Instagram blocks thousands of users every day. If you are blocked and cannot access your account or use some function on the app, read this article to find out how to unblock Instagram with a proxy. But first, let’s find out if you really need an Instagram proxy.

Do you need a proxy to unblock Instagram?

Instagram issues various types of blocks. These might be action blocks when you are using some action too much. These are things like follow or unfollow action blocks, like blocks, and upload blocks. Some people even experience IG story swipe blocks when they skip too many stories in a row.

If you are experiencing an action (like, follow, etc.) block, you don’t need to use an Instagram proxy to unblock your account. What you need to do instead is do some other actions or leave your account without any actions for a couple of days. The action blocks will reset automatically and you will be able to use your account fully.

In case you are looking for a solution to a user’s block, you are out of luck, because the only way to access the profile of someone who’s blocking you is by creating a new Instagram account. But that’s just creepy. Don’t do that.

If you cannot access your account because of an Instagram ban, you need to create a new account. The problem is, the block has most likely flagged your IP address, so any new account will be very likely to get an Instagram block too. So what can you do about it?

Well, you need to use a simple online tool called a proxy. It changes your IP address, so Instagram doesn’t flag your new account. If you use several proxies, you can even register dozens of accounts.

To do this and more, you need high quality Instagram proxies, which are IP addresses that look like real desktop or mobile devices. Other proxies use data center IP addresses, which Instagram blocks very quickly. After all, data centers don’t usually have any social media accounts.
