How to get back a disabled/hacked Instagram account

If your Instagram account has been disabled or hacked, there are several steps you can take to try and get it back. Here are some steps you can follow:

  1. Try to reset your password: If your account has been hacked, the first thing you should do is try to reset your password. You can do this by going to the Instagram login page and clicking on “Forgot password?”. Instagram will send you an email with instructions on how to reset your password.
  2. Contact Instagram support: If you are unable to reset your password or if your account has been disabled, you can try contacting Instagram support for help. To do this, go to the Instagram Help Center and click on “Privacy and Safety Center”. From there, click on “Report Something” and follow the prompts to report a hacked or disabled account. Be sure to provide as much information as possible, including your username and any relevant screenshots.
  3. Provide proof of identity: Instagram may ask you to provide proof of your identity in order to verify that you are the owner of the account. This could include providing a government-issued ID, a photo of yourself holding a piece of paper with your username and a code provided by Instagram, or other identifying information.
  4. Be patient: It can take several days or even weeks for Instagram to respond to your request for help. During this time, try not to panic or create a new account. Keep checking your email for updates from Instagram and follow any instructions they provide.

In addition to these steps, it’s a good idea to take some preventative measures to protect your Instagram account from being hacked or disabled in the future. This could include using a strong and unique password, enabling two-factor authentication, and being cautious about clicking on suspicious links or sharing personal information online.
