Exceeding action limits.

Instagram is constantly improving algorithms that are struggling with accounts promoted by prohibited methods (mass follow, wrapping, etc.).

If you exceed the limits for subscriptions, likes, messages and comments, your account is temporarily blocked.

Because of this, the error “Action is blocked” appears.

The solution is that you don’t need to do anything, just wait. The lock will disappear itself (waiting time – from 2 to 30 days).

If you’re using automated promotion services, untie your accounts (this will help speed up unlocking).

There are many different instructions on thematic sites, such as “re-authorize”, “log in from another devices / ip addresses “,” try to restore your account “, but in 2020 all this is irrelevant in the year.

Do not exceed Instagram limits (stay tuned articles).

Now Instagram blocks the account for any suspicious activity, follow the mass as before.

Subscribe too often? Ban. Place an excessive amount likes? Ban. Do you comment a lot and monotonously? Ban!

Tip: you can promote your Instagram account using white methods (see in the article).

Not always an error is associated with prohibited methods advancement.

Solution – log in to your account with another device (for example, log in to the web version via computer) and connect Instagram to Facebook.
