  2. Go to the 'Security' tab for your client (under manage) and untick 'Disable implicit OAuth'
  3. Take the following URL, subsitute the [client_id] with your own and the [redirect_uri] with one you specified during the registration process: https://api.instagram.com/oauth/authorize/?client_id=[client_id]&redirect_uri=[redirect_uri]&response_type=token
