You can use this feature when your account is compromised by malicious people when you are annoyed by someone, when you see spam accounts, or when you want to provide feedback or suggestions about the application.

To report a problem on Instagram, just go to the Help Page and report it!

Even if you do this from the application, it will redirect you to the web page.

Because you cannot do this through the application, you can do it only from the official Instagram website’s help page.

      The ”Something Went Wrong” error usually occurs when logging in. Are you having a login problem or does Instagram show you the same error when you try to unrestrict your friend?

    Unfortunately this information doesn’t help the people receiving an “Oops, an error occurred” message while trying to log in. There’s no way to contact Instagram in that instance.
