Preliminary information

First of all, let me clarify what has already been mentioned in the intro: if you ask yourself how to know who reports you on Instagram, you should know that this information is not directly available, as the reports on the photographic social network take place in an understandably anonymous manner.

However, it is possible to succeed equally in the intent by implementing some alternative solutions, which can be useful to put together some "clues" and thus get to find out who could have made a report on Instagram. To find out more, read on.



How to find out who reports you on Instagram

Having made the necessary premises above, to succeed in the intent you have proposed, first start the app of Instagram available for free on Android (on the Play Store and on alternative stores) and on iPhone (from the App Store) or, if you prefer to act as a computer, connect to the official website of the well-known photographic social network. For the rest, follow the instructions below.

Check the comments

The first solution that I suggest you put in place, to try to trace the name of the person who reported you on Instagram, is to check the comments you have received under your latest posts, to see if by chance there have been any criticisms that you have not read: you could thus find out why you were reported and, presumably, also identify the name of the person who sent the report to the social network team.

To do this, start the Instagram or connect to the official website of the photographic social network, log in to your account and proceed as follows: press on tuo profilo miniature located in the lower right corner (or in the upper right corner, if you are acting from the Web), to go to your profile screen and see your latest posts published.



At this point, tap on the miniature of the content you have recently posted and click onfumetto icon, to see all comments received under the posts in question. By doing this, you will be able to realize if someone has written negative comments to you that could justify submitting a report. In the event that there are, in fact, it is possible that it was the person who wrote the negative comment to have reported your profile.

Check private messages

Another tip I want to give you is to check your private messages on Instagram. After regaining possession of your account, you may want to check the chat, to see if by chance the report was made following a negative comment that was sent to you privately.

To do this, log in to your account via the social network app for smartphones or from the Web, by connecting to its official website; then, presses onairplane icon located in the upper right corner, in order to access the section relating to private messages. At this point, check, through the chat, the messages you have recently received: if you notice any particular message, press on it to view the conversation in detail.

Also check, always acting through the screen relating to Instagram's private messages, if by chance a request appears regarding the sending of a private message: it could, in fact, be that the message has been filtered and finished in the section dedicated to spam messages . In this case, click on the request to read the content of the message.


In the event that there are negative messages to which you have not replied, that could be the cause of the report reached your account: the author of the message, therefore, could be the reporter.


Check followers

In case you have a few people following you on Instagram you could check the follower list to see if there are any changes in it. In this case, in fact, it could be that the person who wrote the report has decided to stop following you. In addition, this person, following the report, may also have decided to block you.


To get this information, launch the Instagram on your device or log in to your account from the Web. Then, go to your profile screen by pressing on the thumbnail of the same.

Once this is done, click on the item follower and scroll through the list of people who follow you, to see if there are any changes. In case you suspect that a person has stopped following you, search their profile through the search engine of the social network (theicon of the lens of ingrandimento or the search bar above, from the Web).

Once you have located the profile of the user in question, verify that your account is in the list of people below by clicking on the entry followed (Profiles followed from the Web).


If you can no longer find the profile of a user that you believe has unfollowed you, as you will be shown the wording User not found, it is possible that the person in question has blocked you. And this also increases the chances that this is the author of the report you received.

When you are reasonably certain that you have identified the author of a report received on Instagram, you could also try to get in touch with him (as long as he has not blocked you) and to clarify the matter, apologizing for any misunderstandings arising from your actions to the inside the social network.
