Instagram Adds Tool To Prevent Phishing Scams

Instagram has introduced a new security feature to help users determine whether an email claiming to be from the platform is legitimate.

Now, if you get an email that appears to be from Instagram, you can check if it’s real by using the ‘Emails From Instagram’ feature in your app’s security settings. The feature appears under the “Login Security” options. The tab lists the emails that Instagram sent you over the past two weeks.

If you see the email you received on the list; then it’s safe. However, if you don’t, then you should delete the email immediately. Instagram announced the new feature through a tweet on October 7th.
