Hacked, yes my Instagram @a.joyful.life was hacked. Last Monday, a normal Monday night I checked my email to find that I had a email from my hackers telling me that I had three hours to contact them or my account would be deleted or sold. Instead of contacting them I got back into my account to find they had already changed my name and my contact email; so I changed them back and changed my password and turned on the two factor authentication. We went back and forth for awhile; they would change things and I would change them back until I got logged out. When I attempted to log back in it said my account was set to be deleted, then I searched for it and could not find it.

And Just like that- my profile, my feed, all the pictures, all the connections and 23K followers gone. Needless to say I was in shock (still kind of am). I threw myself a pity party for all of about 2 minutes then I got up and started over. My new account is @thejoyfullifeof6.

Thankful I have my wonderful family and wonderful friends. Hopefully I will be able to find and connect with all the amazing people that I had connected with in my other account.
