Over the past year a lot of people have contacted me to say that they got locked out of their Instagram account or that it has been hacked. In December, Instagram launched a new tool to help users if this happens. If you go to the web address instagram.com/hacked you can then select from the following options:-
Select whether you’ve:
Forgot your password
Lost access to two-factor authentication
Had your account disabled
You can then follow the prompts to regain entry to your account.

It’s worth bookmarking the web address for the tool in case you need it in the future.
All the best
