You probably read the title of this article and are thinking to yourself if the author is high on drugs. Well, trust me I have not been drinking the kool-aid. Have you ever had someone steal your selfie on Instagram? Even if you haven’t, you still need to hear this. If this ever happens then it means that someone got access to your account, and stole your selfie photo. Unfortunately, this is always a possibility because security is never 100 percent. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t take a lot of precautions.
As long as you keep the following things in mind, your selfie images should be safe from harm on Instagram.
FIRST STEP TO STOP SELFIE THIEVES
You are going to be aware of this first step, but it deserves to be repeated. The most important thing you can do to make sure your Instagram account is as secure as it can be is to create a strong password. Everyone is aware of this fact, yet people will still use passwords that are incredibly easy to decode. Try to be as creative as possible with your password, and steer away from common phrases.
SECOND STEP TO STOP SELFIE THIEVES
Now, we turn to a new feature that Instagram has decided to use. The company has decided to implement two-factor authentication. This means that two forms of authentication are required to access an account. So, what this allows you to do is to verify a phone number to receive an authentication code for login. This ensures that even if someone figures out your password, they would still need the authentication code to login. This is a strongly recommend step because this will double the security of your account on Instagram. Security is the name of the game people, and as long as you follow these two steps you should feel safe on Instagram.
