The issue in GetHuman-vinnycou's own words
I last had access to my Instagram on Friday Jan ** in the morning. I am in Peru traveling right now, so I am only using WiFi to access the internet on my phone. On Friday I traveled to a new spot in Peru where the place I was staying had WiFi, so I connected and everything was working on my phone except for Instagram. So I didn't think much of it until the next day when it still wasn’t working, so I was looking up ways to get around it. I restarted my phone, re installed the app, etc. I tried to log in to my Instagram on my dads phone, also on private browsing on my phone. I think the private browsing triggered a “suspicious login attempt”. The problem is that I do not have access to the email that I signed up with. I made the mistake of using a random email because my real email is already in use with my other account. I did not confirm an email, phone number, or connect with Facebook, so I have no way to access that account. That is why I am here. If you could just get the account unblocked so I can sign in again using my username and password. ***. Because I used a “fake” email (a non existing email), I do not know what it is. I simply typed a bunch of random letters on the keyboard. It’s something like this: *****@***.com. *My phone number is (***) ***-****. I used this phone to create the account, but I did not link the phone number to my account within the Instagram settings. I have an iPhone. ***. I had a previous username on the account that was also a random assortment of letters. I could not remember what exactly it was. I previously used the account as a second account just with an anonymous name. I have the password to the account. The account is new in the sense that it only has one video on it, it is of me surfing in Peru. I can confirm that this is me in so many ways, I just can’t provide the EXACT email that I used to make the account
GetHuman-vinnycou did not yet indicate what Instagram should do to make this right.
