If your Instagram has ever been hacked, you already know how painful it is to lose all your media and memories while having absolutely no way of reaching out to anyone at Instagram to get your account back. And not to mention you have no way of telling your friends and family that the person soliciting them to purchase bitcoin is not, in fact, you.
What a mess.
Needless to say, Instagram users have been begging for some sort of customer service connection in the event of a situation like this and well, Christmas came early this year! Instagram has officially announced a new avenue to recover your account should it get hacked.
According to Instagram‘s statement:
“To support accounts that are experiencing access issues or may have been hacked, we created Instagram.com/hacked – a new, comprehensive destination people can rely on to report and resolve account access issues.
If you’re unable to log in to your account, enter Instagram.com/hacked on your mobile phone or desktop browser. Next, you will be able to select if you think you’ve been hacked, forgot your password, lost access to two-factor authentication or if your account has been disabled. From there, you will be able to follow a series of steps to help regain access to your account. If you have multiple accounts associated with your information, you will be able to choose which account needs support.”
