Connecting Instagram error

I try to connect my instaInst account, and when I enter my username and password an error message keeps coming up about cookies or private browsers restricting access. However, I haven't enabled cookies, nor using a private browser. 


  • How do I get past this to connect my Instagram? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks 

  • Please can anyone give some assistance, has anybody experienced anything similar to this issue?
  • I've found on other message boards that this issue is only occuring in Europe however, I can't seem to find a reason why. 
  • I have the same problem!  Wasted hours trying to get around it :(
  • Me too, I've been trying to figure it out for days now. There's not much spare time in my days so this problem is pretty frustrating for me. Have you had any luck in getting closer to figuring this thing out?
