Rufa Mae Quinto is back on Instagram. On Thursday, January 10, the comedienne announced via social media that she finally retrieved her account. 

In an Instagram post, Rufa shared that she found out that her page was hacked on New Year's Day. "2019 started off weirdly for me. I woke up on the first day of the year to the news that my Instagram account was hacked. I was shocked when I figured that someone stole my page! I didn't know what to do. For someone like me who is not techy, I quite panicked knowing that the hacker might do something bad using my page and I was clueless on how to retrieve it! More than anything, I was scared that the hacker would harm my family and friends using the power of technology," she stated.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

It is never too late to start a new BEGINNING. 2019 started off weirdly for me. I woke up on the first day of the year to the news that my Instagram account was hacked. I was shocked when I figured that someone stole my page! I didn't know what to do. For someone like me who is not techy, I quite panicked knowing that the hacker might do something bad using my page and I was clueless on how to retrieve it! More than anything, I was scared that the hacker would harm my family and friends using the power of technology. Thankfully, God sent His angels to help me retrieve my page. A big thank you to Ms. Betchay Vidanes @betchayvidanes and her whole team for helping me get back my Instagram page. I am very grateful as well to the people behind @instagram for working hand in hand with us for my account to be returned. Also, I would like to thank my family and friends for all the advice and suggestions you gave me when I was still solving my social media predicament. I love you all! I made a lot of realizations when my page was stolen. I found a silver lining (yes I am quoting you our Miss Universe @catriona_gray) amid my ordeal. For an artist like me, Instagram is such a big platform to inspire, influence and spread happiness to my fans. Hence, I realized that I should take more measures to protect it and secure it in order to prevent something like this to happen again. Most of my photos were deleted by the hacker so I decided to start all over. I will be archiving and removing what remains of my old photos and start anew. Hope you will join me as I begin again. Thank you very much everyone. I am so happy to be back! This is Rufa Mae Quinto-Magallanes, Philippines! Now signing in! #Gogogo #thesilverlining
