The terms indicate that the user is responsible for any activity that occurs in his own account and, therefore, Instagram reserves the right to terminate the service or limit access to the platform due to disregard for the rules. However, there are few content expressly prohibited on the network. Find out more about them in the list below.

2. Violence or discrimination
Scenes of violence of any kind against people, animals or even property are considered inappropriate by Instagram. Hate speech, discrimination against a specific person or group can fall into this category, as it is also a type of violence.
Similar to the point of defamation, harassment is not allowed in photos, videos or in comments. The act of spam is included in this item, that is, it is prohibited to publish the same comment repeatedly in the same photo, as a form of offense to the author of the publication. Unwanted commercial communications, such as a message box approach to selling products, are also not suitable.

Although Instagram is a network widely used by professional photographers who publicize their work, nudity is not allowed on the social network, even for artistic purposes. Anyone who publishes is liable to report and may have the content removed, in addition to the account suspended or temporarily banned. Likewise, any format of pornographic content, sex scenes, explicit or not is not allowed.
5. Commitment to privacy
Never try to compromise another user's privacy through Instagram. This can occur due to the proliferation of malicious information or dubious content that aims to expose the login and password of another user of the social network, or even their own login and password. This is considered identity theft and crime involving privacy.
