Instagram Launches New Tools To Recover hacked Accounts
Instagram users can finally recover their hacked or forgotten accounts through the new tool online
Popular social media company Instagram has unveiled a much-needed Tools for users whose accounts have been hacked and become inaccessible with no way to get them back.
The Instagram.com/hacked tool reports and resolves problems accessing her account, even if the user has forgotten her password or lost her two-factor authentication information. The
account support page promises to recover hacked accounts, report impersonation, or recover forgotten passwords…
Hacking Instagram accounts is widespread, but there are limited ways for users to recover hacked accounts. A 2018 Motherboard report revealed how some users paid ransoms to hackers who took their accounts hostage. Another report from 2019 details how some users were forced to pay other hackers to rehack and restore their accounts.
Instagram users who are victims of hacking now have a new way to try to claw back their account. The company announced Instagram.com/hacked today, a new feature for reporting and trying to resolve account access problems.
The new platform is an all-in-one account support page. Users can ask for help recovering hacked accounts, report impersonation accounts, or get help if they’ve forgotten their passwords. The most pressing issue for many is likely getting help when an account has been hacked — something that users have struggled to get in the past.
Instagram announced earlier this year that it was looking at ways for users to restore their accounts, and launched a Tools to help at least two of her friends confirm their identities. The company also says it is looking for alternative ways to stop hacks altogether. Instagram’s mother Meta has ambitiously created a more robust customer service department to help users encountering account and moderation issues.
Meta has finally started building a more robust customer service department aimed at helping users who encounter account and moderation issues. Considering the scale of a platform like Facebook, which just added support for live chat last year, it’s perhaps surprising that it’s taken this long.
