order to enter an age-restricted profile on Instagram, you must pass the age
verification of your account. When you visit an age-restricted profile, you
must view or interact with content that requires age verification. Visit the
page of the relevant age-restricted profile. You will receive a notification or
warning requesting age verification. Tap an option like "Continue" or
"Confirm" to do age verification. On the age verification screen, you
will usually be asked to enter your date of birth or present your
identification documents. Enter the requested information correctly or upload
your identity documents. After you submit relevant information or documents, it
may take a while for Instagram to evaluate the age verification process.
Instagram has confirmed your age verification, return to the profile page to

However, when and how such changes occur is entirely at Instagram's discretion.
Age restrictions on platforms like Instagram are generally aimed at protecting
