    Instagram made some very big changes to authentication process. About 70% of our users are affected by them.

    Before the changes the process was quite simple:

    Sometimes Instagram decided that login from SNAP is “unusual” and asked for confirmation. You just had to open Instagram on your phone and tap “This was me” button on “We have detected an unusual login attempt” screen.

    The process become much more complicated now. Instagram is treating different accounts differently. Here is our analysis based on our user data:

    1. About 30% of accounts are not affected by the change at all. They work as they worked before.
    2. About 45% of accounts require to enter the code from email or SMS. SNAP supports this type of authentication starting from versions: SNAP Plugin 4.1.1 and SNAP API 4.0.37.

    Sometimes Instagram decides that login from SNAP is “unusual” and asks for confirmation. Until yesterday, you just had to open Instagram on your phone and tap “This was me” button on “We have detected an unusual login attempt” screen. Yesterday this stopped working. Instagram is still asking you to confirm the login, but confirmation has no effect on the actual login anymore. You are still going to be told that “checkpoint_required” next time you try to use SNAP.

    So we had to switch to a different way of Instagram account confirmation. Please update your plugin to the version 4.1.1. When you click “Send test post to Instagram” and Instagram decide that your login is “unusual”, you will be asked to enter the code. Please check your Instagram email or phone message for the code and enter it. SNAP will be working fine with Instagram after that.
