I have not been able to recover my Instagram account after it was hacked because the “Request Form” has been removed. The only other form on the Help Center for hacked accounts is a feedback form that doesn’t get a response. Now if I try with a username with low followers, the “Request Form” does show up. Do you know why usernames with a lot followers do not get the form?
No the user form should come up as normal no matter what. I suggest if your phone is compromised that you use another phone to try and report the issue. After all the steps requires you identify your account and it should work regardless of the phone you are on.
