So you want to create an account, but can’t do so? There are a few reasons that you may not be able to create a new account. Mostly Instagram does not allow you to create an account, however, there are other reasons as well. Let’s go over all the reasons and find out what can cause this frustrating thing and see how we can fix it.

Here you can see a list of all the possible reasons and how to fix them.

  • Network Problems

Connection or network problems can be one of the many reasons that you can’t create a new account. Sometimes you may have a connection problem, yet you are not aware of it. So make sure the connection is stable. Also, switching between a Wi-Fi connection and a mobile data connection can sometimes fix this problem.

So if you are using a Wi-Fi connection, switch to a mobile data connection, and if you are using a mobile data connection change that to a Wi-Fi connection and see if the problem goes away.

  • Your IP Address Has Been Blocked By Instagram

Probably you already know all the craziness related to Instagram. In many circumstances when a user violates one of its rules, then the app blocks the person’s account. Sometimes it is temporary sometimes it is permanent and sometimes even the whole IP address related to the device will be blocked by Instagram. 

 I’m trying to let you know that this can be also one of the reasons. Make sure your account has not been blocked by Instagram. If this is the case, creating a new account with a new device would be the way to go.

  • Your Email Address Has Already Been Used For Another Account

According to Instagram, you can create up to 5 different accounts with the same email address. So if you have already made 5 accounts, then you can’t create any more with the same email address. I suppose this case can be one of the main reasons that Instagram doesn’t allow its users to create another account. 

So if this is the case simply try to use another email address while signing up.

  • Your Email Address Has Been Blocked

Like the IP address that I talked about, your email can also be blocked by Instagram. It’s easy to guess if this is the case or not. For example, if you have not done anything wrong and you can use your current Instagram account then you’re email address has not been blocked. 

However, if you think you have done something wrong in the app, then make a new email address before you start to sign up.

  • Your Phone Number Has Been Blocked

It’s so crazy that Instagram can block whatever it wants to. Once I’ve been blocked too, I can feel how painful it is, especially when you have done nothing wrong! 

Anyway like IP and email addresses that can be blocked, phone numbers can be blocked as well.

Again make sure you have not been blocked or have not done anything wrong. If your phone number has been blocked, then try to use a new number when signing up. 

  • The Server Is Currently Down

Sometimes the Instagram server is down and that’s why you can’t create a new account. If this is the case, then you can wait for like a few minutes or so and then try again.

  • Your Instagram App Is Not Updated

If you are using an old version of the app, then you will probably face this issue. When you run an old version, also the server on Instagram may not respond correctly. All in all, using an outdated version will affect the overall performance of the app and you don’t want this.

So simply update your app and try again later and see if the problem goes away.

My Best Recommendation To Fix This Problem 

If you’re still having an issue and can’t create a new account simply do this. Use a new device, a new email address, and a new phone number and I’m sure the problem will be fixed. Also, don’t forget to use a VPN as well!
