Here are some of the common issues we have seen from Instagram.
Sometimes your Instagram account can get disconnected. While you are disconnected, we cannot fetch any Instagram photos for you. Here are some of the reasons as to why this can happen:
- You changed your password
- Instagram detect suspicious activity on your account
- You have not used the site for a while and Instagram logs you out
- You change your Facebook page or other information
- ...and many more
The solution is simple. You can re-connect via the Instagram settings and click on "Connect Instagram". For reference, you can navigate to this settings page via Account → Settings.
Cannot Track Certain Hashtags
This can happen for the following reasons:
- Your hashtags may be deemed inappropriate or have adult content.
- Your hashtags may not exist yet.
In any case, we are here to support you so please reach out if you encounter any issues.
