You can activate it in your profile by clicking on the gear symbol for iOS or the three vertical dots for Android at the top right. Stop on Two-factor authentication and check the item Request security code. Enter your phone number, if you've never entered it before, and tap NEXT to receive a code to enter.

  • Open the mobile app.
  • On the login screen tap on the link Get help with logging in.
  • Stop on Use username or email to regain access.
  • Alternatively, stop on Instagram help center.


It is possible that your account was not hacked but disabled. If you get a message every time you try to log in then it is worth checking whether your posts comply with the Community Guidelines or the Terms of Use. Check photos, comments, videos and anything that may have led to the deactivation.

If you believe that your account has been mistakenly disabled you can reactivate your Instagram account and appeal by logging into the app and following the instructions provided. Otherwise you will need to create a new account with the same email address and new password.

I recommend for future problems to periodically make backups of your content by reading this guide: How to download and save photos and videos from Instagram.
