Reclaim your hacked account with Instagram's Recovery feature

If you had an Instagram account which for some reasons it was hacked, then you don't need to worry about losing it forever. A new feature is currently being tested by Instagram will let the users to reclaim the hacked accounts and restore it back with a new recovery feature.

Instagram’s idea is to shift away from email correspondence or support forms, instead relying on answering specific questions from within the app. That includes offering up important information tied to the account, like the original email address associated with it, or the phone number tied to the account.

Fill out the information and Instagram will send out a six-digit code to the device of your choice. Once that’s done, Instagram will then prevent hackers from using an email code or phone number from breaking into your account through a different device.

The user name “lockdown” is available beginning now for Android users, and it’s rolling out to iOS users soon. However, it remains unknown at this point when the in-app recovery options will make a widespread debut.
