Fans or Hackers Attempt to Get Into Li Xian's Instagram Account

Social media hacks are increasing day by day and if you’re a celebrity or an influencer who has a ton of followers, the chances of you being targeted are even higher. That’s the hair raising situation Go Go Squid! actor Li Xian found himself in when several notifications of attempts to reset his IG password and access his account popped up on his email.

Followed by 1.6 million fans, the actor usually posts selfies of himself and his travels as well as updates on his projects on his Insta account. Pretty sure any weird posts peddling stuff or redirecting fans to different accounts to follow won’t go down so well hey.

Li Xian's Studio has also issued a warning to folks with malicious intent, saying “the privacy of an individual's personal account on social media should be respected and protected. Please stop malicious acts that infringe on the privacy of others, or we will hold you accountable for the violations to Mr. Li Xian ’s privacy.”

Who do you think is responsible for the attempted breach? Hackers or overzealous fans? I’m leaning towards the fans simply because of the multiple failed attempts. But either way, this is definitely a worrying issue.

  1. Tsk Tsk. definitely amateur fans who aren't too sophisticated at hacking. He would be in real trouble if it was a hacker who knew what they were doing. Anyway, this is wrong whoever or whichever group is trying to do this. Li Xian has always been the very quiet type when concerning his private life, please keep it that way. Enjoy his star presence in the form of supporting his work.

  2. I had such experience from hacking who stole my website domain.
    It is a nightmare.

    1. Oh no! I hope you were able to get it back alright.

  3. The same thing happened to Ren Jia Lun the other day on IG too. I don't know why people do this, but they need to learn how to leave these celebrities alone. Give them their privacy and human rights.
