How It Works

Our website uses a combination of technologies to deliver the Instagram experience from the comfort of your browser. This works by using our Chrome Extension and Desktop API to provide you with the full-fat Insta-experience.

To start using DesktopInsta do the following:

  • If you haven’t already, install the latest version of Chrome Browser.
  • Visit our Download page and download our Desktop API and any other required components.
  • Install our Desktop API by running the installer. Once it has finished it will be running and ready to use. (Mac OS X users please see below)
  • Download and install our Chrome Extension.
  • Done! You can now log in and use DesktopInsta!

Mac OS X Users

Please use the following guide to ensure that the Desktop API is running when you first start your Mac.
