I’m having an issue with my IG, I keep getting a pop up every few days telling me that IG can’t verify my location and that they have to limit my reach because for accounts with large followings they have to verify the location of the account. They are asking me to turn on location services in my phone settings, which had already been turned on forever. I had this issue once before and after weeks and weeks they finally confirmed my location but then after I deleted and reinstalled the app I’m having the same problem now and my reach has been very limited (sorry for the longwinded question, I just smoked something ). Have any of you experienced this / any idea how to fix it? Couldn’t find anything online on this.
This is interesting. I haven’t seen this yet, seems like its a new verification thing.
I’d imagine you could use a location spoofer to match what the account says if you’re desperate.
But if you are in the Country/Region the account is in, just enable your location services on your device & let them fetch your location.
Thanks for sharing this!
Worth keeping in mind in case I notice some engagement numbers slip on my accounts so I can check for this.
But are they only enabled for your device or also for Instagram? You can have your location enabled but still apps ask you if it can use your location (just like they ask if they can access your camera roll for photos), which is why I am saying that if you go in the settings of your phone and go to Instagram, you can check to see if it can access your location. When you redownloaded the app it might have changed the settings for it, so just check it just in case.
That’s certainly a weird notification, which sucks. I wonder if it’s due to using proxies previously located across the globe for hardcore automating. Are you sure you’re not logged in to another service elsewhere or a proxy somewhere far away?
Beyond changing GPS settings as suggested, I can’t even imagine what else would trigger that
i can see that the first message says “We’re asking accounts that reach a lot of people to confirm the country/region…” did you had a viral video or post in the last days or did you buy some engagement?
