Instagram hackers are on the rise
Dirty scammers are now hacking the Instagram accounts of companies and influencers in a new phishing campaign identified by Secureworks late last year.
To avoid all of your hard work creating content, engaging and building up your follower count just **poof** disappearing if someone were to hack your account, it’s so important to backup your data & set up two-factor authentication!
Did you know? You can actually download ALL of your photos, comments, profile information and more directly from the Instagam app! Your Marketing Cheerleaders have got your back, so we’re going to show you exactly how.
Downloading your data from Instagram
⭐️ Go to your Insta profile & tap on the Menu (3 lines at top right).
⭐️ Tap Your Activity.
⭐️ Tap Download Your Information.
⭐️ Enter your email address.
⭐️ Select either HTML or JSON format for your data.
⭐️ Enter your IG password and tap Request download.
Instagram will email you a link to a file with ALL your photos, comments, profile information and more. And don’t panic if it doesn’t come through straight away – it can take up to 30 days for IG to collect the data and email it to you.
HOT TIP: The link only works for four days from the time you receive it, so it’s best to save your files as soon as you receive the email link.
BRB we’re going to go practice what we preach and download our data!
