Now here in this article, I’m gonna try to figure out, how to save yourself from the hacking attack on Instagram.
If your account is already hacked then what are the best possible ways to get back your account?
How to avoid getting hacked from your Instagram account:
If you want to avoid hacking then it’s a personal recommendation for you to use a very strong Instagram password that is difficult to guess anyone.
You can use a combination of numbers, letters, and special characters.
It’s always a recommendation that you use a strong password at least 8-16 characters long.
Be careful while choosing the password, never use your own name, your wife’s name, any pet name, phone number, car number, etc.
These are easy to guess and your close one can guess your account details and can easily hack your account.
This type of attack is known as the social engineering attack, where a hacker guesses your password and can log login to your Instagram account.
You should use the two-factor authentication in your Instagram account.
As we all, are aware two-factor authentication is a way of protecting your account from being hacked indirectly even if you have the username and password of the account.
It will send a code to the registered phone number and ask you to put the code inside the box and then hit the login button.
You should avoid any third-party links to click.
Sometimes hackers use the phishing technique to hack your account.
Phishing is the way to create the same login or signup page as Instagram.
When you click on the link it will look like “your account is logged out” and you need to sign in again.
When you sign in again your username, email, and password will compromise with the hacker.
When you’ll click on the link make sure about the URL.
The URL should be www.Instagram.com.
If this is not the case then you should avoid putting the details close the browser and delete the email or message from wherever you received that link.
It’s the best way to stay away from hackers.
Even if the hacker knows your username and password, he/she can’t log in without the verification code sent to your device.
Make sure to use the registered email address on your account.
A registered email address is something that can help you get back to your account if your account is compromised by someone.
You can get back to your Instagram account either by your phone number or by your email address.
If your account is already hacked then you must need to calm down and need to take action for that.
If the hacker deleted everything from your Instagram account and changed everything like your username, email, phone number, profile picture, etc. still there is hope.
All you need to go to the Instagram official application and click on the forget password tab.
Now you need to click on trouble with the login tab and you’ll see a purple screen with some instructions on your screen.
Now you need to read out the full details and scroll down at the text box area.
In the text box area, you’ll find, it will ask you to explain your issue.
Now you need to explain everything about your account.
You can explain your previous username, name, email, phone, etc., but now it has changed into this and my account got hacked.
Explain everything whatever you have. It will help the Instagram team to reach you.
After submitting the request token, you’ll receive an email from the Instagram team and they will ask you to take a picture from your smartphone or iPhone along with that code written on paper and send it to them.
When you’ll do it the Instagram team will respond to you.
Responding time may vary.
You have to keep patience and keep checking your email again and again.
You’ll receive a link where you can change your password.
The hacker changed everything on your account, now you can get back everything to normal.
But sorry for the content you have shared and deleted by the hacker, it can’t get back.
Instagram always warn you that your detail has been changed.
When Instagram sends you a confirmation email that it was you that changed the details then make sure to revoke the process and get access to your account immediately.
If you miss that email and click on yes by mistake or it is also possible that hackers may delete your mail then you have the only option to go through the process.

If you have a PC then you have the option to report the issue on your laptop or PC.
All you need to do to a link to Instagram support.
After following the link, you’ll see a lot more options there.

This option is also suitable if someone impersonates your Instagram account and just creates a similar to your Instagram account.

Instagram usually takes time to respond so you must have to keep patience.
If there is not any response from the Instagram team then you need to consider repeating the steps again.
Don’t give up, keep trying and you’ll definitely get back of your account.
If you have a business account and your business account was hacked then you have the advantage to get back of your account from your Facebook page from where your Instagram account is linked.
It’s a recommendation that you attach your Facebook page to your Instagram account so that later when your account is hacked in the future you can get access from Facebook.
If you have signed up with Facebook then you can try to log in with your Facebook account also.
