Instagram has been one of the most cherished, beloved and highly loved social media platforms. But lately, the app is gaining all the press owing to a simple hashtag. We are talking about #Embedded and we are sure you too have come across it in recent days.
Instagram users spread the word about this hashtag in their posts and direct messages to trick their contacts. But a harmless prank related to #embedded on Instagram is also becoming a disaster for many. In this post, you will learn about this hashtag, why it’s trending and why there’s so much discussion surrounding it.
When you search #Embedded on Instagram, as expected it opens a tab where you get to see all the posts made on the site with the hashtag. But here’s the catch, if you try to open any of the posts from the #embedded page, Instagram will automatically log out of your account from your smartphone.
Not only this, but the password of your Instagram account will also be instantly changed in seconds, and this can leave you in a dilemma. A notification will appear up on your screen that states, “You’ve been logged out of the account. The account owner may have changed the password”.
After Instagram logs your account out, you will have to change your password once again to restore your account eventually. While many users are quickly getting their accounts back, many are encountering issues logging in again.
When you look for #Embedded on Instagram, you will see that nothing significant is happening because it is an error that has gone undiscovered. It’s becoming increasingly mainstream, and individuals are utilizing it to play jokes on their friends.
The issue is manifesting on the Instagram mobile app, while the desktop version of the app is unaffected by the popular hashtag.
Even though this bug is harmless, we advise you to steer clear of it and not look for #Embedded on Instagram until the platform officially fixes the issue.
