I received a "password reset" email from Instagram that I did not request. The body of the email does actually state:

If you didn't request a password reset, let us know

And the "let us know" text is hyperlinked.

But as I don't fully trust the email I don't want to click the link in the email! (As the Instagram help docs state: "If you get a suspicious email or message claiming to be from Instagram, don't click any links or attachments.")

So, how can I inform Instagram of the unrequested/bogus password reset email without actually clicking the link in the email itself?

Instagram password reset email


From the Instagram Help Centre page (same page link you have given in your question):

You can always report strange emails to phish@instagram.com.

So, you don't have to click on the link in your email. You can forward this mail to Instagram directly.
