Instagram’s List of Blocked & Banned Hashtags Continues To Grow

on August 28, 2013 | Comments (2)

bhInstagram for some time has blocked certain words from their hashtag search in an effort to keep content and the experience across the site more user friendly to a large audience.

Here is the list of hashtags we have found to be blocked:

  • #sex – obvious why this is blocked
  • #handbra – women posting photos covering their nipples with just their hands/ arm
  • #kikmeboys – used by prostitutes on Instagram to find new clients
  • #thinspo – a hashtag that promoted people with eating disorders
  • #whitepower – used by racists groups
  • #popularĀ – used by people trying to become popular without a true following
  • #popularpage – used by people trying to become popular without a true following

There are many more terms that are banned on Instagram’s hashtag search.

Do you know of any that we should know about?
