Suspicious Activity Warning from Instagram When Connecting Your Account

After you connect your dashboard and calendar to your Instagram account, you might receive a notification from Instagram saying, “Suspicious Login Attempt” and “We Detected an Unusual Login Attempt”. This might worry you because your account is being hacked and is in danger. Don’t panic! You’re not the only one; there is nothing to worry about.  This message is generated based on the difference in the Internet Protocol (IP) address our intelligent automation systems use.

In this article, we will explain why this happens and answer some questions you might have.

Why Did I receive This Notification?

We use an automatic system to share and publish content on your Instagram account. Since it is done on your behalf from a different geographical location than where you usually would share content, Instagram flags it as a suspicious activity because when accounts are hacked, the same things can happen to them. But rest assured everything is alright, and your account is safe.

Why Does This Happen?

Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms among users. That makes it popular with hackers, too. Therefore, they try to break into random accounts and gain access. To prevent account hacks and to make sure accounts are secure, Instagram closely monitors accounts’ activity. When something does not make sense or seems out of the ordinary, Instagram notifies users to alarm them about a possible security issue with their account. This level of strict measures for account security sometimes results in false alarms that flag safe actions that match Instagram’s algorithms of suspicious activity.

But Is My Account Safe?

Yes, absolutely. When you connect your dashboard to your Instagram account, your credentials are only used to post content on your behalf using our intelligent automated systems. Your account is safe, and all data you share with us are safe. Thousands of agents trust roomvu to keep their data safe. As one of the leading social media automation solutions for real estate, we are dedicated to creating a safe and secure platform for our users. It is super critical to us that your data remains safe.

What do I need to Do?

Since this notification is generated due to the different IPs our automation systems use, your accounts are safe, and there is nothing you need to do. Just keep using your dashboard. If Instagram asks you to verify your identity, follow the instructions provided by Instagram, which will ask you to enter a code sent to your email address or your phone number.
