Help with an account being deleted!!!!
When I tried to get on my account today (about 4 hours after posting something) I was told that I had been logged out of my account. No biggie, it happens a lot. But when I tried logging in I got a message saying that my “request could not be completed”. Odd, but nothing some web surfing can’t fix. Well, nothing came up so I tried again and got a message that said (exactly) “Your account has been disabled for violating our terms: ”. No, I did not post pornographic/copyright infringing/vulgar/intellectual property belonging to someone else/ or anything against their terms on my account. There is also no reliable way to contact them. In case this is necessary to the retrieval of my account, the name is
Any advice?

What are you expecting anyone here at TR to do?

Instagram is their own site, they set their rules, we can't help you...other than if you used similar "signature" (3 x's) along with the user name including the phrase "baby"...well, what can I say other than choose a different user name and signature, something not easily associated with child pornography.

Send an email.

Well, i would try and contact customer service and air out my grievances because Instagram regularly removes fake accounts, however, in your case it was not a fake account. Plus sometimes if they think an account is violating the community guidelines, the account could be deleted without warning...Maybe someone accused your account and reported you without warning. Like i said, write them an email and keep us updated.
All the best dear!

The best you can do is to contact them. Instagram is indeed known for regularly deleting accounts and are very strict with their policy. It's also a possibility that someone reported your account or post that caused your account to be disabled. Good luck.
