How to Fix “Post Unavailable” on Instagram?

There can many reasons why you are seeing the unavailable message instead of seeing the actual message that the other has sent you on the platform. In this article, we have added the steps to fix the issue.

Post Deleted

If you and the sender are not able to see the original post but instead see an error message stating the post is unavailable then it means that the post has been deleted.

Hence, we suggest cross-checking with the sender if they are able to see the original post or not.

Post Archived

There are also chances that the original post was archived as Instagram lets users archive posts on the platform.

Once a post is archived, it will be hidden from the user’s profile and no one will be able to see it and you will see the “this post is unavailable” message if shared in a conversation and you can only see it again if the person unarchives the post.

Private Account Post

If the sender has sent you a post from a private account that you are not following then you will not be able to see the post and get the “post unavailable” message.

The reason why the sharer is able to share the post is that they are following the account. If that’s the case, you need to ask the sharer to take a screenshot of the post and send it to you.

Otherwise, you can also follow the private account in order to see the post.

Post Taken Down

If the post includes illegal content, hate speech, violence, etc that’s against Instagram’s community guidelines then Instagram will take down the post.

Hence, it might also be the reason why you are not seeing the post and getting the error message.

Deactivated, Blocked, or Age-Restricted

If the account is deactivated or deleted then all of its posts will be deleted and you will see the “post unavailable” message.

Also, if you are blocked, you will not be able to view the user’s posts.

There are also chances that the post might be age-restricted and that’s the reason why it prevents you from viewing unless you are 18 or above.
