Instagram asking for ID

Hi everyone, I just logged into Instagram and there was a popup asking me to verify my account by providing an ID. Has anyone else seen this, please? Thanks in advance for your answers to the above.

Sounds a little suss to me.
I wouldn’t be providing any ID…

Thanks as I was wondering if it was legitimate or not. I was thinking that maybe Instagram has decided to check IDs and if so, I wouldn't be complying anyway. I should have taken a screen print before closing the popup.

This happened to hubby a few months ago. They asked hubby for ID. Hubby did send his ID, but Insta still cancelled his account. So be aware that you might lose your account.
We thought that hubby's account was cancelled because he has a name similar to a famous singer and was using his pic in his profile. But the ID matched the exact name he was using on Insta, so for him the only thing that didn't sit right was using a famous person's pic.

Using someone famous' photograph would be considered impersonation. Regardless if you had the same name.

I understand that, but they could've just asked him to take down the photo instead of asking for ID then cancelling his account.

Especially when Facebook fully support actual scammers who really are outright pretending to be a famous person when you report a fake page

Nope, that's fine, not against community standards at all

I've logged in again today and haven't seen any popups so far again. I noticed that I was following close to 3K people (due to the competitions over a few years) and was attempting to cut down the numbers but can only do so gradually as if I bulk delete then I will be investigated.
