How do I report a message that was sent to me or stop someone from sending me messages on Instagram?
You can report abusive photos, videos and messages that are sent to you on Instagram:
- Open the conversation in the Instagram app.
- Tap and hold the individual message you'd like to report.
- Tap Report.
- Select a reason for why you're reporting the message and then tap Report.
If you'd like to report a post from Feed that was sent to you in a message, you can tap the post and report it. If you want to stop someone from sending you messages, you can block that person or report their profile.
Instagram reviews up to 30 of the most recent messages sent in reported conversations that involve accounts based in the European Union.
Keep in mind that your report is anonymous, except if you’re reporting an intellectual property infringement. The account you reported won’t see who reported them.
