Instagram launched a new feature
The social network Instagram is launching a new Security Checkup feature aimed at making users’ accounts more secure.
“Today we’re launching Security Checkup, a new feature to help people protect their Instagram accounts. Security Checkup will prompt people whose accounts may have been compromised to go through several steps necessary to protect the account.”
With the new feature, users whose accounts, in the opinion of the social network, may have been compromised, will be able to check whether an account was logged in, verify that the data on the page is correct, confirm interaction with other profiles and update contact information to restore their account.
The release specifies that Security Checkup is one way to ensure account security. Instagram also recommends using two-factor identification for account security, adding a phone number and email so that the social network can contact the user in case of need and restore the account.
Instagram is a free application for sharing photos and videos with elements of the social network, which allows you to take photos and videos, apply filters to them and distribute them through its service and a number of other social networks. It is owned by Facebook.
