With Security Checkup, Instagram users will be able to see if their mobile phone number, email, login info, and profile were all correct and managed each one of them as well.

Alongside that, Instagram wanted to make sure that users’ accounts were secure with several recommended steps that users can take:

  • Enable two-factor authentication
  • Update phone number and email
  • Be aware of your DMs
  • Report content and accounts you find questionable
  • Enable Login Request

The team behind Instagram also said that they made a significant update to the Support Inbox so that users can find out the latest information about what was happening with the reports or find out if any of their posts were violating Instagram’s policies.
