So your Instagram got hacked. It only contains hundreds if not thousands of posts that you previously made, your hundreds, to thousands to even a million followers all over the world! It’s where some people contact you like your friends, families, and even your sponsors! Although that can be a really good reason to panic, all the more that you shouldn’t because there are actually ways to recover your account.
In fact, it should be a common concern among the millions of Instagram users. Especially if it’s an Instagram account that has a lot of followers and has been a platform where the Instagram owner has been making money. If you are one of these people that got their account hacked, there are a few things that you should do.
Recover and report: One of the things that you should do when you know that you no longer have access to your account is to try to recover it from the “forgot password” link. If that fails, contact Instagram and see what they can do to help with your issue. Make sure that you provide all the necessary information that they will need in order for them to be able to give you a proper resolution. The more information the better.
Gather the needed information and let other people know: If you have a lot of followers, make sure to let them know that your account has been hacked or you don’t have access at the moment (for some reason). That way they will be able to know what is going on with you and how they can help you. If you have other means to communicate with your sponsors add contacts in IG contact them as well to know about the situation, that way you are able to create new lines of communication especially if it concerns revenues and your revenue stream won’t get affected. This is also a good lesson for you in the future to keep contact details of the key people that are communicating in your Instagram especially your sponsors.
Find someone or something that can help you recover your account: If all else fails, you can try to hire a professional or find a tool that can help you gain access to your account like InstaEntry. But make sure that if you do, you have to investigate whether the person that you are hiring is legitimate or the tool that you are using is credible. Because there is always a concern that the people that you hired or the tool that you used will turn on you and that opens a door to hack your account again, especially if your account is worthy of being hacked.
Having no access or your account in Instagram doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. There are many ways that you can recover your account. But just in case, it’s better that you save your contacts especially your sponsors, and have good security build around your account.
