I just got my account back from an artificial ban, and whenever I try to log it displays
“Help us confirm you own this account”, and the only choice available is sending a code to my phone number of 5 years ago (that has been deleted)…
Is there any way I can bypass this? I have access to the original e-mail, and already contacted the mobile company, which said that the number is inaccessible…
The only way now is to contact support and hope for the best.
Unless your phone number being inaccessible means that the number was recycled and is now being used by someone else then there are two options. One is extremely illegal and the other one would make the phone number owner able to steal your account at any time so there aren’t really any good news here, sorry.
There’s no way to bypass that. You will need to contact Instagram through the Support request form. Check out the link shared by Luca above.
If you don’t have access to the form, you can try contacting FB Ads Support and getting their help through live chat. You need a FB account that has run ads before in order to contact them via live chat.
