Seems that are some ways to recover the account that Gene should easily be able to pass.
I submitted a half dozen video selfies already but it's the weekend so it may take some time.

Although I have an Instagram account, I don't do much with it. I don't understand what would make Instagram accounts worth hacking. It's not like they contain valuable data - just a bunch of photos and videos that one would assume are also stored elsewhere. What am I not getting?

Personal accounts are very different from business accounts which can be used to generate income, drive sales to your website, to the forum, etc.

Someone hacked our Instagram account and is holding it for ransom. They provided a whatsapp phone# to reach them to get it back. Working with IG to try to recover but this is frustrating and scary. How did they bypass our 2-step authorization? gb whatsapp

If I am not wrong then the Instagram account is linked to your Facebook account.

Once anything is "Hacked" it never goes away. Never!! One would just about assume another identity. Hackers are relentless and there are many of them. criminal organizations never stop.

law enforcement will only go as far as the Money is rolling in. No money in it for them? Don't expect much of if anything recourse.

You're replying to a post that Gene made 12-3-2021. He has moved on from this issue.

The man never stops pursuing the truth in audio, give him a mission or mess with his family, He'll hunt you down like a rabid dog.

edit: As in, good professional.
