Is buying & selling Instagram accounts illegal?
Since the beginning of Instagram, accounts are being bought & sold by their users. People usually start an account in a niche they have passion for & at some point they want to cash out & make some money with it. But there is still confusion wether it’s legal or illegal to buy & sell Instagram accounts. We will explain you in this article why there’s confusion about it.
The difference between bought followers/likes & accounts
Some people still don’t understand the difference between bought followers & likes vs bought accounts. When you buy likes or followers, you will gain absolutely nothing but just some numbers. You will only see the numbers of likes & followers go up, but it’s not beneficial for your account. In fact, buying followers or likes is very bad for your account. Your account will end up being shadowbanned & pushed down in the algoritm of Instagram. In the end, it’s all fake. We don’t support buying likes and followers. When you buy an account, which is what we sell on our website, you will get genuine & active followers. For example, when you buy a makeup account with 50k followers, you will get an Instagram account with 50k real followers which would be interested in buying makeup products. That’s super valuable for makeup brand owners (or individuals). You won’t have all the hustle of getting followers, you will have them from the start.
Illegal or not?
So the question is, is it illegal to buy or sell Instagram accounts? The answer is: no, it’s not illegal to buy or sell Instagram accounts. However, it is against the terms of services from Instagram to “buy, sell, or transfer any aspect of your account (including usernames) or solicit, collect, or use login credentials or badges of other users.”
