I set up an e-mail for my new business venture. And of course wanted to secure the username using my new business e-mail. I followed the instructions, input my e-mail, followed the prompts on screen, Instagram e-mailed my the verification code to start the account. And the split second I typed it in, the account locked up. It’s literally stuck and I cannot do anything with it. I tried emailing support only to get a generic “you violated TOS” response. But the account was not even activated for me to violate any rules?! The screen name I was going to use for my business is now locked and I cannot do anything with it. Oh, and get this. I tried to do the same thing, creating a new e-mail and a different screen name, the EXACT same thing happened. Pleas help me and get your glitch code fixed so people can create accounts without it stealing the username and you claiming there’s “nothing you can do about it” just fix it!
Somehow Instagram just seems to keep getting worse? I’ve been using instgram for several years now. Recently I’ve been seeing a lot of racist comments and I’ve been reporting them however there is no category for racism. So I put it under bullying/harassment. Few days later I get a review saying that there’s nothing wrong with the comments and that they can’t remove them. Which is awful. Instagram claims to want to be a safe environment for everyone. And yet they seem to condone racism especially toward Asian people! They also began to remove my comments that i left for a sex bot on a meme page comment section. Not even 5 second after comment my joke Instagram sent a message saying that my comment was bullying and harassment(it was not at all). Instagram please remove actually problematic racist comments rather than protecting your sex bots. Very disappointed.
I’m begging you please stop showing me reels just because they have an instagram filter in them. It’s so annoying and I click not interested every time I see it and I don’t interact with the video at all yet the algorithm still thinks I somehow want to see boring reels with obscured faces due to instagram filters. I don’t care what hair colors people think look best on them because of a filter, I don’t care about people’s eye colors in a filter, I don’t care about people complaining about filters with a filter on, I don’t care about the “BEST FILTER EVER” it’s so boring please stop showing me it. I don’t want to see an Instagram filter reel ever again.
The “add yours” sticker does not work on my main and oldest account! I’ve reset my phone, I’ve deleted and redownloaded the application, I’ve changed my account from personal to business and still nothing brings it back! It worked one time and now it’s not available to add to my stories nor can I click on the “add yours” in others peoples stories to add to. It works on my other accounts, why the heck does it not work on my main account?! It’s not fair or right. Please please please fix this, I shouldn’t have to make a whole new account that works just fine when I’ve had mine since 2014. Please help. y’all gotta fix this please
So I’m liking this app and how it’s basically tik tok, but some of these updates really made me mad. I just recently got a new update with the audio, it doesn’t let you look at your saved audio’s, it just lets you see the most popular ones. I really liked saving my favorite Audios just to listen to and even sometimes make videos on. But it really frustrates me when it just says re load and when I do it just shows the most recent ones used… I’m not sure if anyone else got annoyed by this but this update needs to go. I love my audios please don’t take them away 😭
The update that automatically sends a DM to an account that was tagged is intrusive and annoying. You need to make it optional.
My original review:
I somehow waited a long time before getting into Instagram and I now wonder why! I use it both to take pictures within the app itself but also to modify existing pictures, which really helps put a great new spin on them. I also love following the many great photographers who put their work on Instagram. This has become one of my favorite photo apps and I highly recommend it!
There’s no technical support on the app or desktop. My account has been hacked about 5 days now. Every day, multiple times a day I’ve submitted video selfies as proof where a got a bot returned email about being contacted in one business day. I’ve not had any contact about my situation and I haven’t been able to find any other way to get in contact with Instagram. I have had this profile for over a decade, and this is the first issue I’ve had. Very disappointed that I can’t get the technical help I need and in decent time.
First of all, for a multi-billion dollar company should have customer service. There is literally no way to contact anyone/get help with account issues! The app is glitching all of the time and updates are just causing more issues. The past 5 weeks, I’ve been put into “Instajail “ 4 times for “sharing my password with a service that provides more likes or followers “. Seriously?? If I were buying followers, I’d surely have more than 8k. Get it together Instagram and fix these issues.
There have been a lot of issues with my Instagram app. When I try to add music to a picture or boomerang on my story no music pops out. It won’t show me my own pictures on my account, it tells me I have pictures but they won’t show. I’ve logged out, deleted the app multiple times, I have also turned off and turned on my phone but nothing has worked, and updated it. Instagrams help center has no solutions. What do I do?
But it’s been so heartbreaking for the past 2 years my followers haven’t been reflecting rather they reduce which isn’t too good for my page as a brand considering am an African Actor whose base is in America. I also tried applying for verification with my Work authorization/social security no answer. Please if my page can be looked into I will appreciate. Thanks Instagram for being here for us. We love you
