Instagram has started testing a new feature that will tell you “when something goes wrong on Instagram. The test will be limited to the U.S. and could go on for the next few months. Instagram might roll out the experiment more widely “if it makes sense to.”
Instagram is also rolling out a new tool called Account Status, a “one-stop shop to see what’s happening with your account and content distribution.” Initially, users will only be able to know whether their account is at risk of being disabled from the Account Status page.
In the coming months, Instagram plans to add more information to the tool, including how their content is being distributed and recommended across the platform. Users will also be able to submit an appeal from the Account Status page by hitting “Request a Review.” More details about these new features will be shared over time.
