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, on 06.03.2024 I was unsubscribed from my account on Instagram, the phone number is already old and the basic codes I received when creating the two-step verification do not work. My Facebook account works and is merged with the Instagram account. I only have two photos with different hair on my Instagram account. I wrote everywhere, even to support, and no one answered me. When I send the video for renewal, you don't want to approve it. No other answer!
