If Instagram keeps saying error feedback required while trying to log in to your account, there are a few fixes that you can try.
A lot of Instagram users have been complaining about being locked out of their accounts because of the feedback required error. In some cases, users thought Instagram deleted their accounts for no reason.
Luckily, there are a variety of solutions that can help you to resolve the issue and we are going to explain them all in this guide. So, let's get started!
What does error feedback required mean on Instagram?
"Error feedback_required" on Instagram means that there's an issue with the action being performed, and additional information is needed from the user to resolve it. It typically indicates a potential issue with account security or suspicious activity.
When you receive the "feedback_required" error message on Instagram, your IP address will be banned as a security measure. Typically, the feedback required error on Instagram last for 24 hours, but it could also take longer than that.
In a way, the feedback required error is similar to the "Please wait a few minutes before you try again" error on Instagram where Instagram temporarily blocks your access to the site for performing a similar action too many times in a short period of time.
In both cases, Instagram blocks your IP address only not your account from accessing Instagram servers. That means you can get around the feedback required error by using a different IP address.
