    Hi,

    You are login from your web server and your Web Server location maybe different from your routine Instagram login location.
    To resolve this, simply login to your Instagram account via the official website or your mobile device. You will see ‘unusual login attempt’ warning there. Press ‘This was me’ few times and Instagram will accept your new location.
    The area which is showing in “unusual login attempt” warning, is your Web Server location.
    If Instagram don’t accept your new location after many tries, then you have the option to use PROXY.

    I’ve been seeing the same thing, two posts since I installed the plugin… I’ve told Instagram it was me both times. How often or how many times would it take for them to accept it? I don’t see any options in Instagram to approve sources manually. 🙁

    Hi,

    You mean after updating new version, you are Challenge required again?
    Well your previous login session over written by new version. But don’t worry, within few tries, it will resume.

    You can now see response message at plugin’s login page.

    The same here: the plugin was working for quite a time, but after the latest update Instagram keeps throwing the challenge error again and again (about a dozen times already).

    I’ve tried and I recieved the pop up to verify a few times and said yes this was me every time. Now I do not get that pop up; this just started happening yesterday if there was an update between Thursday and Monday then yes it started after the update.

    It still will not post to my Instagram. I’ve been trying to get it to repost again without success.

    Tried again today 3 times and multiple times yesterday. As I stated I don’t get the option to click that it’s me logging in. It just doesn’t post.

    I logged into Instagram on my laptop and logged out of everything then logged back in and tried again – no luck.

    I feel like the “update” broke it for many people.

    Hi,

    The plugin stores login session in its folder and with update, folder replaced and login session overwritten. It should be login again but a few users complain that its not login.

    @sweetlilwolf please see login page and check Response in red. In your case, it maybe different, that’s why you may not get notice of unusual login attempt.

    Instagram may take different time for different users but sooner or later, it will accept new location.

    Hi,

    This is what the red sentence in red says:
    “InstagramAPI\Response\LoginResponse: Challenge required.”

    I understand it says this in your FAQs:
    I am receiving the error “Couldn’t get challenge, check your connection”?
    You need to login to your account via Instagram’s website to verfity your account.

    However, I’ve done this and it is still not working; im not getting anything to verify when i log into Instagram either.

    Is there something i should be changing somewhere? I do not know where this folder is that you mentioned either.

    Thank you
