    So today I got my instagram account hacked.
    The weird thing is, it happened on a very weird way.
    I got a normal phone verification on the instagram app which I completed with my own phone number.
    5 minutes later I saw all my posts getting deleted. I quickly changed the password and it stopped.
    Now the weird thing is: How did they hack via instagram their verification process..?
    And why didn't they change my pass but only deleted posts.
    I am quite mad atm lost some videos with almost 1M views and just alot of hard work..

    It was a text to your phone number or on the actual app? Did you click a link to do the phone verification?

    I also would find it out of the ordinary to have to do a phone verification now.

    They didn't hack IG dude, they hacked you. Check your phone, maybe you have a RAT in there.

    Could be that my phone got hacked indeed, I didn't download anything on it so I wonder if it's the case and how they did it.
    I'm putting it back to factory settings right now..

    That can happen if you download modded apps.

    I'm sorry to break it to you, but I think you got hacked by social engineering. Did you happen to check the actual origin of the email? Remember a lot of these campaigns get domains that are closely related to what the original domains will look like. Sorry about your troubles.
