Instagram action blocks are temporary – not permanent. Blocks can last anywhere from a day to over a week. In most cases, they disappear within 48 hours or after taking certain steps (about which you can read later in this article).
How long does action block last?
Action blocks usually last from 12 to 48 hours, but sometimes they can last for up to two weeks. If that’s the case and you don’t want to wait that long, you can start growing another account while you’re waiting to get unblocked.
What happens when Instagram says action blocked?
Instagram blocks users engaging in spam activities for a particular period of time and shows them the “Action Blocked” error message. If you are seeing such a message, then it means you have violated their system and you have been blocked from performing basic tasks such as liking/commenting on people’s posts.
