In some cases, you will need to disconnect and reconnect your Facebook account from Instagram. Like after changing the Facebook account password, Instagram sometimes doesnt log you out from your Facebook account and will keep sharing posts. This will lead to failure in posting.

Heres how you can do the same.

  1. Open theInstagramapp and go to theProfiletab.
