    Hello there.

    I bought an acc here 2-3 month ago from some guy, everything was great, buying went smooth.
    The only problem I'm having since is password reset every 3 days. I just cannot do it anymore, I need help.

    I do not use accounts at the same time from different devices, but even if I would it shouldn't be a problem because I also have 2 different account that are running with the same settings and there was no password reset ever. Even with absolutely new account.

    That account has its own proxy in FL.

    So what do I do? Can I do something myself? Can I contact Instagram? What are the chances they would see me using FL and they would ban me?

    Thanks in advance.

    It happened to my biggest IG account. Some fu*ker was requesting password reset for my account every single day in a period of 1 month ... then he realized that I'm not going to give up so he quit :D
    I've never tried contacting IG.

    how do you know that? and how do you know the person was not trying to hack your account?

    if thats the case, its bad coding on the IG part. one should not be able to request password reset without giving the correct email address.

    You don't need email just account name.

    OP's issue is different than what you guys experienced, he's getting the automated password reset fuckery from ig, nobody tries to hack into his account or requests pw reset on his behalf

    that account is no good anymore, there are two things OP can do:
    1. he can abandon the account and start a new one
    or
    2. deal with it

    contacting ig won't help, if anything at all, it would only draw unwanted attention

    Have you contacted the original seller about this? Might be a good idea
