If you’re planning to deactivate your Instagram account for while, think about it twice, as many users have noted that they are met with a “sorry there was a problem with your request” error while trying to reactivate their profiles.
A significant number of them have taken to Twitter to reach out to Instagram so they can have their accounts up and running again.
While Instagram hasn’t addressed the glitch, here are a few possible fixes for the issue.
‘sorry there was a problem with your request’ error explained
The ‘sorry there was a problem with your request’ error on Instagram occurs when your IP address is blocked by Instagram or server connectivity issues, according to Wealth Quint.
As several users have noted, they are facing a login issue while trying to reactivate their accounts after a brief period of deactivation.
This could also have resulted from a blocked IP address when the account was temporarily taken down.
Instagram Support on Twitter hasn’t shared an update on the same.
