I hate Instagram and Instagram apparently hates me!

I can’t stand using Instagram and only use it to communicate about my art and photography with organizations and businesses in my town and State because they seem to prefer it. IMHO it has just about the worst designed UI I’ve ever used. Well, yesterday Instagram decided to lock me out of my account with no notice and for no apparent reason and require me to submit my phone number in order to receive a verification code from them that would allow me to sign back in.

I’ve never given FB my tel number but begrudgingly filled it in to their pop up screen that demanded it. After submitting I got the verification screen with a field to put in the code they claimed was sent to my tel number. Well, of course, no verification code is ever sent. I googled the issue which apparently is pretty common, tried the solutions and wasn’t surprised to see that nothing worked and I’m still locked out. Sigh.
