Esha Deol tweeted about her Instagram account hack
Actress Esha Deol on Sunday tweeted that her Instagram account was hacked and her account's display name was changed to 'Instagram Support'. The actress tweeted, "Please don't reply to any message if you received any from my Instagram account". Recently, Instagram accounts of singer Asha Bhosle, actor-politician Urmila Matondkar and other celebrities were also hacked in a similar pattern.
Later she announced that her Instagram account has been restored, hours after getting hacked. She took to social media to thank her staff and the support team at the photo-sharing app for their prompt action in resolving the issue. She also asked her followers to be vigilant and not click on any unverified links.
She wrote, "Just wanted to update you all that my Instagram account has been restored. I take this opportunity to thank the support team at Instagram, especially Sudhanshu, who was extremely prompt and quick to take necessary actions (sic)."
She added, "Please be vigilant about anyone hacking your account specifically, don't click on any links without verification ever! Apologies for the inconvenience caused. Thank you to my Followers for standing by me (sic)."
