    Someone has been trying to get into my Instagram and email accounts...

    Just wondered if the person succeeds, is there a way I can find out what name they've changed the Instagram account to? (presuming they will)

    Create a different account, and follow yourself on your original. If the person does change the username (likely) you can view the change on your new account. ​

    This ALWAYS happens with any popular instagram accounts I have. Everytime I switch to a different account and then try to log back in Instagram says they have reset my password due to too many failed log in attempts. This happens like no joke twice a week. And sometimes Instagrams password reset email feature breaks! They have absolutely zero customer service also.

    There's an option to disable your email just through your email
