It’s very possible that at one point or another, you’ve broken the social media platform’s rules following a picture or video you posted.
Instagram will determine whether the said post is inappropriate or offensive towards another person.
For violation, you might be shadowbanned, which means your content isn’t appearing on anyone’s feed or explore page unless they follow you. Even if you aren’t shadowbanned and have no indication that you’ve ever violated the rules, you might still have at least one violation on your list — and weirdly, that’s kind of fun to see.
Instagram may not show you the exact photo or comment that broke the rules, but at least now you know if you have, in fact, broken a rule.
How to see your Instagram violations
- Open Instagram.
- Go to your profile page by tapping your profile photo in the bottom-right corner.
- Tap the three hamburger lines in the top-right corner.
- Select Settings and privacy.
- Tap Support Requests
- Tap Violations to see the posts you’ve shared on Instagram or Threads that go against the guidelines.
- Your violations will appear with the date of the review.
