How to Unrestrict Someone On Instagram 2022

Instagram offers you several ways to limit how a specific user can interact with you on its platform. Restricting an account is one such feature on Instagram. It prevents them from knowing when you read their messages or when you are online.

A restricted account’s comments on your posts are visible only to that person unless you decide to approve them.

You always have an option to unrestrict an account you restricted earlier on Instagram. Unrestricting an account will remove all the limitations outlined above.

In this article, we’ve covered how you can unrestrict someone on Instagram.
