I have just started up an Instagram account about a month ago but I haven't been able to sign in. It keeps saying it's the wrong password and email. What can I do as I want to use the Instagram app?


You are using wrong email id or password or both. If you are sure that you are using correct email id then you can reset the password.

Instagram allows to reset passwords in following 3 ways:

  • Reset using Email or Username: In this you should have the access of your email id connected to you account.
  • Reset using SMS: In this, you can get reset link in your SMS and using that you can reset your password.
  • Reset using Facebook: In this, you can use facebook login to reset your password.

According to Instagram Help Center:

To reset your password, first tap Forgot? next to Password on the log in screen.

  • To reset through your email address, tap Username or Email, enter your username or the email address you used to create your account and tap search. Choose Send a Password Reset Email.

If you can't access the email you registered with and you didn't link your Instagram account to Facebook, we're not able to give you access to this account.
