We Have Been Hacked!
Yesterday our Instagram account was hacked and shut down.
For digital creators, this stuff can quickly turn into our worst nightmare. We spent all day securing our virtual assets, changing our passwords on every single website, app, and digital subscription we have.
This morning the hackers brought back our Instagram account and made a spam post to our stories. We do not have any access to our account. We have zero control over what the hackers publish. They can send out messages to others and make it seem as though it’s coming from us…which is our main concern now.
We have made a video explaining the situation to both warn you (if you follow us on Instagram) and ask for your help.
GOOD NEWS! We are back in control of our Instagram account. Thank you all for the support! We had a Patreon that worked for Meta…in the automotive division of all things. She was able to help us through another employee! Unfortunately, I believe without the inside help, we wouldn’t have achieved this. Clearly, there are some severe security issues that need to be addressed within the company. The hacker had been direct messaging our followers and almost had a few fooled into clicking links sent to them. Thankfully, the word about the video spread, and everyone figured out what was happening.
