Why old Phone Verifications...? If I have new Phone Nr and Email

Hey :wave:
I am updating my phone nrs on 1yr old accounts and instantly verifying them. So far so good :+1:
Less than 24hrs later I am asked to verify the previous old phone nr during login! Which I don’t have access to :roll_eyes:

The accounts have:

  • Verified emails on the accounts with IMAP access
  • 4G proxies
  • Only story views and saving posts
  • Changed username/name/bio 2-5 days before
  • API and EB active

Anyone know why IG is asking to verify the old phone nr and not the new one or even the email on the accounts?


2 options:

  • or is not correctly saved
  • or instagram crawlers are detecting ur setup as spam

Must be the crawlers, since new phone nr must be saved correctly, because I verified them (real SIM nr).

once u update the nr , go in profile settings/edit profile and check

I’ve noticed this. Also on new scraper accounts. After a few days, Instagram will request to reverify email, which has already been verified. If you don’t do it within 24 hours, the account is gone.

If it’s the new email that you added and have access to, it’s OK I guess
If it’s the previous email that you don’t have access to, what can you do?

@Boris turn 2factor on, that forces them to update your current number and yes, you need to keep it turned on

Good one, Tux :+1:

Instagram says:
If you can’t access your Instagram account or the email or phone number you signed up with:

  1. Open the Instagram app on your mobile device and enter your last known email address or phone number.
  2. Tap Forgot password? .
  3. Tap Need more help? .
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to submit a support request.

Has this worked for anyone?

I no longer have access to my old phone, how do I verify my account?https://mpsocial.com/t/i-no-longer-have-access-to-my-old-phone-how-do-i-verify-my-account/69275/27?u=boris

I have two accounts with the same issue. I’ve not tried to submit a support request yet. Both accounts don’t have access to the support request form after I followed the on-screen IG instructions. But I will try with another account that has Get help signing in status issue and can have access to the form.

Keep us updated, we will find a solution :+1:
As long as we have access to the associated email account, there must be a way.

Sir did you find any solution?

Hello, the only solution I have found is to save 2 different emails and have access to both, that way if you ask for the previous one I will also have access.

If your account is connected to a FB account, try adding your current phone number on the FB account, wait a few days, then try to verify your IG account again.

Hi Boris, I would like to tell you that I think I am near the solution to this problem but I think
I am lacking some information. I have simulated this problem & got a solution but I think
I am missing something can you please share some information with me. It will help many people.
