Accounts, which are not top popular (millions of subscribers), but quite popular, having a wide auditorium of followers, are frequent victims of scheme artists. These are business accounts, well-known blogs, brand accounts, etc. Once you own one of those (or once the number of your followers have started growing noticeably), take special precautions regarding security measures. These recommendations are not any sort of paranoid advices; cases of stealing the accounts are quite frequent. Instagram users lose their businesses like this. Take security issues seriously, especially if you are using your instagram for business purposes.

Here are a few tips to help you protect your account and your business.

  1. Make a complex password.
  2. Link your account to pages in other social networks.
  3. Check if your e-mail is reliable. Passwords for Instagram and e-mail accounts must be different.
  4. Two-factor authentication

If you have more than 1,000 subscribers, turn a two level identification on (thus, besides a standard login and password you are going to get an SMS-code). It will be very useful if someone tries to steal your account. And, if the combination of login and password can be possibly hacked, than SMS will arrive to your telephone, and no one will be able to use your account without your permission. The corresponding section will be found in your profile settings. Enter it and check the box “Request security code”.
