Many people face this dilemma, and we think it is the easiest to solve. Luckily for you, it is only 3 steps, in order to initiate the recovery process.

We found out that you can do this method without sending any ID, we highly recommend that you send your ID to Facebook/Instagram in order to get yourself a higher chance of taking back your account. It will take around 24-48 hours to respond, usually.

3. Recovering a Business Account

If you are trying to recover your Facebook or Instagram Business account, this way will make sure you get it back. It is as quick as recovering a personal account, but you will need more vital information.

For a social media business account, you will need documents such as proof of business ownership and a government ID with the appropriate individual that is in the documents provided. Make sure to have an email in the documentation as well, in order for them to put that email as an admin.

4. Recover Instagram Account without Email or Facebook

This option to recover your IG account with an email or Facebook is available only for the latest versions of the application so it will be necessary that you update the Instagram app on your phone. This method may be the easiest out of them all, which is how to recover your Instagram’s password without an email or Facebook.

What you can do is just put your phone number on the password recovery screen. Once you have entered your phone number, you will receive an SMS with a link to recover your password. However, it is important that, when you created your profile on Instagram, you have put a real phone number to which you have access. Once you get that text from IG, make sure you follow the simple instructions and you will have your account recovered!

5. Contact Facebook Support to Recover Account

One of our full-proof methods that will work. We have used this on a few clients that needed to get their business account repossessed by a former employee or someone that has hacked their account.

This method 95% of the time works for business accounts, but we have a method for personal accounts as well!

(You will only need $5.00 if you have an active Ad account or have used any type of advertising on Facebook or Instagram).

#1. First, you will need to have a Business Instagram account. If you do not have one, make a new account and switch it over to a business account. Be sure to make the newly made account alive, meaning put some pictures, make a simple bio, have a profile picture, etc.

#2. With your newly made Business IG Account you have to run an ad. The simplest way to do this is to select one of your posts and “Promote” it. When doing so, it will ask you to connect your IG to your FB Account. You will need to do this, or you won’t be able to run an ad. By connecting them, it automatically creates a FB Ad Manager account.

#3. When you have started promoting your ad, let it run for a couple of hours. Check back on your ad to make sure there are some statistics if there are then you are good to go. Your ad needs to be running, if it is not, you will not have access to the Facebook Chat feature.

What can I do if my Instagram account has been disabled? (from Instagram)

If your Instagram account was disabled for no reason or accidentally, you’ll see a message telling you when you try to log in. Accounts that don't follow Instagram's Community Guidelines or Terms of Use may be disabled without warning. We suggest that you review the Community Guidelines thoroughly along with the posts on all accounts you've created. Keep in mind, IG may permanently remove an account that repeatedly violates the Community Guidelines or Terms of Use.

If you think your account was disabled by error, you may be able to appeal the decision by opening the app, entering your username and password, and following the on-screen instructions.

If you don’t see a disabled message, you may be encountering a login problem. If your account was removed by you or someone with your password, there's no way to restore it. You can create a new account with the same email address you used before, but you may not be able to get an identical username.
