The popular social media application Instagram, which has millions of users, has launched a new feature. The new feature will be used for stolen Instagram account recovery.
Instagram has introduced a new way for people who have lost access to their account. Now my Instagram account has been stolen, what should I do? The official and fundamental solution to the question came directly from the platform itself. The announced Instagram Hacked platform has been implemented as the first step in the process of recovering the stolen Instagram account.
How to Recover Instagram Stolen Account?
The platform made available by Instagram can also be considered as an all-in-one support page. People who have their Instagram account stolen can access the instagram.com/hacked support page here and start the recovery process by selecting the “My account has been hacked” option.
After the first step, Instagram asks you for username, phone number or email address to identify the account. Once you have entered the required information, you will be able to follow a series of steps to get your account back and gain access. Again, if you have more than one account, you can choose which account needs support.
Get Support From Your Friend to Recover Stolen Instagram Account
Earlier this year, Instagram began testing an account recovery feature that allows friends to vouch for hacked users in order to recover stolen accounts. This feature is now available to everyone. Users who do not have access to their account in account recovery will now be able to choose two friends to verify their identity.
The company also says it’s working on ways to stop account hacking before it happens, including sending alerts about suspicious accounts that could be impersonating someone else. More broadly, it looks like Meta is finally starting to build a more robust support section aimed at helping users facing account and moderation issues. As you may recall, Meta added live chat support to Facebook last year.
