Instagram Banned Hashtags

As of April 2019, some of the hashtags banned on Instagram include #abdl, #bitches, and #cutegirls. Instagram temporarily or completely bans some hashtags if they're flagged for violating its terms and conditions. Sharing pictures or videos that infringe on others' copyrights, for example, leads to a hashtag being banned on Instagram. Below is a summary of Instagram's policy on banned hashtags including a comprehensive, alphabetized list of hashtags that are banned on Instagram as of April 2019.

METHODOLOGY

Before compiling the alphabetized list of current hashtags banned on Instagram above, we first searched through several databases and publications and scrutinized the different results we got. Most of the lists we found, however, were only summarized versions except for Instavast that offered a comprehensive list. Since Instavast is not a marketing agency but a web-based service for Instagram promotions and management, we opted to use this list as our source of banned Instagram hashtags.
Notably, some hashtags on this blog post were missing on Instavast's comprehensive list of banned hashtags, prompting us to counter check their status by manually searching on Instagram. We discovered that some of these hashtags are still visible in search results and are not currently banned by Instagram. For example, the #adultlife hashtag that was on the list of banned hashtags has 394,646 active posts on Instagram, some of which have been posted recently. Similarly, Instagram seems to have lifted the ban on the #americangirl and #beyonce hashtags which have 2,361,985 and 14,573,730 posts respectively. We concluded that since the previous blog post was written in January 2019, some hashtags on the list may have been temporarily banned at the time of writing but the ban has since been lifted.

Instagram's policy on banned hashtags

In an effort to control spam and bots, Instagram has put in place strict community guidelines that every user is expected to follow when sharing content. Breaking the community rules can lead to a temporary or permanent ban on some of your Instagram hashtags. A temporary ban can be reversed and mostly happens when content with a particular hashtag is reported for breaking community guidelines, while a complete ban is irreversible in most cases.

Continuously using banned hashtags generally leads to decreased engagement due to a shadow ban on your Instagram account. An Instagram shadow ban superficially hides hashtags from search results when a community rule is broken and is reversed once the error is fixed. The main reasons for banned Instagram hashtags include:
  • Sharing photos or videos that violate copyright laws. This includes sharing nude photos and advertising or selling sexual services.
  • Engaging in organized crime, terrorism, hate groups, and dealing in illegal drugs or firearms.
  • Instagram also bans hashtags that use bots to contact users multiple times with commercial offers.
  • Elevating self-inflicted injury or posting graphic content without a disclaimer.
