March 30, 2020 Update: We understand these are challenging times for our developer community, so we are postponing disabling the Instagram Legacy API Platform by 90 days to June 29, 2020. Remaining endpoints on the Legacy API will no longer be available after this date and your app’s users may lose functionality. We urge you to migrate to the Instagram Basic Display API without delay so that Instagram users of your app have time to transition as well. Please see this blog post for tips on getting through our App Review process.
Long-Lived Access Tokens
When we launched Instagram Basic Display API, Instagram User Access Tokens were only short-lived and valid for just one hour. Access tokens will still be short-lived by default, but you now have the option to exchange them for long-lived tokens that are valid for 60 days. To learn more about long-lived tokens, please check the developer documentation guide here.
