So, you look into your Instagram Dms and you see an account named Instagrammer. Unfortunately, when you go on the account, it reveals nothing. You then started to wonder why they’re named Instagrammer.

What Does Instagrammer Mean


The term Instagrammer is a term used for people who use Instagram.

If you have DM’d someone in the past and their account has been disabled, you’re going to see the name Instagrammer instead of their name.

When their account is active again, the name Instagrammer goes back to their previous username.

Does Instagrammer in my DMs mean Someone Blocked me or Deactivated their Account?

When you see the name Instagrammer in your Dm’s, it means that the person has temporarily disabled their account. Temporarily disabling your account means that your account has been removed from Instagram until you activate it again.

When your account is disabled, Instagram changes your name to Instagrammer and this is what people see. If you see Instagrammer, it doesn’t mean that someone blocked you.

When someone blocks you, you can still see their account but not their photos. So, you’ll see their names in your DM, but you can’t interact with them.

When someone deletes their account, all their data is wiped from Instagram, therefore, you won’t be able to see their name anywhere because their footprint on Instagram has been wiped.
