Today’s article is born from the real Instagram follower of my account who told me that when I clicked the “forgot my password” button, I was not able to recover the account. He had tried everything.
Recover Instagram password
Warning, so that it does
not happen again, point the password somewhere you do not want to lose. I
usually write it down on a piece of paper and leave it at home, hidden.
Another option is to allow your browser to “remember my account” to save your password and not have to put it back. I will explain the process to recover the password through the PC, but you can also do it through the app.
The first thing we have to do is click on the “I forgot my password” button. I think it says ” Forgot your password? “And it’s located right below the blue button. When you click, a screen will appear to identify your account. It can be done through email or through your username.
Enter the name of your account, click on “I’m not a robot” so that Instagram knows that you are not a hacker trying to steal an account , and click on Reset password .
Those who doubt what name you have, you can ask the phone to a friend and look for images that you have recently liked. Then look at what users have given like and you will find your username.
If you prefer, you can
enter the email you used to register your account. What many people say is that
they have 2 Instagram accounts and do not remember which one they used to
For those who do not remember the username or email, there are other options to recover the Instagram account.
Remember the password without email or Facebook
This option is available
only for the latest versions of the application. If this option does not
appear, try updating the Instagram app.
Well, let’s see how to recover an Instagram password without email or Facebook.
What you can do is simply put your phone number on the password recovery screen.
Once you have entered your phone and click on the button you will receive an SMS with a link to retrieve your password. For this it is important that, when you registered on Instagram , you have put a real phone to which you have access.
Ep! Important note! As you see, you will have to do it from the app and not from the pc.
These are all possible options to know how to recover the Instagram account. However, before trying to recover the password, it is important to read the terms and conditions of Instagram to understand why we must reset the password as they tell us.
They only allow recovering the password through the mail, username, Facebook or SMS.
