I start this tutorial by explaining how to solve the simplest technological problem of all. For example, if you haven't used Instagram for a long time and, despite knowing your login details (email or username, telephone number and password), you no longer remember how to log in. Perhaps you are not very familiar with the use of applications on smartphones or the world of technology is not your forte. The fact is that you would therefore like my help to be able to enter your Instagram profile.
If this is your case, don't worry, this technological hitch may seem insurmountable to you, but in reality it is really simple. All you need, to begin with, is the official Instagram application which is available on Android and iOS. In case the app is already installed on your device, I suggest you, before starting it by tapping on its icon, to check that it has been updated to the latest version.
To carry out this procedure, open the Android PlayStore or the iOS App Store and check, looking for the application in the list of those installed (for example, just type its name in the search engine) if the wording is present Update. If there is this writing, tap on it to update to the latest stable version. This is a fundamental preliminary procedure: you may in fact encounter problems in accessing your account, if the app has not been correctly updated.
Once this has been verified, now tap the button apri from the App Store or PlayStore to start the Instagram app, or tap its icon from the Home Screen of your device. Once you get to this point, logging into your account (even if you haven't used it for a while) will be really simple, especially if you remember your login details.
When you first registered on Instagram, did you do so by registering through your Facebook profile? In this specific case, just press the button Accedi con Facebook.
Then enter your login data relating to the main Mark Zuckerberg social network; as you can see, instead of the Login with Facebook button the wording will appear Continue as [your name and surname]. You just need to press the button in question to log in to your Instagram account. Did you see how easy it was?
If, on the other hand, you want to enter your Instagram profile that you registered in the past, but without logging in with Facebook, click on the wording Do you already have an account? Log in which you can see located below. Then indicate, in the respective text fields, your telephone number, your username or registration email and password. Log in by pressing the button Log in. Also in this case, by following these instructions that I have given you, you will be able to easily log in to the social network. Are you happy to have your account back?
So far I have talked to you about the easy access possibilities to an Instagram profile, but if it is a profile you have not accessed for some time it could also be that you no longer remember the login data. In this case, do you want to know how you should proceed? The answer is simple: you need to recover your data.
To perform this procedure, follow the instructions I am about to give you. First open the Instagram application and, from the initial app login screen, press the button Get help with logging in located at the bottom of the login screen.
At this point you will be sent back to the section dedicated to recovering your account. The first thing you need to do is choose how you want to proceed to recover your account. For example, if you remember your username or the email address indicated during registration, enter it in the text field Username or email.
If, on the other hand, you remember the phone number with which you registered (which is certainly much more likely), tap on the section Telephone and type your mobile number in the text field Telephone. In both cases, after indicating the login data necessary for recovery, press the button Send login link and then press on OK the notice that will appear on the screen.
In the first case, you will have been emailed a link that will allow you to recover your account. In fact, you just need to open the email and click on the button Log in as [your username] to finally get your account back. Alternatively, you can also click on the link named reset your Instagram password, which will allow you to quickly change your password.
If, on the other hand, you are no longer able to log into your Instagram account and have chosen to carry out the recovery by phone number, an SMS will be sent to the mobile number indicated by you and there will be a link inside it that refers to the official website of the social network. Just click on it and you will be able to access your Instagram profile again.
In case you also clicked on the entry reset your Instagram password, keep in mind that, to carry out the password change procedure, you will need to act through the web page that will open on your browser. In the text field New password then type in the new password you have chosen for your account and then type one more time into the text field New password confirmation. To confirm the new password click on the button Reset password.
At this point, the procedure that allows you to enter an Instagram profile and recover its data is finished. If you followed my instructions to the letter you shouldn't have had any problems and you should have been able to get your account back.
Do you need to regain possession of your Instagram profile but you do not have the possibility to act through your mobile device, following the instructions I have given you? Don't worry, you can also reset your password from a web browser.
Doing so is very simple: first open the browser you usually use to surf the Internet (Google Chrome or Safari) and connect to the page dedicated to password recovery. For the correct execution of this procedure, however, you will need to know the email address or username indicated during registration. Once typed in the appropriate text field, you will need to verify by placing a check mark on the item I'm not a robot e premere sul pulsating Reset Password.
An email will then be sent to you containing the link to reset your password. To do this, click on the button Reset Password that you will see in the email and continue as I explained above: then indicate the new password in the two text fields that you will see on the screen and press the button Reset the password. Did you see that it wasn't that difficult?
Did you follow the procedures I indicated but you were unable to log into your Instagram account? In case of major problems you can try to recover your Instagram account by contacting the service of Help Center of Instagram. Through the Internet site that I have indicated you can read other tips to find an alternative solution. Just search for the problem you encountered through the internal search engine or browse the list of frequently asked questions and answers aimed at solving the main problems with the social network.
I also recommend that you try contacting Instagram tech support by talking to the Instagram team via Facebook or Twitter. I am sure you will find an employee willing to help you in more complicated situations.How to enter an Instagram profile
