Sign in securely

As with any other internet service, it is important to take into account certain recommendations when accessing your account. This is mainly due to the fact that you would be entering sensitive information (personal data) when logging in, so you should make sure that the place where you do it is really safe. In order to increase the security of your account, we give you some tips to log in safely:

  • If the PC or mobile from which you will log in is not yours, use the ” Incognito mode ” of the browser so that your personal data is not recorded.
  • Periodically change your password to keep your account safe.
  • If you use the application, log out when finished and make sure that your access data is not saved.
  • Assign a valid phone number to your account, as well as an active email address.
  • If you have linked your Facebook account on Instagram, make sure to exercise the same caution with your Facebook account, as anyone who has access to it will also have access to your Instagram.
  • Do not use the same access data in different services.
