    So, I'm posting this so others can keep a look-out for these kinds of emails/attempts. I just received this email from a random person saying that they're a "fan" and a follower of my InstaGram page. Then, they want me to check out a Facebook URL that they sent to me and I need to make sure to "sign in" using my InstaGram info.

    I have a feeling that this app of theirs has some sort of "key logger" built in for the purpose of collecting the login information to InstaGram pages.

    Take a look at the email below:

    Make sure you're careful where you enter your account information at, always check the URL in your browser and "never" hand your information out. If you're buying InstaGram likes or followers, a legitimate provider will "never" need your account login information.

    Just a few words of advice... :)

    What is the best way to keep our account secure? Is there any 2 factor authentication for instagram?

    I just heard one of my business friend lost his instagram empire that he built to sell shoes online.
