We’ve just found out about an exploit within Instagram that allows accounts to be stolen. It is possible to change the email of vulnerable accounts and effectively take ownership. Luckily there’s an easy way to avoid this.
The fix is simple – link your account to Facebook!
We heard from a trusted source that they received an email from Instagram notifying them that their Instagram account’s email had been changed, when they tried to click the ‘if you didn’t do this click here’ link it lead them to a 404 error. So far they’ve been unable to reclaim the account.
Don’t let this happen to you – link your Instagram to Facebook!
