The remaining Instagram Legacy API permission ("Basic Permission")
was disabled on June 29, 2020. As of June 29, third-party apps no
longer have access to the Legacy API. To avoid disruption of service
to your app and business, developers previously using the Legacy API
should instead rely on
Instagram Basic Display API
Instagram Graph API
Please request approval for required permissions through the
Legacy API user identifier available on Basic Display API until September 30, 2020
To assist with migration, we have temporarily made the unique user identifier from the Legacy API - ig_id - available on Basic Display API. However, the ig_id field will be deprecated on Basic Display API on September 30, 2020, so please ensure you are using other fields (e.g. the Facebook "id" field) or your own unique identifier for your users. See our developer documentation here to learn more.
User Token Generator
If you're only using the Legacy API to generate tokens in order to display your Instagram Feed on a personal website, you can use the Instagram Basic Display API's User Token Generator to continue generating tokens. The User Token Generator does not require App Review, but it will only work for your owned Instagram accounts (i.e. accounts for which you know the login credentials). Refer to the developer documentation here to learn more. If you're using the Legacy API to display multiple accounts on your website, then you must apply for permissions to Instagram Basic Display API via App Review. If you're using the Legacy API for any other use case, you must apply for permissions on the Instagram Graph API platform via App Review.
