Help with my Instagram issue
GetHuman813551's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.
Instagram doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman813551 will need to dig through the advice provided by Instagram, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman813551 can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman813551's own words
just log in ... I have an instagram account (@kenzieespamz*) that has been blocked from logging in because of the error message: "We Detected An Unusual Login Attempt". However, the email address i used to create the account i do not remember the entire address and do not know the password for to retrieve the security code. I've been grounded for a while and got my phone taken away, but i've been accessing instagram through my Mac for a while, but every time i close my computer, it logs me out. No one else has tried logging in and no one else knows my password. Is there any way for you guys to allow me to log in and change the email address so that nothing like this happens again or at least just let me log in as usual?

GetHuman813551 did not yet indicate what Instagram should do to make this right.

I've looked through the instagram help center and tried to contact instagram via phone.
