    As anticipated at the beginning, reactivating a deactivated Instagram account is very feasible. The operation can be followed both from a smartphone (therefore through the official app of the service) and from a computer (using the application available for Windows 10) as well as from the Web (by accessing the online version of Instagram). To find out how to proceed in all three cases, follow the appropriate instructions that you find right below. Enjoy the reading!



    Yes smartphone

    First of all, let's try to understand how to reactivate the Instagram account by acting as a smartphone, more precisely through the official app of the service available for Android, iOS and Windows Mobile. Regardless of the mobile platform in use, the first fundamental step you must take to succeed in your intent is to grab your mobile phone, unlock it, access the screen of the same where all the applications are grouped and tap on the Instagram icon ( there retro camera).

    On the screen that you will find yourself in front of at this point, type the username you used on Instagram before deactivation and the password for your account in the fields Username e Password then stop on the button Log in which is at the bottom. In a few moments you will find yourself in front of a welcome back message and the Instagram app home with all your posts, your likes and those of others, your followers and your following exactly as you left them (except for any changes made by the other parties involved, as easily understood).

    If you then used your Facebook account to access Instagram, on the main screen of the application presses the appropriate item that is at the bottom to be able to log in to the service using your data relating to the social network of Mark Zuckerberg. If you are then offered an additional screen through which you are asked to confirm your willingness to access Instagram through Facebook, answer in the affirmative, of course.



    From computer

    Do you want to reactivate your Instagram account using the official application of the service available for Windows 10? So, to begin with, start the latter by recalling it via the Start menu then fill in the fields Phone number, username or email e Password typing your login data to Instagram and click on the button Log in.

    If you previously signed up for the service using Facebook, you will need to click the link instead to reactivate your profile Accedi con Facebook at the bottom, you will then have to enter your login details to Mark Zuckerberg's Newark social network and you will have to click on the button to login.

    In both cases, just wait a few moments to find yourself in the presence of a welcome back message and the main Instagram screen as if nothing had ever happened. All your posts, your likes and those of others, your followers and your following will be exactly where you left them (except for any changes made by the other parties involved, of course).

    From the Web

    Are you interested in understanding how to reactivate your Instagram account through the online version of the famous service? In this case, the first step you need to take is to visit the web page to login to Instagram (you can do it through any browser). Then fill in the fields Phone number, username or email e Password by typing your login data to Instagram and click on the button Log in.


    If you previously registered for the service via Facebook, in order to reactivate your Instagram account you will need to connect to this other Internet page instead. Once displayed, press the button Log in with Facebook and enter your Facebook login data.


    In both cases, once you have entered the login details to your account, within a few moments you will find yourself in front of a welcome back message and the main Instagram page with all your posts, your likes and those of others, your followers dd your following just as if nothing ever happened (except for any changes made by the other parties involved, of course). It was easy, wasn't it?

    Alternatives to reactivating deleted Instagram account

    As anticipated at the beginning of the Arctic, reactivating the Instagram account is a feasible operation only and exclusively if you have temporarily deactivated it. In case of full elimination, your account, I'm sorry to tell you, was canceled in an irreversible and final way e it is no longer recoverable.

    In such a situation, if you want to start using Instagram again, you have a single solution at your disposal: create a new account, perhaps with a username similar to the previous one, and upload all the photos and mini videos to it. you previously posted with the old profile (assuming you have a backup of the images or that you still have any original copies on your devices).

    To find out the exact procedure on how to create a new Instagram account you can read my post dedicated to the topic, while if you want some more info about the practice of backing up photos you can take a look at my tutorial on how to save photos from Instagram.


    Once the new account has been created, I also recommend that you communicate this to all your acquaintances and to all your contacts in general. To do this, you can help you with other social networks you are subscribed to (eg Facebook or Twitter) by publishing specific posts in which you explain the thing and maybe even inserting a link to your new Instagram profile. You will see, by doing so in a short time you will be able to restore the situation. I know, it's a bit annoying and it takes a little patience but, as they say, whoever lasts it wins!


    Reactivate account disabled by Instagram

    You are interested in understanding how to reactivate your account because it was suspended in an arbitrary mannerto from Instagram and not by your will? Well, evidently this happened because the Instagram team felt that your posts somehow violated the community guidelines or terms of use of the service.

    However, if you are of the opinion that there has been an error (errare humanum est!), You can easily remedy it by explaining your reasons to the social network. To do this, try to connect to your account as you usually do and fill in the fields on the screen that you will see appear automatically explaining what happened and what are your reasons.

    The Instagram team will analyze your motivations more and decide how to proceed. However, if it was an error you have absolutely nothing to get, your account will certainly be reactivated!

    In case of problems

    Even if you have strictly followed my instructions, have you not yet reactivated your Instagram account? Has any other problem arisen and would you like to understand how to solve it? Given the situation, I strongly recommend that you get in direct contact with the social network to try to find the solution to your problem.

    To understand how to do it depending on the difficulties, you can take a look at the official assistance center of the social network through which various issues are addressed and numerous problems of ordinary administration are resolved. So try to look at the various topics available, maybe you can immediately find a solution to your problems and dispel all your doubts about the functioning of the service.

    As for access problems in the strict sense, try to do this: start the Instagram app on your smartphone and step on the item Get help with logging in which is located at the bottom. Then choose whether to start the password recovery procedure via username and e-mail or via SMS, provide the requested information (username, email address or mobile number) and proceed to reset the password of your account using the instructions that will be given to you delivered via email or SMS.

    On Windows 10 the steps to take are practically the same: you have to select the item Get help with logging in which is located at the bottom of the Instagram app window and then you have to choose whether to start the password recovery procedure via username and e-mail or via SMS, you must provide the requested details (username, email address or mobile number ) and then you must reset your account password using the instructions that will be provided to you via e-mail or SMS.

    From the Web, however, you must connect to this page and request a password reset by typing your email address or your username on Instagram in the appropriate field on the screen.

If, on the other hand, you are interested in finding out what other systems you have from yours in order to get in touch with Instagram assistance, I suggest you consult my tutorial dedicated to how to contact Instagram.
