Do not panic. Breathe. Now, try to log back in; your Instagram account is safe and sound.
Instagram users were affected earlier today by a bug that logged out their accounts, leading many to believe that their profiles had been hacked. However, the image-sharing site confirmed on Twitter that everything is just fine.
You will be able to log back in as normal, though it may take longer than usual. No passwords were changed as part of this issue.

The error many Instagram users saw asked them to change their account password, which usually happens when there is some sort of security breach. Not the case, says Instagram.
