Instagram takes safety seriously. If someone created an Instagram account pretending to be you, you can report it to us. Make sure to provide all the requested info, including a photo of your government-issued ID.
If you have an Instagram account, you can report it to us from within the app, or by filling out this form. If you don’t have an Instagram account, please fill out this form.
We only respond to reports sent to us from the person who’s being impersonated or a representative of the person who’s being impersonated (example: a parent). If someone you know is being impersonated, please encourage that person to report it.
Keep in mind that your report is anonymous, except if you’re reporting an intellectual property infringement. The account you reported won’t see who reported them.
Note: If you’re having trouble uploading a photo of your ID from a mobile phone, please try submitting this form from a computer.
