The Instagram users are experiencing an issue of being unable to log into their Instagram account as the platform isn’t sending the security code to their email. The users enter their email address to get the security code, but they never receive it.
So, here is how to fix Instagram not sending the security code to your email.
1- Email address
The first thing you need to do is to make sure you have entered the right email address. Check it very carefully to prevent any issues.
2- Get help signing in
Open your Instagram App and on the login screen tap on ‘Get Help Signing In.’
- On iPhone:
– Enter your Instagram username or email address and then tap on ‘Other Issues.’
– After that, follow the on-screen instructions.
- On Android:
– Tap on ‘Use Username or Email’’ and include your Username or Email.
– Then, tap on ‘Don’t have access to any of these?’
– You’ll be taken to a page to fill the form stating your issue.
- Instagram will then ask you to take a picture holding a piece of paper with your username, full name, and the specific code they delivered you. If you have successfully performed their verification, a link with more guidance will be sent to you to follow.
3- Phone number
Another way to fix Instagram not sending the security code to Email is by using the phone number option. Enter your phone number to get the security code on your phone.
4- Using Different Tools
Another way to fix Instagram not sending the security code to Email is to try to complete the verification from a different IP address or pc. Usually, some IP addresses are blacklisted by Instagram, particularly those IP addresses that have been used for spamming. Furthermore, if the user uses the same browser to log in to several Instagram accounts, Instagram holds it as a suspicious activity and flag your IP and account.
5- Switch Account
– On the login page of your Instagram app, tap on “switch account” at the bottom of the page.
– A new window will open. Clear the username and password textbox entries if needed.
– Then, click on ‘Log in with Facebook’ and use your Facebook to log in.
6- Incognito/private Window
Use the private window in your browser and check if it helps to neglect you through the security validation screen.
7- Email Filter
Another reason for this issue is due to your email account’s settings. Perhaps you are archiving or removing the emails received from Instagram on their entry. Sometimes, Gmail identifies such emails as spam, or it merely rejects them as spam.
