Can I have access to my teen's Instagram account?

We appreciate your concern for your child's use of our app, but unfortunately we can't give you access to the account or take any action on the account at your request. We're generally forbidden by privacy laws against giving unauthorized access to someone who isn't an account holder.

Please note that all users ages 13 and older are considered authorized account holders and are included in the scope of this policy.

Instagram requires everyone to be at least 13 years old before they create an account (in some areas, the age limit may be higher). You can learn more about how to report underage accounts.

If you are concerned about your teen on Instagram, learn more from "A Parent's Guide to Instagram." This guide was developed by Instagram with the help of safety and parenting organizations around the world.
