With TikTok losing its Indian base, Instagram is currently one of the largest social media platforms out there. The image and video sharing app is particularly popular among the youngsters. However, it has also become a major cause of concern for both parents and partners.
Guardians are constantly worried about the security of their wards while some may use social media to secretly stay connected to their lovers outside committed relationships. Hence, the need for hacking social media profiles and Instagram accounts.
In this article, we discuss the four major ways of hacking an Instagram account.
- Crack their password
- Reset Password
- Phishing pages
- Instagram Spy Apps
Crack Their Instagram Password
Most social media users keep a password that they can easily remember for their Instagram account. Assuming that the target is somebody you already know, you might just want to begin by attempting to guess their password. Some of the most commonly used passwords include date of birth (or other important dates like anniversary or children’s birthday); name 123; spouse, children or pet’s name; favourite sports; or other information that resembles something quite close to the target.
Hacking Instagram Account by Resetting Password
We are guessing that you have already failed to crack their password. So, it is time to bypass the password security. Using the ‘Reset Password’ option is one of the easiest ways to hack an Instagram account. But, you will need access to either their phone or email to execute this hack.
Steps To Secretly Reset their Insta Password –
- Go to the Instagram Login page.
- Click on the Forgot Password option.
- Enter their associated phone number/ email address (depending on what you have access to).
- You will get a security code on their number or email ID. Enter the OTP to reset password.
- You can now log in their Instagram account with the new credentials.
Using Phishing pages to hack an Instagram account
A phishing page can be best understood as a spoofed site/URL that aims to trick users into entering their login credentials or other sensitive info by posing as a legitimate website. Phishing schemes can also be used effectively to hack a user’s Instagram account using fake login pages.
Employing Instagram Spy Apps
A good way to view the target’s Instagram activities without raising any red flags is to employ Instagram spy apps. Some of the popular spy apps for Instagram include iKeyMonitor, PhoneSpector and FlexiSPY.
These simple to use and install spy apps will allow you to remotely monitor a user’s Instagram activities such as posts, followed and flowers list as well as private messages through your private control panel.
