For most social media apps, it would be as simple as changing your password, or setting up two-factor authentication. And if you don’t know how to do that, there are plenty of guides online.

As far as the forgotten password token is concerned, we don’t need to worry about security. The password you create is not stored anywhere, so as long as you didn’t write it down and are not sharing it with anyone, it’s not going to help anyone. It’s just a token that you have to enter in order to reactivate your account.
