Instagram Will Now Let You Know If Your Account Is Being Banned

Nothing about that policy is changing - rather, Instagram announced today that it is building upon it and will also start deleting accounts that get a certain number of violations within a limited time frame. From now on, Instagram will detect if you violate its policies, and warn you before disabling your account. In the past, users have reportedly had their accounts disabled temporarily for posting images that portray breastfeeding, nudity in art, etc.

The alert will also show users what kind of posts, comments and Stories that Instagram has removed from their accounts in the past, explaining exactly how they violate the rules of the platform.

Instagram's account disabling policies are now about to get far more transparent with a change to its account policies. If we talk about the past, Instagram has removed hundreds of such accounts who were not following the company's guidelines without any warnings. "You can still see your own likes by tapping on the list of people who've liked it, but your friends will not be able to see how many likes your post has received", Instagram wrote in a Twitter post.

'We've always given people the option to appeal disabled accounts through our Help Center, and in the next few months, we'll bring this experience directly within Instagram, ' said the company in a statement. In the beginning, only some types of content would be allowed to be appealed such as pictures removed for "nudity and pornography, bullying and harassment, hate speech, drug sales, and counter-terrorism policies".

I'll be honest with you: I do not know how to process these images, directed by Tom Hooper , and based on the famous musical. In this case, a tribe of cats called the Jellicles who have converged as cats rarely do at the annual Jellicle Ball.

The new changes are created to "quickly detect and remove accounts that repeatedly violate our policies".

Instagram has recently rolled out a good number of new updates, including its "restrict" feature and recently, the "like-hiding" feature.

The change will basically help the users exactly why they are in trouble.
