If you have problems accessing your account on Instagram, you should know that it may have been hacked. The social network experiences a sudden increase in the theft of profiles, indicating a possible coordinated action by cyber criminals, still without clear motivation. Fortunately, it is possible to recover a hacked account and in this tutorial TechTudo learns the procedure.
It is worth noting that recovery works in most cases, but it depends on how much information the hacker has changed in your account – if only username and e-mail address were changed, as is often the case, you can redeem profile over the phone. In addition, other security measures must be taken to prevent attacks from being carried out, such as creating a strong password, enabling 2-step verification and withdrawing access from third-party apps.
