    You need to enter the code to complete the verification step. Please enter the code as soon as you receive it, as it will expire in a short period of time.

  • You may see a notifcation on Instagram similar to this.  You need to select "This was me" in order to complete the connection.

    If you’re still stuck in the loop after trying these fixes, please wait 1-2 days before you try again.

    Note: This link may expire after some time, so please use it as soon as possible. If the link is sent more than once, make sure you use the last link that was sent (and not the old one).




  • Unexpected login error 

    This type of errors is a rare one, but sometimes you may see it for some accounts. If you face this error, then there are two possible issues:

    1. It's Instagram temporarily down and you just need to repeat after a while;
    2. It's something wrong with the account itself and you need to try to login directly on Instagram website to find what is going on. In most cases it's Instagram requires some special sort of additional verification.
