How do I report a deceased person's account on Instagram?

It's our policy to remove the account of a deceased person from Instagram. To protect the privacy of people on Instagram, we're unable to provide anyone with login information to an account.

When you submit a report of a deceased person, we require proof of death such as:

  • The deceased person's birth certificate
  • The deceased person's death certificate
  • Proof of authority under local law that you are the lawful representative of the deceased person, or his/her estate
  • An obituary
