1.  Strong Password

A strong password is key to protect your account. Use capital and lower case letters as well numbers and symbols; the password shouldn’t be used on any online accounts other than Instagram.

2. Two-Factor Authentication

Pen and paper might become your best friend in tough times. You can even create an Email address you don’t always use, but be sure you have access to it at all times.
