How do I report something inappropriate when using Instagram on the web?

If you're using Instagram on the web (ex: on a computer or web browser) and you see something that isn't following our Community Guidelines, you can either report the account of the person who posted it or report the post.

  • To report someone's account, go to their profile and click next to their username. Select Report user. Then click the type of account you want to report and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • To report a post, click below the post. Then click Report inappropriate and follow the on-screen instructions.

Keep in mind that you can also report abuse while using the Instagram app.
