How to change or reset Instagram password on iPhone

Being a popular photo-sharing platform, Instagram stores plenty of personal data. For instance, my account has photos from 2013 – my college days! Hence, it is crucial to keep it secure, and one way to ensure this is by changing the Instagram password frequently.

Alternatively, if you believe your account has been compromised in a password breach, or you’ve forgotten your existing Instagram password, here is how you can change or reset it on your iPhone, Android, or desktop.

Before we begin: Make sure not to use a weak, easily guessable password. Always use a combination of at least six numbers, letters, punctuation symbols, etc. You can also let the iCloud Keychain or a third-party password manager suggest a long, complicated password.
