Report an Impersonation Account on Instagram

If someone created an Instagram account that's pretending to be you or someone you know, please use this form to file a report.
If you believe your intellectual property rights are being infringed by this account, learn how to file a report.
Please attach a clear photo of yourself holding an accepted ID. Make sure both your face and the photo in the ID are clearly visible.
If you're representing someone else who is being impersonated, have that person take a photo of themselves holding an accepted ID, ensuring that their face and the photo ID are clearly visible.
If possible, please save this file as a JPEG. If you're having trouble uploading a photo of yourself holding your ID from a mobile device, please try submitting this form from a computer.
Note: We won't be able to process your request unless you submit an ID that meets our requirements.
Note: If you're having trouble uploading files from your phone, please visit the Instagram Help Center and complete this form from a computer.
We can only act on reports from the person who's being impersonated or their authorized representative (ex: parent, legal guardian). Please ask the person being impersonated or their representative to file a report.
