Why you received an Instagram password reset email that you didn’t request
Receiving a password reset email doesn’t necessarily mean that your account has been hacked. For example, when someone is trying to log into their account or reset their password, they may mistype or misremember their email address or username and enter yours by mistake. Only people who know your Instagram password or click the login link in this email can log in to your account.
Emails from Instagram will only come from @mail.instagram.com. If the email you received did not come from us, it may be a phishing attempt and you shouldn’t click any links or attachments.
If you do have additional security concerns, you may want to reset your password and enable two-factor authentication. Learn what you can do to make sure your account is secure.
If you're having issues logging in, learn what to do if you can't login to your account. If you're still having issues with your email or phone number, let us know.
