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

The issue in GetHuman-kkostel's own words
My organization's Instagram account suddenly began demanding a security code from our social media team to sign in. The account is connected to my email address at work and to a phone number of one of my co-workers that she no longer owns. I requested a security code be sent to my email address, but nothing arrived. We've talked to IS here at my organization, but nothing has come through from Instagram and nothing has been blocked by our spam filters. I've sent numerous requests for help through their online help center, but have received no response. The instructions Instagram posts for what to do in this situation are either out-of-date or just plain wrong, as they reference links on screens that don't exist. We need help because Instagram is a critical way that we reach the public on issues regarding ocean conservation and science literacy.
GetHuman-kkostel did not yet indicate what Instagram should do to make this right.
