Have you tried to sign in to it?

Customer Replay

Yeah but they asked you questions I don't remember my username is OG get money

Do you have access to the email address linked to your Instagram account?


Customer Replay

I still have it on my old phone but it's not on how do I retrieve it

Your grandson couldn't delete your account without the password. Most likely, he just signed out of your account.

Customer Replay

I guess he held on delete apps you know how you delete different apps that's what he deleted
It's probably still there but I don't know how to recover it I just pulled my old phone up it's on my old phone how do I get it back to this phone
