What is Instagram app?

Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them either publicly or privately on the app, as well as through a variety of other social networking platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter.

Users can also apply various digital filters to their images. In June 2013, Instagram added support for videos, allowing pre-recorded square standard definition resolution clips of up to 15 seconds to be shared; later updates introduced support for widescreen resolutions of up to 1080p and longer recording times for either pre-recorded (up to one minute) or disappearing live videos (up to one hour).

Instagram was created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, and was launched in October 2010 as a free mobile app, exclusively for the iOS mobile platform via the Apple App Store, but was later released for Android devices two years later, on April 3, 2012.

The service rapidly gained popularity, with over 100 million active users as of April 2012 and over 300 million as of December 2014.

Support for the app is available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Windows 10 devices and Android handsets, while third-party Instagram apps are available for BlackBerry 10 and Nokia-Symbian Devices.

How to safe your Instagram account from hackers?

1. Pick a strong password. Use a combination of at least six numbers, letters and punctuation marks (like! and &). It should be different from other passwords you use elsewhere on the internet.

2. Change your password regularly, especially if you see a message from Instagram asking you to do so.

3. Never give your password to someone you don't know and trust.

4. Make sure your email account is secure. Anyone who can read your email can probably also accesses your Instagram account.

5. Log out of Instagram when you use a computer or phone you share with other people.

6. Don't check the "Remember Me" box when logging in from a public computer, as this will keep you logged in even after you close the browser window.

7. Change the passwords for all of your email accounts and make sure that no two are the same.
