    Alright so a few days ago a a bunch of my stat accounts started to get hacked about like 2 aday.

    and it mass planner it shows "Password Reset" so if i reset with the username it shows another email

    Thanks! Please check (t********************[email protected]) for a link to reset your password.
    (here is an actual email from one of my hacked accounts [email protected])

    i used mail.ru and it now shows gmail, i never installed anything on my vps, just massplanner.
    i dont get how im getting hacked, i think its some sort of exploit that someone is using.

    So now im wondering if i should change my email password or my instagram account password in order to avoid anymore getting hacked. I know i can do both but will take longer and i have many stat accounts
    so i dont know which way is the safest.
    Thanks

    I think best way to secure is to bind them with Mobile numbers

    Report the account hacked.

    Sounds like the Hacker has your email details....Using a different computer change your email password. When somebody changes the old email to a new email on the IG account, it will usually send a verify request message to the old email address asking if it is ok to change it. The hacker would need access to your original email address a few times to make the changes to the gmail one.
