I'm not sure if anyone will be able to help me with this, or tell me where I can get help, but I'm hoping....!

I have been having a problem with my Instagram accounts, and have just managed to sort them out on my laptop.

But on the Instagram app I can only reach one - the one I'don't want to use!!

On my main one, I get the following message, which appears so briefly that it took me ages to write it down:

AsyncSocket#Exception:connect failed (immediately) type=Socket not open, errno=65(no route to host)

That is complete gobbledegook to me, so I was really hoping that someone might be able to tell me what is going on there, and point me in the right direction to sort it out!!

Very many thanks

Chrissie

I was just about to recommend that you contact Tony about this - as I see him as the Instagram Guru!!
But I see he already has come to the rescue!!
Hope this resolved the problem

Hi Chrissie,

Uninstall the Instagram App then log into the one that you do want to use my Friend.

Also make sure that you have verified your email and phone number associated with your account that you want to use.

Let me know that the above helps you Chrissie,

Tony

Hi Tony
I deleted the app - I had to do twice and change my password on my laptop before I could get the account I wanted.

Weirdly, for some unknown reason Instagram have swapped over my username, website and email and I just can't change that, nor can I any longer access my other account - not sure what I can do about that!!!

Also, it had erased my profile description, but I can fix that!

I am a bit wary out of logging out of my main one on my laptop and trying to access the other one so that I could change things, in case I then can't access the one I want!

I believe that you said we could have put five accounts, so I don't see why I am having a problem!

Thank you so much for your help with this, do you have any more ideas of how I could fix the other problems?

Thanks again

Chrissie :)

Chrissie,

while Instagram is an amazing platform, it is very picky and even more so now that Facebook got into trouble as Facebook owns Instagram.

Some of my accounts have also been lost and maybe forever, I am also just staying logged into my main account on my phone.

On my laptop I am able to open a completely different Google Chrome Browser and log into some other IG accounts in order to Like and/or Comment but I no longer post with those ones.

It is crazy for sure!

I wish that I had a better answer Chrissie, talk with you soon my Friend.

Tony

Thank you so much Tony.

Logging in on a different browser sounds like a plan too :)

I don't know what to say about Instagram. I haven't explored it yet although very popular with the youth of today.
