Soon, in order to restore the hacked Instagram account, the user will only need to request a recovery code by e-mail or mobile number.
Before that, the social network will ask you to enter the email or phone number that was specified during registration. The system will then send you a 6-digit code. At the same time, you can use the sent code only from one device.

To restore access to your account, the social network will ask for the email address or phone number specified during registration. Then the social network will send a six-digit code to them. Instagram will not allow these codes to be used to recover an account from another device.
The new account recovery method is also suitable for those cases when the username and contact information were changed after the hack. To realize this opportunity, Instagram plans to introduce a system of temporary freezing of the account name. When the account name is changed, no one will be able to occupy it for a while.
The timing of the full launch of the new functionality is still unknown, but now all users of the application on Android and partially on iOS are available to block the name.
At the moment, in order to recover a hacked account, you need to contact the Instagram security service.
Recall that earlier Instagram added a quiz sticker for stories and updated the design of the recommendation section.
