Explore with confidence on Instagram!
This social media platform’s privacy and security features give you control over your account and personal data like Private Account, Remove a Follower, Access & Download Your Data and View your account data. Instagram’s community guidelines support a safe and open environment for everyone, encouraging users to report violations and abusive behavior.
Coming to the safety tools, if you have a large following on the gram, the social media platform will notify you to make sure that you’re keeping your account safe as it is under the risk of being targeted. Next, report support messages like IG asking for information or confirmation for contacting users because Instagram never DMs anyone about account issues.
In any case, if someone logs into your account from an unknown location or device, Instagram will send the user a notification to confirm if it was them or not. If it’s not them, reset the password as soon as possible.
Lastly to prevent hacking, turn on two-factor authentication, need to set up an email address, phone number or third-party app to help the social media confirm if it’s the user who is logging into the account from a new device for the first time.
If you have a larger following, we’ll notify you in app to make sure you’re keeping your account as safe as possible since you might be more at risk of being targeted. pic.twitter.com/rP58KeEdyd
