New and easier ways tested by Instagram to recover hacked accounts

Instagram is currently testing a new in-app account recovery process that will make it easier for you to recover your hijacked account. The new recovery process will make it difficult for hackers to fulfill their mission. According to the new recovery process, the app will ask you various information including your original phone number and email address. You will receive a six-digit code wither on your mail or phone number. This will help Instagram to stop hackers from getting into your account.

With the help of this process, you will be able to recover your account even if the hacker has changed your contact data and user name. Instagram is also providing a safeguard that will ensure that your username can’t be claimed for a period of time.

It is not quite sure whether the in-app recovery will be available to all or not. But the username lockdown feature is made available to all the android users. As far as iOS users are concerned, it is yet to be deployed. The main aim of the in-app recovery process is to help you recover your hacked account within the app. This means you can complete the process on your own. There is no need for you to rely on Instagram’s security team.

The number of hijacking cases has recently increased on Instagram. The new process cannot prevent hackers from committing the act but it can definitely help you recover your account. This may to some extent discourage the hackers from doing such things in the first place. With the help of this new in-app recovery process, the social network is trying to reduce the vulnerabilities. At the same time, it is also trying to improve the current recovery process.
