Tom advised fans to be careful after some had been exploited by scam accounts pretending to be him.
In a statement to his 8.9 million Instagram followers on Tuesday, he wrote: "I have said this once but I’ll say it one last time because apparently people are still falling for this.
"I have never used any account other than my official Twitter TomEllis17 or my official Instagram OfficialTomEllis, both of which have blue tics to verify that it is me.”
He added to fans that he does not use Gmail, Facebook or Hangouts, so they shouldn't respond to anyone saying they are him on those platforms.

This isn't the first time Tom has had to issue such a bleak warning.
Back in 2017 he had to tell fans to block an account which was posing as him and trying to scam money from people.
He wrote: "Please don’t give money to this fake account. It’s not me.”
Last month, Tom posted a much happier message on social media, leaving fans thrilled as he shared a picture of himself working out.
