venus-tutorial- how to generate an Instagram Access Token

It’s really easy to generate your own Instagram token in a safe and secure manner.  In this post, we’ll show you how to generate your Instagram token in the most easy way, please follow our tutorials step by step:

Step 1:

Please go to https://www.instagram.com/developer/clients/manage/. Then, login to your account >>  click on Manage Clients >> Register a New Client

step1_create_client

Step 2:

Next, click on button “Register a New Client

step2_register_client_id

>> Then edit the client ID

step2_edit_client_id

We will get client id information as this:

step2_app_information

Fill out the required fields for registering a new client id making sure to set the OAuth redirect_uri field to “http://localhost” (without quotes).
The reason you should use localhost is for security. In computer networking localhost is the web address of the computer you are using. So when Instagram redirects to your redirect_uri, all of your sensitive information is passed from Instagram’s servers directly to your computer. See wikipedia.org/wiki/Localhost for more details.
Also, be sure to uncheck the “Disable implicit OAuth” box or else this method will not work.
Once all of the fields are filled out click submit.

Step 3:

>> Paste the following url into your web browser.

https://api.instagram.com/oauth/authorize?client_id=[CLIENT_ID_HERE]&redirect_uri=http://yourdomain.com&scope=basic+public_content&response_type=token

and add the client id you generated to the url replacing “[CLIENT_ID_HERE]” (without quotes).

Hit enter, and you will connect to Instagram’s servers. Instagram will ask you whether you want to grant the client you registered in Step 2 access to your account

step3_authrize_client_id

Once your client has been granted access to your account, Instagram will redirect your browser to your localhost and your newly generated access token will be appended to the url after yourdomain.com/#access_token=

step3_get_auth_token

Treat your Instagram access token like you would your password. Do not share your access token with anyone.
