  • Nudity on the platform.
  • Scammers and fraudulent activities by other users.
  • 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. You can find similar instructions in the Instagram help center.

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 policies and reporting

You will be provided with a list of issues you can report about including:

  • Spread of false information on Instagram.

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.

There has been a man sexually harassing my husband and I for years on instagram asking for explicit photos. When I block and report him, he just makes a new profile. It's been a revolving circle of this for years. How do I go about contacting instagram about this user? The reports apparently don't work and I need to talk to a support line. The fact that there is no chat support is beyond baffling to me.

I was spammed with likes by my friends and i spammed them with likes for fun, but suddenly my acc got compromised and kept telling me to change my password in which i forgot my password. I tried pressing the “forgotten password?” option but it wont work and kept putting me back into the “Change password” page and i cant log out of it and the only thing i see is just the “change your password” like dude i contact my friends through instagram daily and now suddenly instagram put me in this situation. So how do i even get back in to my acc or just abandon it when i cant even log out or i forgot my password. I tried all my passwords that i used but they all didnt work...This is already my second account already as my old one was banned for no reason.

2 days ago, My account got disabled automatically, and its not been working since last 3 days. I tried to recover my account but nothing happened and issue is not resolving. I had contacted the instagram support but no one answered or replied. This is pathetic that a complaint is being raised and still the issue is not solved.I request you kindly help me in getting in my account back.

I'm having trouble logging in for community guidelines as I used a third-party app and my account was suspended. They asked me for face verification, which I did, and later they said they'll let me know in 48 hours. It's been more than 12 hours, but I'm very anxious. How can I contact and tell them it won't happen again so they don't disable my account? When I used the third party app to keep track of following followers and stuff, it wasn't harming anyone. What do I do now? It's very important to me, and I can't explain how much

I am trying to log back into my instagram account however they are asking for me to fill in a verification code that they've sent to the email associated with that account. the problem is that I have forgotten the password to that email account and therefore can't access the verification code needed to log into my instagram account. If anyone has any advice I’d really appreciate it
