Help with my Instagram issue
GetHuman-zphotola'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, GetHuman-zphotola 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 GetHuman-zphotola can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman-zphotola's own words
I received an email just after midnight PST on Wed. June ** stating that my password had changed. It said if I hadn't done this to reset the password. When I followed the link to do this on Instagram, it kept saying there was no email or username, that I was inputting, associated with an account, but they were the correct ones I have always used. Then I saw it said I could sign in with Facebook, so I thought maybe that would work so I clicked that option & it created a new account under my actual name I did not want. Then I tried to search for my old username to see what it might show- Vikkiz* and there was nothing it could find. However, when I talked to one of my daughters, out of state, she was able to find all my pics & homepage, but it said Vikki Z under the main part, but above that it had a compmetely different name. How can I get my original account back with all my pics, messages and connections with who I follow & who follows me? I need to get rid of the new one that I accidentally created & have my old one with all my contacts, followers and followees back. I had direct messaged people and was waiting for some information. Why would someone want to mess with my account like this? They havent posted anything, they just made it so I can't access it(my daughter is keeping her eye on it for any activity by the hacker)...please help! My username was Vikkiz* and it was linked to my email at *****@***.com. (note: this is a different email then the one I put in for Instagram to contact me below) Please help me reclaim my account & get rid of the new one I dont want in my full name. Thank you! ***-***-****
