When you first discover that you're blocked from your Instagram profile you will naturally 😫 panic. 

You shoudn't. 

When a block occurs, you will be locked 🔒 out from your profile for 24 hours. 

Nothing you do in this period can help that. 

Take a few days off 🧘🏽‍♀️ and focus your attention on other platforms.

DO another appeal to get your deactivated instagram account back

When you try to log in 📲 you will see a pop-up 📄 form that directs you to fill up an appeal form. 

Depending on which policy you breached, the form will be different. 

Fill up the form accurately.

The Instagram team will send you an email 📧 to verify your identity. 

You may also be required to provide a photocopy of your government ID or a picture of you 😬 holding a code they provide you in the email.

Important: Make sure you check 💡your spam folder for this email because this step is crucial in getting your account reinstated.
