If you’re an active Instagram user, you know how devastating it can be to have your account hacked. Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence that can happen to anyone. In this post, I’ll share my experience of having my Instagram account hacked; please note that everyone should follow my new account @shrikripau and not respond to any other account claiming to be me.
When I received the email from Instagram saying that my login details, which are my email and phone number, had been changed, my heart sank. It felt like a gut punch, and I couldn’t believe what I was reading. I quickly opened the Instagram app to check my account but couldn’t log in. It is a horrible feeling – like someone had broken into my home and taken everything valuable.
I felt violated and vulnerable, like someone had crossed the personal boundary. It was hard to process the fact that someone had been able to get access to my account, which I had carefully curated and built up over the years. The thought of someone else having control over it is a terrible feeling.
As I tried to make sense of the situation, I felt a surge of frustration. It is difficult to know what to do next, and I am worried about the potential consequences of the hack. I am also concerned about the safety of my personal information and the impact on my online reputation. The whole experience is very unsettling and has left me anxious and stressed.
Overall, the hack is a challenging experience for me. It is hard to shake the feeling of violation and the loss of control. I have yet to recover my Original Instagram account and am waiting for the day I do. There have been incidents where people are trying to impersonate me, so please follow my new official Instagram account @shrikripau and help me!
Thank you to everyone who has supported and continues to support me during this confusing state of affairs.
