Instagram Original Email and Safe Ownership Transfer

An original (first) email address plays an important role in full transfer of title to an Instagram account. For some time, our marketplace allowed selling the accounts with an original email only, in order to minimize fraud occurrences. However, we have decided to withdraw from this limitation. Still, we highly recommend you to buy accounts with an original email option only.

In this article, you will learn more about Instagram original email, its functionality, and also find out how to check an original email of your account from different devices.

What Is Instagram Original Email

Instagram Original Email is the first email to which an Instagram account was registered. Please note: it does not matter how many times you change an email; your first email still keeps Instagram Original Email status and remains the most important tool to restore an account or a password.

Why Instagram Original Email Is So Important

In 2019, Instagram introduced a new function of restoring an account with the help of Instagram Original Email. After launching this new feature, an owner can restore an account with the help of the first email even if he has changed the details long ago.

Here the problems with the purchase of Instagram accounts begin.

Let’s have a look at an example.

You buy an Instagram account, link it to a new email and change a password. After receiving the money transfer, the seller enters login to his account and presses “Forgot Password” without a feeling of remorse. The system offers a couple of ways to recover your password. One of them is sending an authorization email to the initial mailbox. The user enters the account and changes the password. As a result, you are left without your purchase and your money.

There is always a risk to come across an unfair seller who will recover his rights to an account after your payment. However, if you receive an account with the details of the first email, you will practically reduce this risk to zero.

How to Save Yourself from Fraud

In order not to get on the hook of the unfair sellers, you should follow a couple of rules:

  • If you would like to buy an Instagram account, choose among the pages with Original Email.
  • Also, we recommend buying from the sellers who already have transactions on our website (such users have Trusted or Verified badges).
  • Along with the account, you should receive the information necessary to enter an Original Email.
  • First of all, change your password to enter your mailbox, and then — to enter the account.
  • Choose a reliable password and do not lose it.
  • Do not follow suspicious links on your email. It often happens that criminals who need access to the accounts are hiding behind unexpected messages from technical support or generous sponsors. Just be careful and check the sender’s email address attentively.

We check all the necessary data at the stage of transferring the access and money. Thus, the user of our website who decides to buy an account will definitely receive access to an Original Email as well (if the original email option was indicated in the listing).

If you still have decided to buy an account without an original email, you should try to find out why the seller cannot provide you with the original email data. The seller may have no intention to deceive you: the access to the email could have been lost or blocked.

How to check your Instagram Original Email

As we have already mentioned, an original email is an important element of the transaction. But what if you just do not remember whether you have changed your details? It’s simple. With General Data Protection Regulation, you can get access to all the details of your account including the email change history. Thus, you can always check which email was the first one, that is, the original one. In order to check the data, follow simple instructions.

How to check Instagram Original Email from iPhone

  1. Go to the account you need.
  2. Open the menu.
  3. Choose “Settings”.
  4. Choose “Security”.
  5. Choose “Access Data”.
  6. Find “Former email addresses” section and press “View All”.
  7. This list displays the email address change history. The last email on this list is an original one. If the email has been changed many times, you will have to expand the list. If you see the message “Your account doesn’t have any information to show here.” it means that the email has never been changed, and the current email is an original email (you can check that in Settings).

How to check Instagram Original Email from Android

For Android phones, you can view the email change history just like on iPhones (see the instruction above). Graphic instruction is provided below.

  6. This list displays the email address change history. The last email on this list is an original one. If the email has been changed many times, you will have to expand the list. If you see the message “Your account doesn’t have any information to show here.” it means that the email has never been changed, and the current email is an original email (you can check that in Settings).

Our Attitude to Instagram Policy

We understand the motifs of Instagram regarding the Original Email because this way the network protects its users from fraud offenders and allows them to return their rights for their accounts in case of hacking. It turns out, however, that you will no longer be able to recover access to your account when you forget the details of your first mailbox or lose them due to fraud.

Also, this approach creates problems for selling and buying accounts without transferring the rights to the original email. This is because we cannot guarantee that the seller will not recover its rights to the account after your payment.

For security reasons, from 01 September 2019 we have ceased processing escrow transactions for the accounts without an original email. We realize that many users have simply lost the details necessary to enter the initial email, and have no intention of fraud. But, since we are not able to check our website users’ intentions, we have followed this rule.

Starting from 1 May 2020, we renew the transactions without an original email. As practice has shown, fraudsters are trying to avoid the escrow service in all the possible ways, and offer the buyers to conduct the transaction directly, arguing that our escrow does not conduct transactions without an original email. Currently, for the accounts without an original email, only one transaction method will be available — purchase with escrow.com, for more security.

We wish you successful transactions for your business development!
