Hello, I’m sorry to hear about that.

After doing some research, it seems that there isn’t much you can do about it. However, there are many Instagram users that have the same problem and they say it may be related to another app: the Followers app. They often encounter this problem after unfollowing someone on it. This may be because, in this case, the Followers app needs you to re-enter your password, which Instagram identifies as entering your password on a website designed to look like Instagram/third party app or, in other words, as a phishing attack.

Good luck.
