    Yes, report it to instagram as a hacked acc :D
    Have they changed your email password as well or not? If not then the chances for getting it back are pretty high.

    They will get back to you, had a stolen IG acc as well... same like you, they changed the username and email. Reported it as hacked and after max 48hours got it back. If you receive no response, just keep reporting and reporting. Hope you get it back soon.

    Report it to Instagram. Even if they changed email IG can send a recovery link to the initial email the account was registered with.

    Good Luck!

    Hope you get your account back.

    On another subject, easiest way to avoid getting hacked is to STOP giving your login information to others. If you don't control your account, you let others take it from you. No login into websites/apps that give you free stuff with your IG account. No giving your login info to bots doing likes or follows (even if it's free or paid.).

    Facts are, the majority will say they have never shared pw (with an online "buddy") or logged into an app/website to cover their stupidity.

    You could refer to it in your message(s) to IG asking for their help in getting your account back, but information on your account prior to it being hacked will be most helpful to IG, especially the email and phone (if any) used to create the account. That's info that presumably only you would know.

    If he changed the email it means you have received this email from instagram: http://prntscr.com/h3c4wj
    You can click revert this change and get your account back.
