How to Discover Who’s Using Your Instagram Account

How to Discover Who’s Using Your Instagram Account

Hey there! Today, I want to talk about something that’s been on my mind lately – finding out who’s accessing my Instagram account. It’s a topic that raises eyebrows, but it’s important to protect our online presence, right? So, let’s dive into the exciting world of checking our logged-in devices on Instagram!

First things first, I need to make sure you’re aware of the possibility of someone else logging into your account without your knowledge. It sounds like an invasion of privacy, and it is! But fear not, my friend, for Instagram has provided us with a way to take charge and stay in control.

Here’s how you can do it:

1. Open the Instagram app on your mobile device – I prefer doing it on my smartphone, but you choose what works best for you.

2. Tap on your profile icon at the bottom right corner of the screen – it’s like looking in the mirror, but with a twist!

3. Once you’re on your profile, tap on the menu icon at the top-right of the screen – those three little lines that hide the secrets.

4. Scroll down the menu until you find “Settings” – it’s the key to unlocking your Instagram kingdom.

5. Tap on “Security” – the shield that guards your online fortress.

6. Under the “Login Security” section, you’ll find “Logged In Devices” – where the truth lies waiting for you.

7. Tap on “Logged In Devices,” and voila! A list of the devices currently logged into your Instagram account will appear before your curious eyes.

Now, here comes the thrilling part – scanning the list for any unfamiliar devices. Take your time, my dear detective, and scrutinize each entry. Do you see anything out of the ordinary? If you do, it’s time to put on your superhero cape (or grab your glasses, if that’s more your style) and take action!

To get rid of an unwelcome guest, simply tap “Remove” next to the suspicious device’s name. Marvel at the power you have to banish intruders from your virtual realm!

But wait, there’s more! Instagram has another trick up its sleeve – the option to log out of all devices at once. Yes, you heard me right! If you suspect that multiple unauthorized parties are lurking around, you can tap the “Log Out of All Devices” button at the top of the “Logged In Devices” list. This will ensure a clean slate and grant you peace of mind.

Remember, my friend, it’s your Instagram kingdom, and you have the power to safeguard it. Stay vigilant, keep an eye on those logged-in devices, and rest easy knowing that you’re in control. Happy Instagramming, fearless protector of your digital domain!

How to Check Your Logged In Devices on Instagram

Hey there! Have you noticed anything weird happening with your Instagram account lately? If you’re seeing strange activity, like likes on posts you’ve never seen before, your account might be at risk.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to check the devices that are logged into your Instagram? Well, lucky for you, there is! You can actually see the locations and types of devices that have accessed your account. From there, you can deny access to these devices or even change your Instagram password.

Keep reading for a step-by-step guide on how to secure your Instagram and stay safe.


If you’re careful with your personal information and social media accounts, you’ll be safe most of the time. One important thing to remember is to avoid allowing your device to save your Instagram password when logging into your account on a Wi-Fi network that’s not your own.

Another good precaution is to always log out of your Instagram account if you’ve been using it on another device, like a friend’s phone or computer. Everyone has sensitive information on their Instagram, so it’s essential to stay cautious.

Sometimes, hackers can still crack your password and misuse your Instagram account, even if you’re being super careful. So, if you notice anything suspicious, you should check the devices logged into your account right away. I’ll explain how to do that in the next section.

How to Check Logged in Devices

Checking the devices logged into your Instagram account can be done on both your computer and your mobile device. Let’s start with the computer method.

On Your Computer

If you’re using a computer, you might be aware that certain options, like chat, are usually only available on mobile devices. However, you can still check the devices logged into your account from your computer by following these steps:

  1. Log into your Instagram account using a web browser.
  2. Click on the Profile tab located at the top-right corner of the screen.
  3. Next, click on Settings.
  4. Now, choose Login Activity.
  5. A list of the devices logged into your account, along with their locations, will appear. If you don’t recognize a device, click on the down arrow button and select Log Out.

You have the option to remove each device individually or choose to change your Instagram password. I’ll explain how to change the password in just a bit.

On Your Mobile

Most people use Instagram apps on their iOS or Android devices. The process of checking logged in devices is slightly different on mobile. Here’s how you can do it on your phone or tablet:

  1. Open the Instagram app on your phone.
  2. Select the profile icon.
  3. Tap on the Hamburger icon located at the top-right corner of the screen.
  4. Choose Settings.
  5. Now, tap on Security.
  6. Select Access Data.
  7. Scroll down to Account Activity and choose Logins.

  8. You can also check Logouts right below.

Unfortunately, on the mobile version, you’ll only see the login and logout times and dates. There won’t be any device names or locations displayed. It seems like it’s better to check the logged in devices on Instagram using your computer instead of mobile to get more information on whether someone else is using your account.

How to Change Your Instagram Password

If you notice any suspicious activity, it’s important to change your Instagram password as soon as possible. It’s a simple process, but make sure you have your old password handy because you’ll need it to confirm the password change.

On Your Computer

The steps for changing your password are slightly different from accessing Login Activity, but you can also change your password from there. In the list of logged in devices, click on the “This Wasn’t Me” button.

Instagram will prompt you to change your password so that all other devices, except for the computer you’re currently using, will be disconnected. Just enter your old password, your new password, and confirm your new password.

Finally, confirm the prompt notifying you about the password change. This is the safest option if you believe your Instagram account has been compromised.

On Your Phone

On your phone, you can directly change your password. Follow these steps:


  1. To get started, open the Instagram app on your device.
  2. Next, go to the Profile menu.
  3. Tap on the Hamburger menu and select Settings.
  4. From there, choose Security, and then tap on Password at the top of the screen.
  5. You’ll need to enter your current password, as well as your new password and confirm it. Once you’ve done that, confirm the changes.

And just like that, you’re all set! By changing your password, you’ll automatically be logged out on any other devices, ensuring that only your phone remains logged in to your Instagram account. If you’ve forgotten your password and use Facebook, you also have the option to reset your password through Facebook. Simply select that option in the password change menu.

Keep Your Instagram Information Secure

It’s crucial to keep your Instagram password private, as others could potentially access sensitive information about you, such as your personal details and passwords. It’s a good idea to regularly check which devices are logged into your account using the methods you just learned.

Additionally, it’s recommended to change your password every six months or so. This simple action will help protect your account from potential hacking threats. If your Instagram account has been hacked, be sure to let us know in the comments section below.
