Help with my Instagram issue
GetHuman-ritchma'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-ritchma 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-ritchma can let us know if they help or not.
If time is of the essence or you are lost, we partner with a BBB-accredited US-based company that has live experts you can chat with about issues like this for roughly $20-45. Chat now with an expert.
The issue in GetHuman-ritchma's own words
My instagram has been hacked for three days now and I have tried contacting instagram in all kinds of different ways about it and it still has not been resolved. I don't know how the person is utilizing my account and that scares me. My posts and everything are still up but the person changed the username, email, and phone number. I've since then made a new account with my original username before the hacker changed it and I've followed everyone from my old one and let them know of the issue.*This is frustrating because Instagram support takes so long to deal with issues like these. It's kind of discouraging to have an account in the first place if theres a possibility you could be hacked and instagram doesn't do anything about it except have automated messages.*This would be resolved with me getting my account back as I had years worth of feed. If that cannot be arranged, I'd like it to be deactivated... if I can't have my own account back, I don't want anyone else to have it.*My original username was @kaylaritch and it is now @malolanimruth . I live in the U.S. and this person is apparently from Russia. I used my email *****@***.com for the account.*I've tried the help center, Instagram's email, and their phone number (which always goes straight to an automated message).
