What could happen if you use banned Instagram hashtags in 2019?

The repetitive use of banned hashtags will alert Instagram’s bot-finding algorithms to flag your account. For example, if you use the hashtag #adultlife, not only will your post most likely not show up for that hashtag, you might also be flagged for spam. Multiple flags could result into shadow banning or account removal. Shadow banning in simple terms is somewhat secret, meaning a lot of users won’t even know its happening. You will be able to post content but your content will receive fewer likes and comments, or aren’t appearing in hashtag searches at all.
