Instagram hacked? See how to check accesses on your mobile account | Social networks

The Instagram app allows users to check all accesses made to their account. Available in the Web version, for iPhone (iOS) and Android smartphones, the feature displays the dates and times of recent accesses on the screen. In this way, just check if the entries were made by you or if there is no login made on your devices.

When checking dates and finding unauthorized access to your account, quickly initiate security procedures to ensure that your data, photos and videos are not stolen or deleted. In such cases, we recommend changing the password to prevent the person from maintaining access to the profile. Check out the tutorial to learn how to identify intrusions in your Instagram account.
