Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman902168 can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman902168's own words
I tried to open instagram and when I did it said it was temporarily locked and gave me this message "We've detected suspicious activity on your Instagram account and have temporarily locked it as a security precaution.**It's likely that your account was compromised as a result of entering your password on a website designed to look like Instagram. This attack is known as phishing.**Over the next few steps we'll ask you to verify your identity to help secure your account, and let you log back in."**I tried to get the code from my email, but nothing is showing up in my email.
