  • Hello!

    To maintenance mode, I’ve disabled and enabled the “WP Social Post And Widget” plugin
    and after this can’t connect to instagram. Keep getting we detected an unusual loin attempt, keep hitting “This Was Me” but it still won’t go through.

    I’ve tried pressing ‘This was me’ about 20 times in different days and I’m still getting the same challenge error.

    Also I’ve tried install the 1.6 plugin version but I’m still getting the same challenge error.

    I’ve tried the next steps:

    1.- Have google chrome or install google chrome cause its what I did it on
    2.- Go to and in your address bar it should now show or something similar.
    3.- This is were you will delete cookies from this site to stop them from replaying the same error message over and over… even if you have the right sms code. Go to step 4!
    4.- Click green lock button(website security verification) in your address bar (top left on screen) and go to site settings.
    5.- Once there click the back button in the setting option NOT the actual back button to take you to your previous webpage but the little arrow button to go back in the setting.
    6.- Then click cookies option
    7.- Then click “see all cookies and site data”
    8.- “Search cookie” should show in the search bar in the top right
    9.- Search Instagram and all your cookies come up
    10.- Delete ALL cookies and go back to
    11.- Finished and should let you log in hopefully.

    But I’m still getting the same challenge error…

    I’ve tried the next steps via the web version:

    1.- You have to log in Instagram,
    2.- Go to the settings and mark “Temporarily disable my account”,
    3.- From the list of the proposed reasons choose “Login issues”.
    4.- Of course, your account itself won’t disappear and after a couple of hours you can get back to it. The process of enabling your account again should be done via the mobile app. It should be noted that with such algorithm no problems with authorization should longer be observed.

    But I’m still getting the same challenge error…

    Any idea? Because it’s very frustrating for me

    Sorry for late reply.
    Well only disabling and enabling the plugin should not raise any login issue until you change hosting or change your server’s IP. Or delete all previous login sessions etc.

    But if you are receiving login error then its just a matter of time and you will connect again.

    Hope till now, you would be able to connect.

    Let us know about it.
