a Woman has revealed how she caught her ex chasing her on her Instagram profile.
TikToker Mel D revealed in a short video how he saw a fake account belonging to his ex.
In popular tiktok videos, @therealmeld tells other users what to do if they suspect there is indeed someone they know.
She added: “So a few months ago I caught my ex following me on this fake account because I blocked him.”
She then went on to reveal how she filmed her spies’ Tiktok in February, but she feels that now she can post it too.
The next clip shows her scrolling through the accounts that have seen one of her Instagram stories.
She clicks on an account with no profile picture, zero posts, and zero followers.
The account also had a strange username that was a jumble of letters and numbers, hence potentially standing out for being a ‘fake account’.
TikToker wrote on the screen: “What a ‘forgot password’ trick.”
This means he noted down the usernames of the suspicious accounts, logged out of his own Instagram and then tried to login with the suspicious username.
He typed the account name and then clicked Forgot Password.
A screen will then appear explaining that a link to create a new password will be sent to the email or phone number associated with the account.
Although most letters or numbers are starred, TikToker can detect that the phone number associated with that account belongs to its previous one.
Keep in mind that you should never really hack someone else’s account because it is a cybercrime.
