Instagram Adds 2FA

  • Instagram adds 2 factor authentication to tighten security (Facebook, its parent company had introduced 2FA 5 years back).
  • With this, username and password won’t be sufficient for others to hack into account; they will need your phone.
  • The feature release is a slow, staged roll-out. Hence, it may not be available to you immediately.
