    Find and press the Instagram tile to open the application.

If the Instagram tile is not pinned to the home screen, swipe left and find it in the apps menu. We want to demonstrate how to block a contact when using this application. To do that, we much first find the individual we would like to block.

Questions and Answers

Why does my Instagram ask me for a code?

I don't understand this. My Instagram asks me for a code. I have tried: nothing.

This is a security measure to verify that the owner of the account is accessing the Instagram. The code is sent to the phone number registered when filling out the Instagram profile. The problem can be that this phone is inaccessible or the carrier might not allow SMS messages or block incoming short-code numbers. If that is the case, look for any options like "I am having trouble signing in" or an option to enter a new phone number. If nothing can be done, then log in to Instagram from your computer or an iOS or Android device. You can then use your friend's or relative's phone number from another carrier or an online phone number from a web site like http://receive-sms-online.com. Use the phone number without the plus sign and check the SMS message on the web site. Enter the security code into the Instagram application. Be sure to update your phone number in Instagram in "options" > "edit profile". Under "Private Information", change the number with your new phone number.

In the worst-case scenario, you will need to contact the Instagram team. There is no support email address, so you will need to register or use a Facebook account. Contact Instagram at https://www.facebook.com/InstagramEnglish. Click the "Message" button to post your problem.
