that the customer received an email from after updating their email address.

Instagram Help Center How to report things

For these issues, reporting through the app is more effective than sending messages to Instagram customer service email or calling a phone number. The easiest way to report abusive or spam content is by tapping on the report option on the content itself.


There is no real person on the other end when you call the support phone number or attempt to find an Instagram customer service live chat. Neither an Instagram customer service email address nor a way to chat with a support representative. This makes it quite difficult for users to contact Instagram customer support for help. Users have to rely on the help center to find answers. You can also login into your Instagram account to report an issue.

Hi , i have trouble accessing my account . I have not violated any regulations. I’ve been using my accounts as usual , and this morning i had trouble logging in , the following images appear on my screen . I’m a hundred percent positive that I haven’t violated any of the guidelines and don’t even know if account has been deactivated or if it’s just a lag . I don’t have similar problems on my other accounts , just @irinkaa.e . It also says to enter some 6-digit code that was sent on my phone number but i received it late so it was already expired. I hope this problem will be fixed soon .

Hello,I seem to have an issue with logging into my Instagram account, the problem is, is that I have been randomly blocked from my account due to security issues and I wish to log back in. However there is my old telephone number that I don’t use anymore and I am unable to change this number to the current one I have now. Changing this number would allow me to regain access to my account but there is simply no option to change said number. I have tried all technical support hotlines but I can’t seem to get any where further with resolving my situation, could you please help me in solving this problem?My Instagram is @nikita.2.3
