    It asks for additional confirmation to know that I own the account but the phone number to which the confirmation is being sent is not mine it says the number ends with 76 but mine ends with 06 therefore I can't verify it. Any help would be appreciated

    Do you get the same prompts when trying to log in from a browser? It sounds like the contact phone number is listed incorrectly. Usually, if you log in via a browser and it wants to verify the login, it gives you multiple options including, usually, email.

    Thanks for replying,
    Yes clearly somehow I have wrong Information entered and yes when I try to login from browser it's the same case. I would've had no problem if they asked verification via e-mail because I even tried to change the password to see what happens THROUGH THE E-MAIL. It does let me in, but prompts with the same message again and again to verify the ownership of account with the wrong number making the account unaccessible.
    What do I do now?

    If it let's you access your account, can you just go to the user profile and update the phone number? If it accepts the password but won't let you access the account until you verify your identity, then @ocnbrze is correct, you have to contact Instagram.
