There you can see the currently active session, i.e. the one from which you logged in (the inscription «active now» appears), when that session was started and also indicate the area with the country and an approximate location on a map, since therefore you will be able deduce whether it was you or not.

It should just appear an active session, i.e. from the one you are entering now on Instagram, if you access on other devices with another Instagram account they will also appear there, but if you detect that there are sessions from other countries and that you do not recognize in any way, you can close them immediately by clicking on them and selecting “exit”.

From the Instagram site

If you have detected that there is indeed an unrecognized session, it is that someone has entered your profile and the first thing faster is close the session as we have indicated in the previous paragraph, but then you have to make another drastic decision, that of change your Instagram password.

That someone has broken into yours Instagram it means that he knows your data, including the password, and this is the one you need to change to a stronger and longer one, it must contain a minimum of 8 characters and where uppercase, lowercase, numbers and even symbols are combined..

It doesn't matter that it's complicated and hard to find out, it's better to have it written in a place that only you know and you have to put it whenever it's simple and easy to find out, and also for hacks, but that's not the point, because there are other decisions you can make.

You must turn on Instagram two-step authentication, which gives your Instagram account a additional level of security since, when you log into any device with your account, an additional code will be requested which comes via SMS, which makes it more complicated for authorized persons to log in since they would need to have access to your mobile to see the SMS.
