How do I report a child under the age of 13 on Instagram?

Instagram requires everyone to be at least 13 years old before they can create an account (in some jurisdictions, this age limit may be higher). Accounts that represent someone under the age of 13 must clearly state in the account’s bio that the account is managed by a parent or manager. If your child is younger than 13 and has an account that isn’t managed by you or a manager, you can show them how to delete their account.

If you'd like to report an account belonging to someone under 13 or if you believe someone is impersonating your child who's under 13, please fill out this form. We will delete the account if we can't verify the account is managed by someone over 13 years old.
