    Anyone else getting this? Suddenly, after using my account (created via Instance) with Instagram, today I am told via the client that my ;login has changed and to enter the new one. When using the website, it tells me my account is inactive.

    Very weird. Is it just me?

    Thanks...

    Widespread actually. If you search "Instagram disabled" in Twitter, you'll see lots of reports.

    Ah, thanks. Twitter was the one place I DIDN'T try, of course. Duh.

    This appears to have happened to me as well... Any way to regain access?

    This is probably Instagram responding to the unofficial clients. Disable their accounts, watch the one star reviews roll in, watch people flock to iPhone or Android. It's so epic a plan it's foolproof.

    Checked mine. I signed up for an account through Instance and so far so good. All is working. Time will tell if they catch up to me.

    if Instagram actually went through the trouble of detecting which accounts were created through unofficial clients then that is a little too Orwellian and Google ish to me....I think I'll pass and stick to Twitter.

    In the last 24 hours or so I have sent a billion Tweets and FB Messages to Instagram and received absolutely no response. Zero. I can't find any other channels. I'd at least like to know WHY they nuked us before I go and create another account.

    I've been having this problem too! Except I just got the account and 20 mins later I got logged out and haven't been able to get back in with the same login since... I even tried to re-register and can't do that on instance. I have the paid app too

    I'd really like to confirm that this is the case, my teen dd had her instagram account deleted yesterday and new account deleted today - which is practically like sending her back to medieval times :P - she is very much wanting to be off windows phone at this point. Unfortunately we are out of the return time period, so she would have to take drastic steps to get a different phone, and we want to be sure what is happening and why.

    I guess Instagram finally decided to shut off their API to 3rd party clients.

    They can't cut the API off, because it is the official API used by the official clients. but I'm betting if you look at their official clients they probably released a very minor update recently that has the official clients passing a watermark or marker of some type to the API to verify they are legit official clients. Then all Instagram would have to do is delete any account that shows an upload not coming with that watermark or marker included in the upload.

    This is why I never pay for unofficial clients because the IP holder will ALWAYS **** with them. Pandora did it, Twitter did it, and now Instagram is doing it.

    doubt that. The CEO of instagram hates Microsoft and this monkey business is probably under his direction.

    My account is suddenly inactive. I have been using Instance and Intragraph for a while without issues. Not sure if it is worth creating another account, if they are so anti Windows Phone.

    Why is that, I wonder? FB owns Instagram; FB and MSFT are partners (see Bing search in FB, also MS is a big stockholder in FB). Why is the Instagram scenario with WP so bleak?
