    Simple. How do I protect 10+ accounts from getting hacked?

    I've seen a couple of pages here and there with a couple thousand followers say "My old account got hacked" in their bio. Then I'd find an account with a similar name at 100k+ followers.

    My accounts are yet to even cross 1k, but I'm not keen on having someone hijack months of work and the future income from it when I get there.

    What can I do to protect my accounts?

    I'm no expert at this but make a password that isn't guessable eg "dog7269houseĀ£%" you know what deal. And i'd suggest using a different password for every account

    Dont really know what you can do appart from that

    And don't, ever, ever give your password away to others seeming to "want to help your Instagram account".

    Most of the accounts that get hacked, is because they gave their password away to someone else that was going to "fine tune" or help them gain more followers, etc.

    I work with hundreds of accounts, that are handled by many people that work for the Instagram account holders. That means that everyone has the password, yet, in years, none of these accounts have been hacked. It's not luck, it's keeping everyone involved into not giving the password to anyone that has nothing to do with it... and that goes to others wanting to "fix your Instagram account."

    Honestly, a lot of big pages are stupid. They didn't bot their way or up, but just luck. They could've easily downloaded a virus or just has an easily guessed password.

    Never use a third party app or program that needs your login info.

    Use a different email for the account than the one that is listed in the bio (if it is)

    Make sure there is no connection to other social media sites via your IG

    Create a password of about 15-20 characters long including letters and numbers both and you are good to go. ;)
