From October 8th, 2020, Apphi no longer supports connecting Instagram personal profiles to publish your posts. This change was necessitated by policy changes from Facebook as they focus their efforts on supporting professional accounts.
Facebook requires you to have an Instagram Business Account connected to a Facebook Page to enable the autopost function in Apphi.
We know it can be confusing, basically, there are two requirements:
It's Instagram Business Account
This IG Business Account is connected to a Facebook Page
To enable the autopost functions, we recommend converting your IG personal account to an IG business account. There’s no cost associated with making this switch and it only takes a few minutes.
