First off, yes, you *can* get hacked just sitting there doing nothing, clicking on anything, opening anything. It’s just not likely. Second, this is a bad question. The answer to “can I be hacked by …” is always yes, sometimes it’s unlikely, but it’s never no.

A better question is are there any known vulnerabilities in whatever browser you’re using, or the Instagram app, and could any of those vulnerabilities be exploited by user content from an Instagram post or DM. I don’t know of any in current stable Chrome or Firefox, so if you get hacked, it’s a high skill breach, so, not likely, unless your famous, wealthy, or in possession of state or IP secrets.
