Support » Plugin: WP Social Post And Widget » Challenge required for connection

  • Resolved olivermerk


    After using it successful for several months I had problems that a WP post was not posted to Instagram. For testing I removed the user from this plugin and entered the user data again. Now I get the error “InstagramAPI\Response\LoginResponse: Challenge required.”

    I can confirm on my browser that it was me, who has tried to log into Instagram, however, still the problem persists. I guess if it would be possible to send the 6 digit challenge, that I get on my phone, via the plugin to Instagram, my login would be accepted. However, this is not possible, as it is via the browser login to Instagram.

    How can I get a successful login to Instagram? 2FA is not activated on this account.

    Thanks for your quick help.
    Best regards,

    Within few tries, “This was me” click, it should resolve as you were already login from your web server.
    You may try with a break. Like a day or two and keep repeating it. But don’t try continuously.

    The plugin is compatible with 2FA but it will work after Instagram accepts that “this was you”. That’s why you don’t need to activate 2FA for this issue.




    Thanks for your reply.

    It is again working now. I’ve kept clicking on the “This was me” button after some tries to connect via your plugin. I did this for 2-3 days approx 3-4 times a day, then, all of a sudden, when I checked the user connection in your plugin the next day, I had the green checkmark back.

    Best regards,
