If you’re concerned about violating Instagram’s Community Guidelines, the best way to check is to open the app and log in to your account. From there, you can review the Guidelines and see if anything you’ve done goes against them. Keep in mind that Instagram can remove your account without warning if you violate their rules, so it’s always best to err on the side of caution.
Open Instagram settings
After you’ve logged in to your Instagram account, you’ll be taken to your Instagram Home page. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see five icons: Home, Search, Reels, Likes, and your Profile icon. Tap on your Profile icon to go to your Instagram profile page. In the top right corner of your Instagram profile page, you’ll see the ‘Menu’ icon (the three parallel horizontal lines). Click on the option to see your options.
A pop-up will appear from the bottom of the screen containing a lot of options like ‘Settings’, ‘Archive’, ‘Your activity, ‘QR code’ ‘Close Friends’, and so on. Tap on the ‘Settings’ and you will be redirected to the Instagram settings page.
Tap on “Account”
There are a lot of options after you enter the Instagram settings page: “Follow and Invite Friends”, “Notifications”, “Privacy”, “Security”, “Ads”, “Account”, “Help”, “About”, and “Theme”. You can also log out of your Instagram account from this section.
Scroll down the page and you can see the ‘Log Out option under the ‘Logins’ section. You can also add accounts to this section. Scroll up again and tap on the ‘Account’ option to progress.
Tap on “Account Status”
After clicking on the ‘Account’ option, another new window will open with more options. You can see options like ‘Personal Information, ‘Avatar’, ‘Language’, ‘Browser Settings, and more.
The options for your account’s general settings are over there. Find and select the ‘Account Status’ option from the list.
Check Account position (free of violation or not)
After tapping on the ‘Account status’ option, the main page will come up. If you haven’t done anything wrong on Instagram, meaning if you haven’t broken the community guidelines, it will show that you haven’t posted anything that is affecting your account status.
But if you have done anything wrong, you are unsafe. Instagram can block your account without any warning, so be careful before breaking the community guidelines. You can also learn ‘What is Account Status?’ from this page, which will increase your understanding of Instagram’s community guidelines.
