4. Not, In Case You’re Blocked

The scenario would completely be different if you blocked the person who had made that comment. Because, once you have blocked any user from your account, the likes and comments made by him will also be removed.

And the major point to make a note of is, that even if you unblock that person, you won’t get that comment back. It is permanently gone.

Blocked means nothing can be done to recover the deleted comments as the comments you have posted are removed.

Recovering permanently deleted Instagram comments is next to impossible. As it is completely gone from your account.

However, you can still try your luck. You can check from Google cache or any previous screenshot.

Google Cache will only work if you have deleted that comment from the Instagram web. Otherwise, if you could have used the Instagram app, then nothing can be done.

And in the case of the screenshot, it is luck.
