As instagram has become the best platform for influencers, brands and users, it has become an ideal target for hackers
where we are witnessing a frustrating identity theft with the sharing of photos, profiles, information…etc
Especially since the procedure for retrieving his profile can be complicated.
the cause of this great wave was in most cases a phishing operation, i. e. these hackers would therefore imitate Instagram’s interface to steal the identifiers with their passwords.
In front of all this, how to secure your account?
To properly protect your account, it is recommended to increase the security of your account to do so:
-You must choose a strong password (with letters, numbers and special characters);
-On the settings, activate double authentication (2FA), this method allows you to be informed in case of an attempt to connect to your account by confirmation SMS that will be sent to you. Impossible for the hacker to connect to your profile without the code sent by text message. so double authentication is very important especially if you have a business profile.
it is imperative to quickly change your password via the application.
-Make sure you always go through the official instagram website or by application.
-Do not rely on any email asking you to enter your Instagram ID and password
-Never enter your username and password on the sites: Buy subscribers, likes, free trial… it’s the hackers’ favorite tool!
-Block users you don’t like
-Manually approve the posts in which you are tagged
Be careful! Be careful!
