Hi, I would like to know if there is today another way to get a brand name from an inactive account without spending on FB and talking to your Facebook account manager?
Thank you for your time and expertise 🙂October 15, 2020 at 11:11 am #11750MilesWeb
One of the solutions is to get the name trademarked so that you can file a copyright/trademark violation report and attempt to claim that the name is yours.
You can also wait for Instagram to purge the account. There’s no guarantee that the name will be purged from the Instagram account but it is possible that the username might become available again.October 15, 2020 at 11:34 am #11745GendalWeen
You ask the user and offer something.October 15, 2020 at 1:17 pm #11747ricerooroobunny
You don’t. You come with a name that no one already claimed.October 15, 2020 at 1:26 pm #11751Blue_Consulting
I have to agree with things below – it just isn’t going to happen.October 15, 2020 at 1:39 pm #11746deepp2905
If the user is inactive and it’s practically impossible to get that username, so what ai’d suggest is using a full stop (.) between your brand name if it has two words or adding .official
ahead of your brand name or maybe some other word depending on your niche.
There are certain tricks like using zero (0) instead of an O in the name too if that might help.October 15, 2020 at 2:49 pm #11743matthewleehess
White hat: I’ve only had luck taking over abandoned social account if it’s an exact match name for a trademark I’m representing. Additionally, the account has to have been abandoned for at least 12 months and/or posted content that could make consumers believe it is an official account of the trademark holder.
*Edit:* I have only gotten that to work, when communicating with an email address that is from an exact match .com domain name. So if the username was *@RandomWidgets*, I’m only going to get a response from customer service reps if I’m emailing from something like *[email protected]*
Grey/Black hat: You’ve got a few guesses at their password, before the account gets locked up. Try the username, try the username followed by “1!”, try the username backwards. Do not do this *before* reaching out to FB.October 15, 2020 at 4:33 pm #11753notoriousTED
there are companies that do this sort of thing for you, it’s expensive but they’ll get it for you.October 15, 2020 at 4:46 pm #11744m945050
125th option; locate the user and terminate with extreme prejudice.
126th option; don’t get caught.October 15, 2020 at 4:49 pm #11752redroverdover
As a regular Joe you have absolutely no way to get the name in a traditional sense.
You need to get a favor from someone.
And you will probably have to pay for it.October 15, 2020 at 5:00 pm #11749Junkstar
There’s a good chance that one of the first few people to follow the account is the account owner. Put your Columbo hat on and get to work.October 15, 2020 at 11:30 pm #11748RealityisPoison
You could reach out to someone who is their friend or tagged in pictures and have them tell the pissin irl
