Instagram Makes Long-Lived Access Tokens Available for the Instagram Basic Display API

One hour is nice, but 60 days is better. Instagram said Tuesday that long-lived access tokens are now available for the Instagram Basic Display API (application-programming interface). Software engineer Muyuan Liu said in a blog post that when the Instagram Basic Display API debuted last October, user access tokens were only valid for one hour, but developers can now exchange them for long-lived access tokens that are valid for 60 days.
