Make sure you complete your Instagram profile to add a proper bio, email address, phone number and uploading a profile picture. Also, as mentioned above, link other social networks to your Instagram account. This will show Instagram’s algorithm that your profile is real or authentic. otherwise algorithm of Instagram may consider your account as a fake user and block it. this is also a very simple way to make your Instagram account unblocked as soon as possible

6. Enable Two-Factor Authentication

The best thing you can do to ensure you’ve you’ve removed all access is to enable Two-Factor Authentication. Many users don’t have any idea about this, but when you turn on two-factor authentication, you will essentially let Instagram know that you are not using any third party applications and tools for any type of automation. You can increase your account health score my doing this.This can also fix your action block, but if not, it will definitely help avoid another action block in the future.

7. Rewrite your BIO and remove link from your BIO

If you are action blocked in Instagram make sure you rewrite your BIO and remove link from your BIO, if you have one. This worked for me for my menwithquote‘s account, it’s easy and there’s no reason not to try it. In the previous point, I’ve mentioned that a link in BIO increases your chances to get the action block and decreases your action limit.

8. delete all 3rd party apps and tools

I have already mentioned many times, that you should use your Instagram account manually and using automation tools. Delete all 3rd party applications and tools and access of your IG account and change your IG password. because by using scheduling apps and tools for your account can cause the action block. that’s why advise you should avoid 3rd party scheduling apps, and that you should use Instagram’s human oriented tools for automation.

9. Reinstall your Instagram app

Delete the Instagram app and install it again. After that, the cookies and other data collected by Instagram should be removed, which is helpful in getting rid of the action block, especially the temporary one. We heard from one one of our subscribers and he got success to remove action block for their account.

10. Send a report to Instagram

If you feel you have done nothing to warrant an action block on Instagram, then you need to fight it. Simply send an honest report to Instagram’s support detailing everything about an action block.

Primarily, when the “action blocked” error pops up, it usually has two options: Tell us and Ignore. To request a manual review by Instagram, tap the Tell us button. But some types of error pop-ups have no other option but OK. In this case, you can go to Settings>Help>Report A Problem and Explain your difficulties to Instagram and hit the send button. After sending it, then you need to wait for a period of time to get a response.

An investigation will be carried out by the support agent and if you’re found innocent, then your account can be unblocked immediately. It is important to read about Instagram guidelines and act accordingly before you take this type of action.

11. spend some money on ads

If you have some money, spend some money on ads promote your Instagram posts. This has removed action blocks for us in several cases to get higher engagement and reach on post. that accounts who spend some money on ads (even as little as 5$) have higher action limits which should also help you avoid another action block in the future.

12. Don’t do any kind of activity on Instagram for at least 48 hours

Rome was not worked in a day and neither your account will be unblocked in a day.this only work, if you are lucky. Don’t do any kind of activity on Instagram for at least 48 hours.

But, in most of the cases, you need to be patient. It could take anything from 4 hours to 4 weeks to restore your Instagram account.

What If This Doesn’t Work

If none of these methods worked for you to remove action block then unfortunately you will have to wait it out. As I have mentioned sometimes action block message comes with the expiration date and sometimes it doesn’t. Action blocks usually last from 12 to 48 hours, but sometimes they can last for up to two weeks. If that’s the case and you don’t want to wait that long, you can start growing another account while you’re waiting to get unblocked. Don’t forget to check triggers for action blocks if you have not already, and if you have another device I would advise you to start the new account on that device using mobile data.

Right now, unfortunately, there’s nothing else you can do, but since I’ve seen a lot of people complaining about action blocks on their personal accounts where they actually have done nothing wrong, I’m sure Instagram will take it a bit easier in the future, because they are really starting to get their users angry, which is just bad for business.
