      Hi Guys! I am Makis.

      I have a little problem when I try to log in on Instagram. So when I log in it pops up a SMS number confirmation which must be filled otherwise you cant use Instagram. But when I write down my number and press enter no SMS code is sent to me. It’s like I’ve lost my account and I don’t know what to do about it!

      Is here anyone help me with Not getting SMS confirmation code from Instagram problem?

      Hi Makis! If you’re not receiving the SMS confirmation code from Instagram, there are a few things you can try:

      1. Check your phone number: Make sure that you have entered the correct phone number associated with your Instagram account. Double-check the country code and ensure that your phone number is in the correct format.
      2. Check your phone’s signal: Make sure that your phone has a good signal and is connected to the network. If you have poor signal or are in an area with weak coverage, you may not receive the SMS confirmation code.
      3. Wait a few minutes: Sometimes, there may be a delay in receiving the SMS confirmation code. Wait a few minutes and try again.
      4. Try a different phone number: If you’re still not receiving the SMS code, you can try using a different phone number associated with your account.
      5. Contact Instagram support: If none of the above options work, you can contact Instagram support [+] for help. You can do this by going to the Instagram Help Center and submitting a support request.
      It’s also worth noting that Instagram may have other options for verifying your account, such as using a backup code or sending the verification code to your email address. So be sure to explore all the available options.

      I hope this helps you resolve the problem! Let me know if you have any other questions.

      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.
