Hashtags Banned On Instagram

It is most likely total news to you....  or maybe you are one of those people who already knows everything about Instagram.... either way you need to make sure you read this list before posting anything on Instagram!

If you are serious about building you brand on Instagram then you know the importance of using hashtags as that’s how people find you account. 

For reasons we can't completely understand Instagram has banned many hashtags! All of this will sound a little crazy, as some of the hashtags banned on Instagram are completely innocent such as #books, #humpday and #gloves! 

Currently, there are over 114,000 banned Instagram hashtags!!!

Also consider that there are two types of banned hashtags:

  1. Completely Banned Hashtags:
    Instagram has 100% blocked users from using and searching these hashtags. Over the years these tags have been added to millions of photos, but if you search for these words, no results are displayed.

  2. Temporarily Banned Hashtags: 
    Instagram is regularly censoring hashtags. When searching for these tags it reveals only a limited number of "Top Posts", instead of a full set of results, followed by a message that reads:
    “Recent posts from #temporarily_banned_hashtag are currently hidden because the community has reported some content that may not meet Instagram’s community guidelines.” 
    We understand this implies that the censorship of these hashtags is only temporary. However, we can't say for how long as many of the hashtags on the following list have remained censored for at least several months.

I have found an EXCELLENT tool which is updated regularly and shows you most the hashtags to avoid. 

They highlight the "completely banned" hashtags with a red color

And the others are on this list that you should avoid. 

Here is a link to the list (We don't recommend using their app as it could also get your account banned on Instagram! But this list is a must read >> SEE HERE 

Important rules to remember:

  • Using banned Instagram hashtags could shadowban, block or penalize your account
  • Some hashtags might be banned forever and for no reason
  • At any time hashtags might be banned temporarily (so they might appear or disappear)
  • By using one banned hashtag, you could cause all your other hashtags to not work anymore
  • Before starting to add hashtags make sure you check they are not banned

Here is a list below of a good many of the hashtags. But see the full list here >>> SEE LIST OF BANNED HASHTAGS HERE
