Question: Instagram won't connect to Facebook

I can't seem to connect my Instagram to my Facebook. When I go to share my Instagram on Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, etc. it works fine and connects. However, when I click on Facebook I get the error message: "Facebook Login Failed - Make sure you've allowed Instagram to use Facebook in iOS Settings > Privacy > Facebook." I went there and Instagram wasn't even listed. I uninstalled both apps, reset my iPad, removed Instagram from my Facebook, reinstalled both apps, tried to connect with Facebook again yet it keeps showing the same error message. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi, iOS 6.1.1

Answer:

I figured it out. What you need to do is uninstall instagram. Install it again. When you open the app, tap on register. Then click use Facebook info. Allow Facebook to use instagram. Then go back and sign in with your instagram username. This should work since I had the same problem! Hope this helps!!

This tends to sort it all out, well for the IPhone anyway:-


Step 1:

Go to Settings > Facebook > (Your Name) > Delete Account & delete your account.

Step 2:

With your account detached from your iPhone. Open Instagram > Setting > Share Settings > Connect to Facebook. Follow the normal steps to "Allow Instagram to Post on your behalf."

Step 3:

Go back to your iPhone's Settings & recconect your Facebook Account to your phone.

Tada!

WoW Wow! THANK YOU!!



I was getting "Make sure you've allowed Instagram to use Facebook in iOS Settings > Privacy > Facebook." as an error message for over a week! I wrote to facebook support but to no avail :-( and no answer! I tried deleting and reinstalling both applications, and then signing into instagram using my facebook info ( register in instagram using facebook account) but that didn't work either.


I tried EVERYTHING in this forum and this is the ONLY one that worked!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!

I think the underlying issue has to do with the e-mail addresses, my Instagram e-mail was not in my facebook account (which at some point annoyingly defaulted to @facebook.com) added my Instagram e-mail address to facebook (and made it facebook's priamry e-mail).


Pooly7's workaround probably works for similar reasons, at the "Register" stage you're not signed in to Instagram so there's no e-mail address conflict with your facebook account.
