Instagram Accounts Have Been Hacked and Hundreds Taken Over


Instagram seems to have been hacked and this is affecting a lot of Instagram users, leaving people locked out of their Instagram accounts.

Some of the users found themselves unexpectedly logged out of their Instagram accounts and were unable to log back in. The hackers successfully changed the Instagram account name passwords, profile pictures, and email addresses that are associated with a lot of users, with the new email address originating from Russia.

Profile pictures of the affected users have Instagram with Pirates of the Carribean photo and Instagram management have this to say;

“We are aware that some people are having difficulty accessing their Instagram accounts,” the company tweeted. “If you think you have Instagram, please follow our guidance to regain access.”

However, some of the affected users are still complaining that the guide Instagram provided to regain access to the hacked Instagram account has not been helpful to them so far.

“I’m concerned because my account has been taken over by the hacker – but I did not receive any email from Instagram whatsoever when my email was changed,” one Twitter user wrote to Instagram.
