Default Instagram Cookie Login Failing With Specific Account

After logging in, I use Flag Cookies to copy the cookie data, but when I try to use it in JD, it says the cookie data is invalid. I have 2 other accounts which are newer, but those are giving no issues (at the moment).

The account which is not working is my oldest account, iirc, I created it back in 2012. No idea if account age has anything to do with it, or something wrong on Instagram's end, or if something is wrong on JD's end.

Login with exported cookies isn't working - what to do
Maybe try to use incognito/private mode of browser, login at your account and do a *fresh* export of cookies

In case that doesn't work, please provide a debug log
Enable Settings->Advanced Settings->Log.debugmodeenabled and restart JDownloader, remove/try to add the account and then create a log, see https://support.jdownloader.org/Know...d-session-logs and post shown logID here

It worked in incognito. What is the reason a specific account would not work? Do you need to see a debug log to know that?

@goldensun87: thanks for the feedback. Yes, we need a debug log in order to see why it failed.
maybe the old account had different cookies set and maybe sort oft legacy login while a fresh login produces different set of cookies, I don't know

If you want you can provide debug logs so we can check if. best would be maybe one debug log with the non working cookies and another debug log with the working cookies (same account) so we can try to detect the difference and why it failed

This should be with the non-working cookies.

01.06.22 05.54.59 <--> 01.06.22 06.35.04 jdlog://1820035302851/

On a regular tab, there were 10 cookies.

This time, it did not work in incognito mode either. So, this log contains a successful cookie login with a different account.

01.06.22 05.54.59 <--> 01.06.22 06.47.23 jdlog://2820035302851/

Thanks. I will also note, that Insta softlocked one of my accounts for bot activity, even though I wiped the cookies after 500-1000+ image downloads.

Wiping and creating new cookies regularly was working to evade getting flagged, but I am wondering if that may no longer be effective. Is there anything that can be done with JD, to work around this new development?

You should not have to wipe your cookies. And you should use *extra* accounts for this purpose (crawling/downloading) to prevent your main account getting blocked/locked

Well, if I had the luxury of downloading only a few pics at a time, you would be right. Unfortunately, I regularly explore and find new accounts, and more often than not, the account already has hundreds or 1000+ to 2000+ posts. Factor in multiposts, and the total number of images can go into 3000+.

Videos, I found, have very little chance of setting off the anti-bot scanners, because larger videos means longer intervals between each download. This is why I do videos before images. For large batches of images, first I tried downloading small hundreds at a time. Eventually got flagged. So, I tried the same thing, but added in wiping the cookies. This prevented getting flagged. I realized that the long intervals did not help, because the total amount of bot activity was being accumulated in the aged cookies.

That method was working if I did a big batch and took a break for some time. Unfortunately, I come across multiple accounts with hundreds of posts. I tried wiping and using fresh cookies in quick succession, but this probably ended up being considered suspicious activity. So, if I have to scrape a profile with 1500 to 2000+ images, I started splitting the total number of downloads across my 3 accounts.

This method has been effective, with occasional slip-ups if I got too carried away. Now, with these new site changes being rolled out, I cannot yet tell the full extent of the changes. The last batch I did had 1460 images. I had to use a single account to download them all, because 1 of my 3 accounts could not cookie login, and the another is blocked by the profile I was downloading from. I split the total number of downloads between two different cookie logins, with a short wait in between, but this time I got flagged.

Could be Insta's system is temporarily on higher alert during the new rollouts. Also, I think Insta is using anti-bot softlock as a cover for collecting birthday submissions from all accounts. I believe this operation is part of their new rollout.

@goldensun87
I'm sorry but there is little we can do against that.
As explained somewhere in our forums (e.g. here), you can increase the "request limit" to try to avoid the blocks.

Also, you could try if other software like e.g. "Insta loader" (search for it on github) has implemented better mechanics to avoid blocks.

The latest update seems to have solved the issue. If there is any further issue shortly, I'll post in this thread. If there is an issue some time in the future, I'll post a new thread.

@goldensun87: Thanks for your feedback. In case the issue is with cookie login failing, you can post here again. For other issues, just open a new thread Of course you're free to open a new thread for login issues as well
