Hi Makis.

  • Check Your Mobile Network: Ensure that you have a stable and active mobile network connection. Sometimes, issues with receiving SMS codes can be related to network connectivity.
  • Wait for a While: There might be a delay in receiving the SMS code. Wait for some time, and if you still don’t receive it, consider trying the process again after a short period.
  • Resend Code Option: On the Instagram login screen, look for an option to resend the code. Instagram usually provides an option to resend the verification code. This is often displayed after a certain waiting period.
  • Check Mobile Number: Double-check to make sure you’ve entered the correct mobile number associated with your Instagram account. If there’s a mistake, correct it and try again.
  • Use Email Verification: Instead of using SMS, try using the email verification option if Instagram provides it. Sometimes, you can choose to receive the verification code via email.
  • Update Instagram App: Make sure that your Instagram app is updated to the latest version. Outdated apps may have issues with certain functionalities.
  • Contact Instagram Support: If the issue persists, you can reach out to Instagram’s support. Visit the Instagram Help Center or use the in-app help options to report the problem. They may be able to provide assistance in recovering your account.
  • Two-Factor Authentication (2FA): If you have previously enabled two-factor authentication on your Instagram account using a third-party authentication app, check for codes from that app.

Remember, it’s crucial to follow Instagram’s guidelines and use the official channels for support. Avoid using third-party services that claim to help with account recovery, as they may pose security risks.

If none of these steps resolve your issue, Instagram support will be the best point of contact to get personalized assistance with your account recovery.
