    My biggest Instagram account was hacked today, the user logged in and changed the username, email and password. Is there any way to get it back? I've contacted Instagram support about the account but I don't know if they'll be able to do anything.

    I also actually talked to the hacker and found out how he logged into the account. I though he was actually going to give me the account back at one point but ended up not :(

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    How did he do it? My first though was you were using a sketchy program to bot your account.

    Instagram support is your only hope here.

    Are you able to recover the email used to create the account?

    Just wondering how the hacker was able to log in to your account? It does not help now but would be good to know for future.

    I'm thinking of making a thread on here explaining the whole situation so that everyone can prevent it, I will link it to you when I make it.

    Here's the post: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/dont-be-stupid-like-me-how-i-got-hacked.902190/ It's not like he did any crazy hacking but still think it would help people to know.

    Can't you just send that Skype log to IG support? Sure they will help you out, you've got the proof right?

    That's a good idea, although we were doing a skype call and I'm not sure if that saves. Either way I'll be able to send them the kik chat as well.
