Lost password to IG account

Hey guys,

I want to get my hands on a certain Instagram handle. I already contacted the owner (found her name on the account and messaged her on LinkedIn) but she has lost the password to the Instagram account, as well as the password to the email address connected to that account.

Now what… Is this handle just lost forever? Anyone have any ideas of what to do? Can I contact Instagram about it or are there less ethical ways to get my hands on this account?


Dont contact Instagram. What I would do is try to get into the email connected to that account. Once you are in that email, send a recovery code to the email from forgot password, then reset it from there. There might be an easier way to do this though.

Unfortunately she can’t get into the email account either… That’s the problem :frowning:
Thanks for your help anyway :slight_smile:

Was there a phone connected to the account?

Account recovery through the owner? you can guide her through the steps.

There are also some recovery services available, use the search.
