What happens when I report a post or profile on Instagram?
When you report a piece of content (example: post, comment, story) to us, we will take action to hide or remove that content from Instagram if we find that it goes against our Community Guidelines. Our Community Guidelines define what is and isn't allowed on Instagram, and they apply all over the world. They're designed to encourage expression and create a safe environment on Instagram.
Even if we don’t remove the content or profile you reported, we understand that you likely want to see less of this type of content on Instagram. We may use your report to make content similar to what you reported appear lower in your feed or in the recommendations we make for you, like Suggested Posts and Explore.
Learn more about how to check the status of your report and what you can do if you don't agree with Instagram's decision about content you reported.
