Instagram has just introduced a new security checkup for people whose accounts have been hacked before. All those users will see a prompt when they log in asking if they want to start a security checkup. Security Checkup will guide people through the steps needed to secure them. This includes checking login activity, reviewing profile information, confirming the accounts that share login information and updating account recovery contact information such as phone number or email.

Instagram is also thinking to add support for two-factor authentication through WhatsApp. There was a rise in malicious accounts DMing people to try and access sensitive information like account passwords. The company has also warned its users that it will never send a DM to its users. Instagram only sends emails. You can check to see if an email’s authentic by looking at the “Emails from Instagram” tab in settings.
The company has encouraged its users to enable two-factor authentication to make their accounts more secure. After enabling this feature, users will be notified if someone else tries to access their accounts.
