Get ready to have your perspective completely changed as we dive into the topic of Instagram security. You may think that your Instagram account is as safe as a baby in a padded room, but let me tell you, there are more ways to compromise your account than there are pictures of avocado toast on the platform. So, grab a cup of tea, a snack, and maybe a blanket, because we’re about to go on a wild ride of discovering ways in which you can compromise your Instagram security.

First off, let’s talk about buying views. 

There is a terrific rush for fame and success in the world today, and Instagram is the place where most individuals and businesses hope to get them. For that, care must be taken in selecting the best sites to buy Instagram views. This is because fake ones would lead to your account getting hacked. The fake sites often use fake accounts to increase your view count, and in the process, they may also gain access to your account information.

Using the same password for all of your online accounts 

This is like wearing the same pair of socks for a month straight. It may seem convenient, but it’s a recipe for disaster. If a hacker gains access to one of your accounts, they’ll have the key to all of them. Make sure to mix it up and use a unique password for each account.

Public Wi-Fi is like a buffet at a party 

It may seem like a great idea at the time, but it’s often a breeding ground for hackers. When using public Wi-Fi, make sure to use a VPN to encrypt your connection and protect your account information.

Clicking on suspicious links is like petting a stray cat 

You never know what you’re going to get. These links may lead to phishing websites that can steal your account information. Only click on links from trusted sources.

Not keeping your device updated 

This is like driving a car without an oil change. It may seem like it’s still running fine, but it’s only a matter of time before something goes wrong. Keeping your device updated will ensure that any security holes are patched and your account information is protected.

Not using two-factor authentication 

When you overlook 2FA, it’s like leaving your front door unlocked. It may seem like an inconvenience, but it’s a simple step that can protect your account from being hacked.

Not being aware of the apps that have access to your account 

This is like leaving your keys with a stranger. These apps may have access to your account information and can use it for malicious purposes. Make sure to regularly check the apps that have access to your account and remove any that you don’t recognize or trust.

In conclusion, protecting your Instagram account is like protecting your home. It’s important to take the necessary precautions to keep it secure. Use unique passwords; avoid public Wi-Fi, and never click on suspicious links. And most importantly, don’t forget to lock the front door (or in this case, enable two-factor authentication).
