New Instagram tool to help users spot phishing emails

San Francisco, Oct 8 (SocialNews.XYZ) Instagram is introducing a new way for its users to help them identify phishing emails and safeguard themselves against hackers.

According to a report in CNET on Monday, the new feature by Facebook-owned photo-sharing service will display genuine emails the company sent you.

"Bad actors are getting better at imitating emails from Instagram, and it is becoming increasingly difficult for people to distinguish between a genuine email and a fake one," an Instagram spokesperson said in a statement.

 

This is how it will work.

Go to settings and click on the security tab. There will be an option to see "Emails from Instagram."

One tab labeled security will show you a list of emails the company sent you.

The "other" tab will display emails Instagram sent that aren't related to security issues.

According to Instagram, users shouldn't click on a link in an email that appears to be from the company, if they can't verify.
