Instagram account hacked? Here’s how to stay safe

Actress Tiska Chopra said on Sunday that her official Instagram account had been hacked.

Even though her account was compromised, Chopra was able to share a warning message with her followers.

“You need to know how much I enjoy communicating with you. I love to share my life, work and fun with you. Unfortunately, my account has been hacked, many of my posts have been deleted and my account has been mixed with a cybercrime cell.

Nice view on Instagram assured me it would be dealt with very quickly… and with drastic consequences for hackers,” he wrote.

Chopra told her followers, “don’t click on links or DMs” from her account.

“Safe to comment and like posts. #Wonderful week,” he added.

Actress Isha Deol and veteran singer Asha Bhosle were also victims of the hack earlier this year

How to protect your Instagram account:

Get two-factor authentication
Make sure your phone number and email address are up-to-date. Make sure the email and phone number associated with your device is included. Even if your data has been modified by hackers, you can use these steps to recover your account.
Instagram Won’t Send You DMs – Over the past few months, malicious accounts have been sending messages to people trying to access important information like account passwords.

They can tell you that your account may be suspended or that your photo has been shared on social media. Fraud is a common occurrence in these letters and is against our rules. Instagram will never send you direct messages (DMs).

Report content and accounts that you think are suspicious
Enable login requests – Whenever you enable two-factor authentication on Instagram, a device or browser we don’t recognize when someone tries to log into your account.

These instructions will show you which device is trying to log in and where it is. From a pre-registered device, you can immediately approve or deny the request.
