    Hello All,

    I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this. Feel free to delete.

    I have an IG account that is acting kind of odd. I have made this as a business account for a client. The first time I made the account, it was basically hacked and taken over. Someone had gotten in and changed the username, photos and everything. After that, I had just created a whole new account with two-step authentication. I am now getting text messages at all hours with a new text code. Does this mean someone is trying to log into said account? Every time I get a new code, I am forced to re-log in, and my password is no longer valid. So I am creating a new password every time. What is happening? And how can I prevent it? I have never had this happen, and it's very frustrating.

    Also to note, there are other accounts being created with random usernames that uses my clients same user photo, and every time it happens, it sends a notification to their existing followers. I feel like this is an easy fix, but it's becoming a continuous problem. I am extremely grateful for anyone who reads this and can help. :)
