Important: please read Instagram's Community Guidelines and make sure you follow them before using Loola.

Loola uses the standard Instagram OAuth authentication bind your Instagram account.

You will need to install the Loola Chrome extension to successfully complete the authentication flow.


  1. On your desktop, use a Chrome browser and install the Loola extension:
  2. Make sure to disable any popup blocker or AdBlocker.
  3. Click the Instagram icon in the Loola studio and follow the instructions

In certain cases, Instagram would ask you to confirm your identity. Confirm by opening Instagram on your mobile device and select "This Was Me":
(for better security, it is always better to have a recovery email and phone number set up in Instagram.) 

If connecting your Instagram account didn't succeed after clicking "This Was Me", please follow this guide: "This Was Me" isn't working

Two-Factor Authentication
If you have this turned on for your Instagram account, please make sure to select "Text Message" as your authentication message. Loola currently doesn't support authentication through an Authentication App.
