How can I report a convicted sex offender on Instagram?

Convicted sex offenders aren't allowed to use Instagram. If you've seen an account that may belong to a convicted sex offender, please report it to us.

Please provide one of the following with your report:

  • A link to a listing in a national sex offender registry
  • A link to an online news article
  • A link to a court document

If you aren't able to include this with your report, we recommend that you ask a local law enforcement representative to contact us so we can take action on your report.

Once we're able to verify someone's status as a sex offender, we'll immediately disable their account.

If someone is harassing you, you can learn how to report them.
