Fix 3 – Non-existent link

There are a few possibilities where the problem can be caused by the link itself. We have discussed all of them, with a common resolution.

1. The link can be wrong or corrupt. In that case, you can’t open it up in the Instagram.

2. If the link leads you to the post or reel that has been deleted or removed from Instagram, the same message may show up.

3. Apart from these, if the link redirects you to a profile, that has been deleted or got the restricted access, you can see this prompt.

In all of these cases, you have to ask the sender to send a valid link.


Fix 4 – Link from a blocked account

If the link sends you to a content published from an account that has blacklisted your account, you can face this issue.

Step 1 – There is a way you can bypass this issue. Long-press the message and copy the link from the message.

NOTE – This will only work if the Instagram post privacy is set to Public. You can’t get access to private posts without logging into your account.

If the link redirects you to the Instagram app, you should uninstall Instagram from your device and then, try to follow this approach.

Hope these fixes have helped you!
