XX, we've made it easy to get back on Instagram
Sorry to hear you're having trouble logging into Instagram. We can help you get straight back into your account.
You can also reset your Instagram password.
There is likely someone unknown to you trying to gain access into your Instagram account. This person or automated Internet bot knows your email address (likely from somewhere you shared it) and tried performing a password reset through Instagram.
The person or bot may or may not have known you had an Instagram account, but is trying maliciously with your email and possibly other emails to see if a password reset link will generate with a registered Instagram account email. Unless they have access to your email account, they will not be able to perform the password reset and potentially gain access into your account.
Here’s what you should do if you received this email notice from Instagram and did not request a password reset.
2. You do not need to reset your Instagram password. We recommend logging into your Instagram account to ensure you still have access to it.
This is a known concern other popular Instagram accounts face on the Internet. We suggest creating a new and separate email for your Instagram (and all Social Media accounts) that is not common, hard to guess, and not publicly displayed anywhere online. Also, remove the contact by email feature in your Instagram account.
