    I'm yet another now former user of Instagram with the same problem. I'm in Israel and I've tried 97253XXXXXXX +97253XXXXXXX and no matter what I put, no text. I waited for a few days did the same things and again no text. I had a friend tell me that what happened is someone reported you or complained about something you did and this is just Instagrams way of locking you out of Instagram permanently. And when you make a new Instagram it sees it from either the phone's IP or the IP of your ISP and voila the message pops back up on the new account and once again you're locked out of Instagram. So I finally said screw Instagram and I'm just forgetting about Instagram. Hopefully this little trick they're pulling if they continue to have it up will kill off Instagram permanently!

      Everytime I try to login it asks for a security code saying to check my email despite the fact that I didnt get any. I seriously dont want to loose my acc.This literally sucks.

    This has been a problem since so long and yet the solution is not provided by Instragram tech team. Shame!!! I created an account for my travel photographs a day ago. Followed some accounts, posted one photograph and was excited to get good response right from the word go. But the joy was short-lived. This security code thing has been so irritating! I looked up the issue on google...and found out that i m not alone! haha..tried all sorts of suggestions..nothing worked! and the worst thing is I can t delete your account as they won t let me do anything till I enter the security code. But how do i enter security code when you didn t send one!!! I am so fed up I am creating another account... the old account will get deleted i guess when Instagram is once again on a cleaning spree.

    I've lost 7 pages due to this security error. I would make one ig page then this message would randomly pop up. they would never send me the code, and i would endup locked out my account. That's when i made another, same thing happened 6 more times..... ive emailed ig several times about this bug. But they would never do anything to help. It's as if they just don't care at all... instagram needs tp understand that not everyone is out to spam. Stop treating the innocent as if we're all freaking spam bots!!

    It didn't work on my phone but I typed in my dad's phone number and he got the text! But then I went to type in the code they send me and it said "Error, This field is required" and it hasn't let me back in, even though I've typed in the security code! I think Instagram might be down because I should have gotten my account back like 2 weeks ago! And it won't let me delete the account unless I type in that code, which it won't let me, this is so frustrating!

    Source(s): Help, I just want my account back! ):

    Solution: i heard someone say that they think your account is a spam meaning your supposed to only post 50 times a day and like and comment someone else says to log out of your account for 4 days then log back in a press retry if this doesn't work, make a new account report the same issue and go off for i guess 2 more dayd then go back on. Sorry if this didn't help,

    Instagram asking me for a security code to verify my mibail number I asking them to send me text message by email

  • 5 years ago

    I've had the problem since my first day of Instagram. I mean, it wants to keep your account secure from hackers which is a good thing, but there is no darn reason for them to not send a security code to my mobile number. Does anyone have the problem with their cell phone? Because I just have TextNow Classic. Very stupid!!!!! Anyone agree with me???
