Another thing that you can do to make sure to fix it is when you uninstall and install the app again, before you log in to your account, log in in another account that you have in hand and maybe browse a little bit from it for a few hours and then log in to your account.
Something else that can happen is Instagram to be down. How do you find out that Instagram is down? It happened in early 2019 for a couple of hours and the whole world freaked out.
There is a website Down.com where you can type Instagram.com and see if it is down.
Moreover, login with Facebook is a good idea. When you go on Instagram, you have this “ Sign in with Facebook” option. You already have this on multiple games, apps, other platforms and you obviously have it on Instagram because Instagram is owned by Facebook since 2015.
If you can log in from a computer but not from a phone there is a fix for that too.
Just go on to Instagram.com and you have a button “ Edit profile” and there is an option “
“Temporarily disable my account” click that and then after a day or so reinstate.
If all of our methods for fixing the Instagram login error don’t work. Maybe it is on your phone and you can try to access your account from other IP. Not from the same Wi-Fi or mobile network. If that helps just reset your phone, back it up.
