Can I connect an Instagram account with Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) activated?

Yes, you can connect your Instagram account with our alternative Browser Cookie method. All you need is a logged in Instagram account on your browser and follow [this short tutorial.}(https://blog.storrito.com/instagram/2018/09/21/instagram-sessionid-cookie)

If you need features that are only supported by our normal Username + Password method, please deactivate the Two-Factor authentication, connect your account by typing in your credentials, and activate 2FA again when you successfully saved the connection.

Disabling 2FA through the Instagram App:

Click on your profile at the bottom right of your screen.
Click the 'Menu' icon indicated by three little lines at the top
right of your screen, then click "Settings" at the bottom.
Under "Privacy and Security", click "Two-Factor Authentication" and
make sure that BOTH Text Message and Authentication App options are
DISABLED.

Disabling 2FA through the Instagram Website:

Open Instagram.com and login.
At the top right of your screen, click the profile icon.
To the right of "Edit Profile", click the gear icon to access
settings, then click "Privacy and Security".
Scroll down and under "Two-Factor Authentication", click "Edit
Two-Factor Authentication Settings".
Make sure that BOTH "Text Message" and "Authentication App" boxes
are UNCHECKED.
