Why do we need to protect him?

Instagram gives you the opportunity not only to create a creative account, filling it with a meaningful / philosophical / creative idea (here everything depends on your effort and in general the desire to make the content useful), but also gives the opportunity to fraudsters, having gained access to your account, to obtain information that can be important to you.
Fraudsters can do mass mailings on your behalf, can get access to all your personal correspondence, can cause reputational damage to you. By taking care of the safety of your Instagram account, you make a significant contribution to the peace of your nervous system, saving yourself from unnecessary thoughts when your friends start asking why they receive messages from your account: “Dude, I’m dying, put down two thousand”. And this is the worst thing that can happen. After all, the use of your account by fraudsters depends solely on their goals and objectives.

Instagram was founded by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. Back in 2010, they created an app where people could share, comment and like photos. At first, Instagram only allowed you to take square photos. It is hard to believe that the application was founded only in 2010, and has so smoothly merged into our everyday life in just over ten years. Instagram has become popular not only from the point of view of the consumer, but also in the field of digital marketing.
