If you had seen the following message when “Sorry, something went wrong creating your account. Please try again soon.” trying to create a new account on Instagram. Basically, what has happened is that your IP address has been used too many times for creating new Insta accounts. Or from this IP, there have been several logins to several Instagram accounts.
Alternatively, it can happen when you are using a VPN or proxy. Either Insta marks your IP as a bad proxy, or the IP from VPN or proxy has been used too many times for creating or logging into IG accounts.
How to fix this
There are several possible fixes, depending on what device you see this error.
If this has happened on your computer
