GetHuman-lynnmg's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.
Instagram doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-lynnmg will need to dig through the advice provided by Instagram, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-lynnmg can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman-lynnmg's own words
I blocked an Instagram user. The users account name showed up on my profile under my "blocked user". On April **, the blocked users name shows up on my profile. On April **nd and thru today the users name is gone. I try to search the name but it does not come up even if I use a friends Instagram account to search. Is this users account deleted? Or is this account temporarily disabled? *Second question: will this blocked users "like" show up on their followers page? For example, Bettybob is who I blocked. Bettybob followed susanlee. Susanlee's account no long shows Bettybob as a follower or following. HOWEVER, when you click on a photo that susanlee posted she has * likes. You click on likes to see the users that liked the post. You count the users names and there are only * listed. Is this because Bettybob liked it at one time prior to them deactivating or deleting their acct? Please help me understand. Thank you.
