I know, I know. I’m pretty embarrassed about having done this but I’m sure I’m not the only one! I got excited and was using it before I found this forum.
For those of you who didn’t make the mistake, here’s what happened. I downloaded the app onto my iPhone, logged in through an instagram authorization and began putting up 6.5 second videos. You could upload videos (not JUST create them in the app, it was as if the app was already “jailbroken”) which was an awesome improvement to the original app. My fake v2 account automatically followed 26 people. I gained 5 followers in the two days I had the app. I noticed that the people I automatically followed had no more than 20 videos uploaded yet had 92,000-93,000 followers. It was a bit laggy but a fun experience for creation. They had a bunch of sound effects loaded in to layer with video.
I revoked the app’s access to my instagram account and logged out. I’ll be uninstalling th app shortly. Any suggestions on keeping my instagram account safe? I’m a bit worried about it after this.
