Password recovery is one of the toughest jobs of the Instagram users, as there are not many ways to recover the account in case of a lost password or no access to the email address. But according to Instagram, they are testing the new methods to allow users to recover the hacked or lost account quickly. The users who lose access to the valuable Instagram accounts will soon have another more comfortable option to recover the same within a few minutes, says the report published by the popular Media agency, Motherboard.
The high profile users of Instagram always fall prey to the hackers when they use the Phishing links to log in to the platform and then the account is hacked. To such users, Instagram is testing a new method for getting back the access and ensuring the hackers won’t be able to hack the account again. The method involves the registered email address or phone number. The users have to enter the registered phone number or email address to receive a six-digit recovery code to gain access to the account. If the hacker has access to the phone number and the email address used at the time of registration, the Instagram will prefer the most used device than the new device that is used to access the account, helping you recover the account even when you don’t have access to the email or phone.
The same method will be applicable for the users, whose usernames were changed after a hacker gets access to their account. According to the company, they are implementing the system which restricts the users from performing crucial changes to the account after changing vital contact information from the account. Instagram is currently testing this method with a bunch of high profile users of the platform, and it is expected to release next month or later.
