First of all, please keep in mind that our support for Instagram is unofficial. Officially, Instagram does not support 3rd party apps, does not provide API and using Pixbuf for Instagram sharing is a violation of Instagram terms. In the worst scenario, your Instagram account can be blocked. (We don't know about any cases like that, but it can happen).
If you're brave enough to use Instagram support in Pixbuf, there are some workarounds you can try if you have troubles connecting or sharing to Instagram:
- Two-factor authentication - If you've turned it on on your Instagram account, please turn it off. 3rd party apps cannot work with your account if you've activated two-factor authentication
- When you have troubles with sharing or connecting to Instagram, please try to login to your Instagram from your mobile phone - maybe you'll see a security warning from Instagram, that someone was trying to access your account. Tell them that everything is ok if the dates corresponds with Pixbuf usage. Also, our servers are currently in Czech Republic, Europe - so if you receive information about this location, everything is fine.
If it does not help, please contact us and we will try to solve your troubles.
Thanks for using Pixbuf!
