Help! My Instagram got Hacked!

No matter how careful we are, sometimes somehow we just manage to let our guard down and accidentally allow some insidious ‘element’ take control of our online asset.

Instagram, being a very ‘visual’ online media, is a heaven for hackers and you should always keep a leading antivirus software installed on your computer because if you don’t keep your vigilance, you will surely be vulnerable to their attack.

But it’s all too late, you had found out that your Instagram got hacked! Now what can you do to get your account back!?

How to get your Instagram account back when you got hacked

1. If you can still login to your account, login right now and immediately change your password AND your email address.

And while at this, you might as well change your email password at the same time, just in case the hacker got hold of your email too.

Sadly, Instagram doesn’t provide us with anything to report our account is hacked, anymore!

It’s basically the classic them of from bad to worst, for us users. And I’m really not surprised that is coming from Instagram

The only thing Instagram advise you to do is what they say on the following Help Page.

To me the advises Instagram gives in there doesn’t really have much.

The only way out is to try to get them to let you relogin again.

Failing all of these, I’m afraid to say that you’ve lost your account and unfortunately you just have to forget about it and start with a new one.

This time, please please take good care to secure it. Register with a proper and accessible email account, and don’t give away your account details to any third-party websites/apps.

2. If you are not able to login to your account at all, then you can try to report it to Instagram and start the process to recover your account.  You should answer the Q&A, write as much information as possible and submit the form.
