Cant connect to instagram

I am having trouble linking an instagram account to my hootsuite account. When I log into to Instagram within Hootsuite I get an error message that says "The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed"

The page hasnt been removed because I can log into instagram directly. Do you have any idea why this might be happening?

  • Hi @ARTURO

    Thanks for reaching out to us. I wanted to ask some questions just to make sure that we are on the same page. When you are trying to connect your Instagram, are you trying to connect it to your dashboard, or your mobile phone? You will have to set up your Instagram on both to be able to publish on Instagram. Please try to disconnect and reconnect your Instagram account to see if that helps. I have attached an Instagram FAQ for your to reference. 

    Please let me know if you are still having issues and we can create a support issue for us to take a closer look.  

    Thank you,
