Instagram login problem


I get the following message on the simulator when I put in my Instagram username and password: {"code": 403, "error_type": "OathForbiddenException", "error_message": "Implicit authentication is disabled"}

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

You can enable Implicit authentication via instagram.com/developer. Go to Manage Clients, choose your client, click edit. On the Security tab uncheck Disable Implicit OAuth
