Our Instagram is deactivated again!
Last year, around the same time (October 2020), our account was disabled for the first time. The second time was the day before Black Friday, November 25th, 2021 around 5:30 pm. Our team was excited for our Black Friday Sale and getting ready for it when we were suddenly disabled from the IG world. On Friday December 17th at 6:07pm it was deemed a mistake on the account.
Now the third, and final time (fingers crossed) On Wednesday April 14th 2022 at 9:34pm, We received notice of deactivation of our account. This ban came with no notice, except on Tuesday, April 12th 2022 at 9:27pm. We got locked out of our account for 24 hours due to “suspicious activity”.
Here is a reminder of what to do if your account is disabled.
Instagram has three different links, one for intellectual property violation, one for mistakenly deleted accounts, and one for violating their Community Guidelines.
Here are the links:
You believe your account has been disabled due to repeat intellectual property violations or for sharing fraudulent or misleading content. Here is the direct link.
You believe your account was deactivated by mistake. Here is the direct link.
Your account was deactivated for not following Instagram's Community Guidelines, and you think this was a mistake. Here is the direct link.
If you don't know why your account was deactivated (this is a recurring issue for many), we recommend using form number 2. It can take as long as weeks or as little as 24 hours to recover your account. It all depends on your specific case and other factors on Instagram's end. We are currently waiting for an answer to get our account back.
We can't wait to go back to your IG feed with our main account. In the meantime, follow us on our backup account @luxedujour2 for new arrivals and updates. You can also join our email list and be the first to receive updates and special deals.
If you have gone through a similar situation, we would love to hear from you!
