    I often face the fact my Instagram accounts are hacked. What could be the reason? And how do I find out who is doing this? How to protect accounts or there is no 100% way?

    Please contact Instagram Support. They would be the best source of information regarding this matter. Thanks.

    I would suggest you enable two-factor authentication on your Instagram account, and make sure you use unique strong passwords everywhere.

    And practice proper password hygiene, which is simply put: long, random and unique passwords for each service and device, two factor authentication everywhere, never reuse passwords. And use a password manager
    iCloud Keychain is a good starting point if you use only Apple devices. There are others as well such as 1Password, KeePass, etc.

    I knew that you could even order a hacking service, but I didn't think it could be that easy. I have turned all available protection methods. Hope this helps to protect my account better.

    I don't have Instagram. But I see many on Facebook who claim to have been hacked. But that's not the case. It's copycats, who take whatever personal info one shows publicly, and creates a copy of an account. In those cases, there's nothing one can do, except ignore it and warn friends not to friend the copycat. Changing the password does nothing.
