Banned hashtags are hashtags that violate the Instagram community rules.

They concern pornography, verbal and physical violence, terrorism, hate speech.

Therefore, the platform hides publications containing banned hashtags in the descriptions or comments.

The photo with the banned hashtag in the description or comment is hidden under all hashtags used under the photo.

There are two types of forbidden hashtags.

Hashtags permanently banned, i.e. they will never go back to use.

Hashtags periodically banned, i.e. banned from time to time.

That's why you need to check your hashtags every time you post a new photo.

The hashtag you checked yesterday may have a different status today!
