How Many Times Can I Report an Instagram Account for it to be Deleted?
Reporting an account is just one part of the coin and this part totally belongs to you but deleting an account is the other part of the coin which belongs to Instagram and they make the final decision.
Deleting an account does not depend on the number times you or other Instagram users report the account, rather it depends on if the reason violates Instagram terms and conditions.
What Happens when I Click on Report on Instagram
When a user click’s on the report button on Instagram, it generally takes 24 hours or more to review a report and verify if the account you are marking as spam or inappropriate is really what you said it is.
After the verification, in most cases, the site send’s a warning message to the user about their termination policy. However, if the case is considered to violate the security policy, of the company, the account will be deleted even if its a single report(For new accounts, this is usually instantly).
Note: It is important to make sure you report an account for a strong reason as Instagram will also check the account of the reporter.
