Fix: Instagram – Signup Blocked
If you are trying to register a new Instagram account on your mobile device (iPhone or Android), you may receive the following error message that prevents you from completing a new account when you get to the create username screen.
Sorry, you can’t create a new account right now.
Sorry, we couldn’t register you. Please confirm you have an internet connection and try again in a moment.
If you keep trying, you will not be able to register an Instagram account even through it tells you to wait a moment. More than likely, you have created a maximum amount of Instagram account already with your mobile device OR you have added the maximum amount of account tied to your Instagram app. No need to worry, simple create your account on a desktop computer – it will work fine.
- Go to the Instagram Sign-Up page.
- Create and sign up for an account the same way you were on your iPhone or Android. You will be able to use the same exact credentials (name, email, mobile number, and username if it is available) as you were before.
Instagram won't allow me to sign up on my android phone. It keeps giving me error cannot process at this time no matter what day or time I have tried. And I have tried diff days all week long now. No error info other than that appears. I get through all the way to allow name dob username confirmation code says all good etc then last minute it gives error.
This is nonsense, I can't open an account on any device because it asks for a verification code that it never sends. No idea why, no solution is offered.
i went on the desktop and it gave me the same problem. everytime ive ever tried to make an instagram, it did this.
I set up another account last Monday on my kindle and works perfectly ok and then something went wrong with my kindle and I have tried to do another account and my account details are right and they won't work . So please do something then I can get back on it immediately!!!
Yeah - I am having the same problem. Shit is pissing me off. I am attempting to create a new account for my youtube channel.
this is a huge annoyance.
I have the same problem. Is there no solution? I like other below have burnt through three emails trying to get an account.
I have tried to create an instagram account for 3 days but have totally failed. "All I get is, Sorry, something went wrong creating your account. Please try again soon". And when I try again it says, "email already exists" and "sorry that username is taken". I've tried with several email addresses, all ending up the same.
I got in touch with customer support and confirmed ownership of email address, only later to be sent a link back Help center, where I started the whole process of seeking help.
Could it be that instagram has grown so big that any new member trying to join is irrelevant to them?
I'm having this SAME problem. I've been trying to make my first Instagram account for the last 3 days, but all I keep getting are errors. And then they claim that the email and username are taken. I've already gone through two separate emails and usernames, and I really don't want to try again because nothing is seeming to work. Does anyone know how to get this resolved??
Thank you Phil. I have EXACTLY the same problem. This week I tried to register a second Instagram account for my small non-profit org. Same thing - reg never completes, and then the email and username cannot be used to try another registration. However the email returns "No such user" if you try "Forgot Password", and the username as well returns "No such username". Support is non-existent and I had the same circular reference "help" from support. Today I tried another totally different organization I work with and the same happened. I know Instagram is a hot property but I can't imagine them being successful for too long with these types of screwups. Someone else will figure out how to do what they do with some modicum of support. I'm walking away from them because it is just not worth this aggravation.
Hello everyone.... I'm trying since 3 days now to create another account and nothing to do still... same exactly like you guys. Did you managed to found a solution?!?!??! Can you help me also if you know how to do it, please?
hello, I have exactly the same problem.
I have already used 3 emails and afraid to try another time because I will block this one too.
Did you reach a solution for this ?
I tried on firefox and google chrome.
