Instagram account recovery getting easier; hijacks less likely

The updated approach uses the app to ask for different types of info (such as your original email address or phone number). You’ll then get a six-digit code sent to the contact info of your choice, and Instagram will then prevent hackers from using email or phone number codes to take over your account from a different device.

This new method would ensure that you could recover your account even if an intruder has changed the user name and contact data.
