What does “User not found” mean on Instagram?
The “User Not Found” error on Instagram means the user changed their username, blocked it, deleted their account, their account was suspended, or their account was disabled. If a user blocks you, a “User Not Found” error will appear when you try to visit their profile. similarly, if a user changes their username, deletes their account, or if their account is suspended/disabled, their profile will no longer be available on Instagram. Below are 5 reasons why you received an error message on Instagram.
1. Username changed
The first reason why Instagram says “User not found” is because the user changed his or her username. When someone changes their username, you can’t find them using the old username. Visiting someone else’s profile using their previous handle may have a “User not found” error. This is because their old username is no longer in use. Therefore, you need to search for a new personal username if you want to find them on Instagram. If you search for their old username, you will not be able to find them on Instagram. But if you happen to find them in search results using their old username, visiting their profile may have a “User not found” error.
To find someone on Instagram again, you may need to contact them. Ask them for their new username, and search for it on Instagram. Once you’ve done that, you should be able to visit their profile without receiving an error message.
2. You are banned
How to block someone on Instagram
Next, if you find the “User not found” error when visiting someone’s profile, there is a good chance you will be blocked. this is one of the most common reasons why you made a mistake. The most common reason for the “User not found” error on Instagram is because someone blocked it. if someone blocks you on Instagram, you will get the “User not found” error if you are still able to visit his profile. When someone blocks you on Instagram, you will not be able to find them on Instagram. This means that if you search for their username, their profile will not appear in search results. However, this is different if you send them direct messages, or if their profile is your last resort.
For example, if someone recently blocked you while you were sending them direct messages, their profile is still visible in your direct messages. But if you visit their profile from your direct messages, you’ll get the “User not found” error. Additionally, if their profile is in your recent search results, you will still be able to visit their profile. Similar to visiting their profile from your direct messages, visiting their profile from the latest will result in a “User not found” error again. All in all, there is a high probability that that person will block you if you find a “User not found” error when visiting your profile.
3. Account deleted
Third, the account may be deleted by the user. Whenever someone deletes their account, their profile will be gone, as well as all their posts. If you visit the profile of the person who recently deleted their account, you will see a “User not found” error. This means that their username is no longer available on Instagram. So, if you were to visit their profile, you would get the “User not found” error when they deleted their account. Once the account is deleted, it will no longer be available on Instagram.
However, if you send them specific messages before, or you have their profile at the latest, you will still be able to visit their profile. However, if you visit their profile, it will show a “User not found” error.
4. Account suspended
My Instagram account has been disabled Fourth, the account you want may be suspended/disabled. In other words, the account is permanently blocked by Instagram.

5. Disabled account
The last reason you got the “User not found” error when visiting a profile is that someone has disabled their Instagram account.
Disable account is temporary; in contrast to deletion. If someone disables their account, their account will be hidden from Instagram until it is re-enabled. When someone disables their account, their profile and their contacts and posts will be hidden. This means that their profile will be hidden on Instagram until they can reuse it. Therefore, if you visit the profile of someone who has recently been disabled, you will see a “User not found” error.
How can you tell if you’re blocked on Instagram?
If you are blocked on Instagram, you will not be able to search their profile. However, you can still visit their profile if you have sent them messages before or if they have recently. If you have previously sent messages to them, you can still visit their profile from your direct message list. But you will get “User not found” if you are blocked by them. Additionally, you can still visit their profile in case of your latest (Instagram search). Similarly, you will get an error if you are blocked.
