We receive many inquiries through our website about security issues on Instagram and recovery of Instagram accounts. We share with you some simple steps to protect or recover your account on Instagram.
If you have a new mobile phone or if you recently updated the application, you may need to log into your main account and other active profiles.
Remember that you can have up to 5 different profiles on one device simultaneously.

However, we always recommend that you keep both your mobile phone software and applications up to date.
