I have been inundated with messages from friends and colleagues whose Instagram accounts have been hacked. It is seriously troubling, and causes so much grief. So, I thought this would be a good time to share a simple security check tutorial that outlines two things you can do to prevent getting hacked.
Anti-Hack Tips for Instagram:
1. Check your current sessions (where you’re logged in)
This is often overlooked, but it’s an easy thing to do to keep your account safe. And it’s a good idea to do this check from time to time, to ensure you don’t have any unauthorized Instagram logins.
2. Turn on 2-Factor Authentication
Yes, it’s a pain in the butt! However, using an authenticator app (I like – and use – Google Authenticator) makes it easy-peasy. You won’t mind the occasional extra step if it means not getting hacked! Trust me when I say, it’s worth the effort.
Do YOU currently have 2-Factor Authentication turned on? If not, will you do it today? Let me know in the comments below.
