Instagram Popup Login

Log into Instagram via a Pop-Up window with Javascript. After authentication you receive the acccess token, that can be used to make API endpoint calls.

You can view a demo here.


  1. Download index.php and instagram_auth.php.
  2. Get a Client ID.
  3. Keep "Disable implicit OAuth" and "Enforce signed header" disabled.
  4. Copy Client ID and OAuth redirect_uri.
  5. Paste both values in the authenticateInstagram() function:
    'your_client_id', //instagram client ID
    'your_redirect_uri', //instagram redirect URI
    login_callback //optional - a callback function
