What can I do if I receive a password reset email but still can't log in?

If you can't remember your password, you can request a password reset email to regain access to your Instagram account. The email will offer you the choice to either log in immediately from your email address, or first change the password before logging in.

If the password reset email isn't working:

  • Try requesting a new password reset email, in case the previous one expired.
  • Make sure you choose to reset your password instead of choosing to log in by selecting reset your Instagram password in the email.
  • If you're trying to change your password because you think your Instagram account has been hacked, learn more about getting help with logging in.
