And then select the Instagram line.

If you have already connected other messengers, tap the Settings icon in the upper right corner

And tap the Plus button in the Instagram line.

In the appeared window you can review all the conditions necessary for connecting the Instagram account, and tap Continue.
If you’ve already logged in to your Facebook account on your device, the system will automatically suggest you continue under this account. If the account is correct, tap Continue. If not, select another one by tapping the Edit Settings button.

❗️ It’s important that this is the exact account under which the Facebook Page operates (with the Instagram account linked). 

If your device isn’t logged in, then you’ll be suggested to enter your username and password. After you do that, just tap Log in.

In the appeared window you need to tap the Continue button. By that you agree to give access to your Facebook Profile data.

Then tap Continue again. By that you give permission to manage your Facebook Page.

On the next screen, select the Facebook Page to which the Instagram account is linked, and tap Select Page.

Ready! You have connected Instagram now.
