Instagram tests the simplified recovery of the hacked accounts


Network sources report that the social network Instagram holds testing of a new method of recovery of accounts of users. If now for recovery of the account it is necessary to address to security service of network, then in the future this process is planned to be simplified significantly.

For recovery of the account will be required to specify in the new way personal data, including mobile phone number or the e-mail address. After that the generated six-digit code which needs to be entered into the corresponding form will be sent to the user.

According to the available data, users will be able to restore access to the account even if malefactors changed the name and a contact information specified on the page of a profile. It was succeeded to achieve it due to introduction of the ban on use of the changed contact information as means of restoring access on a certain period. In other words, even after change of contact information for recovery of the account some time old data will be used. It guarantees that the user who faced a problem will be able to return access to the account of Instagram.

At the moment is unknown when function of recovery of the account is widely adopted, but blocking of a user name is already available to all devices on the basis of Android and iOS. Introduction of new function will allow users to carry out independently restoring access, having reduced the number of appeals to security service. Of course, it will not reduce the number of breakings of accounts, but will make restoring access process much quicker.
