Instagram Two Factor Authentication

Sadly over the past year many large Instagram accounts were lost due to hackers… Which is why I am super excited to announce that Instagram recently came out with a new update adding Two Factor Authentication.

Basically this adds a two layer security protection to your account so that each time you login you will receive and text message with a security code that must be entered to login.

This will ensure that no one can login to your account without you being notified and without the security code that will be sent to your phone.

I highly recommend that you turn on Two Factor Authentication and here’s how:

  1. Go to your settings (it’s the three prong looking thing on your profile page upper right corner).
  2. Then you’ll see two factor authentication tap on it and turn it on.
  3. You’ll then get a text message with your verification code to enter.
  4. Enter your verification code.

Here’s a quick 15 second video tutorial I posted on Instagram that might help as well…

Don’t see Instagram Two Factor Authentication yet?

It’s pretty simple to set up but if you are not seeing it yet you may not have received the update yet. The update was released on January 20th and I didn’t get it til the 26th so you might have to wait…

You can try to manually trigger the update yourself if you still haven’t gotten it by powering off and back on your device…

Also make sure you have automatic updates turned on. You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling Instagram. If that doesn’t work keep checking it will be rolled out to you soon.

Did you find this post helpful?

I would love to hear from you in the comments below please let me know if you have gotten the update or if you haven’t… Also let me know if you were able to manually trigger the update with the steps I listed above.

And if you’d like to help more people by getting the word out about this update be sure to share it with your friends.

Luv and Prosperity,
