To regain access on Instagram after being blocked, start by creating a new account and sending a follow request to the person (if their account is private). If you find yourself unable to follow or like someone on Instagram, there are specific steps you can take to re-establish access to their profile and interact with their content.

How To Get Unblocked On Instagram:

If you’ve blocked someone on Instagram, they won’t be able to send you direct messages or tag you in posts. Here are some methods you can try to get unblocked on Instagram:

1. Changing Email ID

To remove a block from someone’s Instagram account, simply create a new Instagram account with a valid email address different from your previous one. Follow these steps within your existing Instagram app:

  • Tap your profile photo in the bottom right corner.
  • Then, tap the three horizontal bars in the top right corner.
  • Select “Settings.”
  • Scroll down and tap “Add Account.”
  • Use the new email address and submit.

2. Change the Username

As you begin creating a new account, the initial step is selecting a username for your new Instagram profile. Ensure this username is unique and distinct from your previous one. Changing the username is crucial when setting up a new profile, especially if your previous account has been blocked. Remember to change your username after creation to allow the new account to claim it.

3. Create the Account with Previous ID

After successfully creating a new Instagram account with a new email address and username, the next step is to transfer the username to the previous one. Once completed, you’ll observe that multiple accounts have been added, including your current and previous accounts. From your new account, you’ll be able to locate the person who had previously blocked you.

4. Change Username to Previous One

If you’ve just set up a new Instagram account with a fresh username and email, you might wonder if you can incorporate your old username into your new account. The good news is, yes, you can change your username whenever you want, provided it’s available.

If someone who has blocked your previous Instagram account initiates a conversation with you, you’ll automatically revert to using your old username.

The primary reason for changing your username is to ensure you’re discoverable in searches, especially if your username is linked to other social media accounts or belongs to someone else.

To change your username, simply navigate to your Instagram profile and select the ‘Edit Profile’ option. From there, you can switch back to your previous username.

5. Send Person Request

Once you’ve finished setting up a new Instagram account with a fresh email ID and reverted to your previous username, your next step is to ensure you’re unblocked by someone on Instagram.

To send a follow request to the person who blocked your previous IG account, you just need to search for them using the search bar within the app, and then send a follow request from your new Instagram account.

6. You’re Now Unblocked

Once you’ve sent a follow request from your new Instagram account with your previous username, you simply need to wait for the person to accept it.

Once they accept, you’ll regain access to their posts that were previously hidden from your blocked account. You can also send them direct messages, make calls, and video chat with them on Instagram.

If you can perform all these functions using your new Instagram account with your previous username, it indicates that you are no longer blocked.
