Hackers/Security experts: what is happening to me???
I seem to have locked down FB and Twitter, (those were hacked too, and Microsoft, Steam and allegedly ticketmaster) but man...Instagram is constantly being hacked into even though I have 2-step authentication ON.

So every time a password changes, I get a code to my phone/SMS that only I should have in order to allow the password change.

By the time I notice I've gotten a code I didn't ask for, someone is already in my account and changing my password.

I can get back in, but this is happening several times per day!

How are they doing this? How are they getting my special code from SMS? Is someone duping my phone, and how did they do THAT???

Or is something else happening?

I don't have time for this, but I need my IG up it's where I showcase my photography and arrange shoots with models.

IG is silent on the issue.

I have no idea who could be doing this to you, kiddo.

Have you hosted any specifically "vaccine-related" threads?

There seems to be a big issue with anyone talking NEGATIVE
OR POSITIVE (doesn't matter) about the vaccines.
(I've had trouble with this as well...just curious.)

Good luck figuring it out. I'm sure it is frustrating.
Maybe get a more POWERFUL firewall and blocking program
for your computer.

cheers

Your phone has been cloned and the 2FA is thus compromised.
Probably.

use on screen keyboard to avoid keylogger and change the 2fa device.

turn off old 2fa device while setting up new one.

This person has a lot of feelings about me! Wow.

You're not being hacked, loser, you're insignificant. It's your illiteracy and stupidity at work. Melt, snowflake, melt and stop your fucking whining about everything.

When you get into your account, can you change more than just your password? Maybe change the setup of 2 factor authentication. Maybe use something other than your phone. And change your identity verification questions and answers. Just change everything pertaining to authentication.

We don’t allow SMS to be used as a 2fa mechanism in my enterprise because it is so weak. If there are any other options for 2fa use those. Preferably a one time token from an authenticator app.

IG doesn't give that many options, unfortunately. I think something called "Whatsapp" is an option but i have to read up on that.

Authenticator 2fa is better yes. I read some places that sms messages can be intercepted by telco carriers (was revealed with ads). I'd not trust it.
