Turns out we all may be “high profile” in the eyes of Instagram. 

A bug in the social media company’s API reportedly allowed hackers to gain access to account holders’ phone numbers and email addresses, with Instagram assuring everyone on Aug. 30 that it was the celebs of the world who were targeted. But that was then.
