IP addresses are assigned to devices, not accounts.

 

A Microsoft account, Gmail account, etc., does not have an IP address while your devices on your home network, the modem or modem-router that connects you to the internet at large, etc., do have IP (Internet Protocol) addresses.

 

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_address as a basic reference.

The accounts don't, but various service providers can and do keep track of where a given account is typically accessed from as far as the IP address(es) go.

 

If I sign into my Google account from a new device (even if it's from home) or from an odd location if I'm using my laptop on the road both get flagged with a security e-mail message so I can react if it wasn't me that logged in.

 

This can also sometimes be triggered if your ISP changes where your modem-router hooks into their own network.  Mine is such that the world that uses network location to try to pinpoint me believes I'm about 2 hours south of where I actually am.  There are occasions where network topography gets changed and it suddenly appears to your various service providers who keep track of this sort of thing as though you're now connecting from an "odd location for you."

So the main problem was bypassing the suspicious login attempt but this person told me to make a vpn and connect it to where i used the instagram account before.

I'm still not quite sure what the problem is.

 

If you've physically moved, this kind of warning will occur when you first try to log in.

 

If you use a VPN, and you haven't been using one, that makes it appear you are logging in from elsewhere you will trigger this sort of warning.

 

I have never known of a service provider to forbid completion of the login if the correct account and password can be provided, regardless of where the login is coming from.  If it happens to be coming in from an atypical location (whether actual or secondary to VPN use) it is typical these days for a warning message to be generated to make the actual owner know that it has occurred.  You, as the actual owner, should be able to figure out whether it was you or not.

Suss activity, you are vague in your intent with this thread as Britechguy says!

If you want to hack instagram accounts, go elsewhere or learn yourself.....we wont teach you!

 

I have seen your other related thread.

You have, then, essentially created a catch-22.

 

There is really nothing anyone here can do if you gave Instagram a contact method for you to which you don't have access.  You just don't do this, ever, for precisely the reason you're now encountering.  It's simple enough to create a junk e-mail account dedicated specifically to the receipt of registration codes, etc.   If it happens to be a Gmail account you can also set up a Google Voice phone number associated with it to allow codes to be texted to you using that number.

 

At this point further assistance would best be sought through Instagram support, and I am not hopeful at all that they will help out unless they used other verification means like security questions that you would be able to provide the answers to if one of their support rep asks.

You had a topic in 'Web-browsing, etc.' - now locked -  https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/665830/instagram-suspicious-login-attempt/

 

You have another active topic there -  https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/665830/instagram-suspicious-login-attempt/

 

This is not a networking problem. You have been told several times that your only hope of success is to contact Instagram help, you have even been given the link to their help page.

 

This topic is now closed.
