Instagram Easy Hack Reveals Private Accounts In A Jiffy

By  | 

For more than a week now users of Instagram have been using a new feature that means they can manage multiple accounts through one app. However there are some issues with it that need to be worked on an one issue is a nasty bug that allows others to see your personal notifications.

The Instagram easy hack comes into play if there are more than two people managing the single Instagram account along with their own account. Each person who manages the shared account is then able to receive notification for the personal account of everyone else for a short period. The bug was captured working by several users of Instagram.

The Instagram push notifications go to the person in align with the settings that the original holder of the account set up and more often than not they don’t lead to anything if you tap them. Most times you are taken to your own account. However the notifications do give away information, including the names of people and photos and often a snippet of information from the comment.

While this isn’t the end of the world and it could be worse, it is still a huge oversight for Instagram and it needs to be fixed. All we know at the moment is that they are aware of the issue and they are working on it.
