Get Your Instagram Access Token
In order to display your Instagram photos on your own website, you are required to provide an Instagram Access Token. You can do this by clicking the generator button below. After clicking, you'll be prompted by Instagram to authorize Pixel Union to access your Instagram photos, and you may need to enter your Instagram login credentials.
You'll be brought right back here and, if all went well, your Instagram Access Token will be ready for you. Copy and paste this access token into the correct field. Remember to keep your access token private and never paste it in a location where others might can access it.
Frequently Asked Questions
What's an Instagram Access Token?
The Instagram Access Token is a long string of characters unique to your account that grants other applications access to your Instagram feed.
Why do I need a token?
Without the token, your website will be unable to talk to the Instagram servers. The token provides a secure way for a website to ask Instagram's permission to access your profile and display its images.
Why should I trust you with my token?
Pixel Union is just the company that made this tool to generate your token. We do not have access to your Instagram tokens, nor do we intend to use them or your photos for any purpose.
Use this token in the appropriate field on your website or blog, and you should have a working Instagram widget.
If you're having problems using your token, get in contact with the service that set up the theme or template you're using for your website. If you're using a Pixel Union theme, our customer support team would be happy to help!
