Re: Instagram does not work after update

No you got to uncheck location from setting apps permission . So Instagram will not try to used location . Will not work if you disable location from setting . Instagram will still try to use location and freeze . This happen to me . The only way is to prevent the app from using location is uncheck it from the permission . Disable location from setting will disable the GPS but the apps can still try to use it by wifi or freeze if it cannot find it so you go to settings apps , select Instagram , permission uncheck location so the apps will not try to used it .

Re: Instagram does not work after update

it's always been unchecked, that isn't what's causing the problem for me

Re: Instagram does not work after update

Is there any update on this? 

I specifically got the phone for this reason and it's been longer than a month

Re: Instagram does not work after update

My fix go to settings apps select Instagram permission uncheck location . So Instagram app will not try to used location . If you disable location from setting this on your disable the GPS and  the app will try to use wifi and freeze . Does not matter if wifi is on or off . First to disable location from setting  and Instagram freezes because the permission was granted so I uncheck location from setting apps Instagram permission , uncheck location and leave storge check and this works for me .
