A Chrome extension with super-powers
Inssist is a Chrome Extension that switches Instagram Website into mobile view as if you were using it on your Mobile Web Browser. It works in Chrome, Vivaldi, Opera, Microsoft Edge, Brave and other Chromium based browsers.
The plugin fixes a ton of bugs and facilitates posting Stories, Videos, IGTVs, sending DMs, monitoring Unfollowers and a host of other features not available out of the box on the Instagram Desktop Client.
Inssist works without a need to know your Instagram password, does not spy and does not transfer any data away from your PC.
Inssist is the only app that allows posting videos and stories to Instagram from Desktop without sharing Instagram passwords with a 3rd party app.
To post a photo, video, story or IGTV, install the plugin from Chrome WebStore and click the Plus button at the bottom of the Phone frame. Select a photo or video from your PC, enter optional caption, location, mentions and hit “Share”.
Please note some features such as GIFs, music and mentions on video stories are not yet supported by Instagram Web API and thus not available on Inssist.
Download any Media
Simply hit “Download” button on any post, video or image DM to get it saved. Make sure to @mention the author if you repost the media later to your profile.
Search Relevant Hashtags
As you create a new post, Inssist will automatically suggest you up to 30 relevant #hashtags to the ones you entered into the post caption. You can add suggested #hashtags to your post in one click.
If you’re a fan of Dark Mode, Inssist has one of the best, custom Dark Mode implementations for Instagram. If not, you can always switch back to Light.
The same goes for Wide Screen support. Browsing the photos in a small frame may get awkward on a wide PC screen, so there is an option to fix that.
Paid features are available on optional PRO version and cost $5 / month. You can subscribe to PRO and support development right from the Inssist plugin. Subscriptions are managed securely by FastSpring.
Inssist supports scheduling via Facebook Creator Studio and adds a bunch of improvements on top such as Bulk Scheduling, Posting Calendar, Time Slots, Drag & Drop support and much more.
You can schedule photo, video and even carousel (multi-photo) posts with Inssist. Once scheduled, the posts will be delivered by Facebook automatically. You do not need to keep the Inssist open for the posts to be delivered.
If you do not have scheduling setup for your Instagram account, Inssist has an RPA (Robotic Process Automation) module that will try to do that for you and save you a bit of time.
Scheduling also supports selecting Video Covers (thumbnails).
Insights and Analytics
Inssist Analytics scans your account and reports on Followers and Un-Followers. You can then engage with them to reduce churn or improve engagement.
Insights module can scan any public Instagram account for publicly available data on your behalf, and report on a number of things:
time of day and day of week the account posts.
hashtags they use sorted by engagement.
their posts, followers and followings.
the percentage of spam-bot accounts in their follower’s list.
All of Insights data is downloadable for further study.
DMs with Filters and Ghost Mode
Inssist supports DM chat filtering and search. Plugin shows the DM interface in a split-screen mode which allows browsing Instagram profiles and answering your DMs simultaneously.
Inssist DM remembers the text you pre-typed in your chats and restores it as you switch back and forth between the chats. With Inssist you can also peek at self-destructing photos.
Finally, a Ghost Mode allows reading someone’s DMs without notifying them.
Connect as many accounts as you like to Inssist and switch between them in one click. Yes, we counted.
Finally, an optional paid Zen mode makes your home feed look much less cluttered and stylish. Check it out!
Inssist is a client-side app and relies on Instagram Web client to work. Hence it does not need to collect any browser data, Instagram data or passwords from your machine. Inssist does not send any browsing data away from your PC.
What data it does collect?
In order to detect errors early, Inssist collects anonymized usage statistics with a help of Google Analytics and SentryJS web services.
If you choose to subscribe to PRO version, Inssist will also store your name, email and Instagram @username in a database in a secure fashion. Storing this data is necessary to keep a list of your payments. This information is automatically removed upon deleting your Inssist account from the app and is never shared with anyone. Inssist relies on secure networking protocols for data transfer.
If you feel paranoid, as we all do sometimes, you can confirm Inssist sends no personal data away by inspecting its’ popup or background scripts in Chrome.
How it manages billing?
Inssist delegates billing and transactions precessing to FastSpring and does not know or have access to your payment method details, cards or PayPal account.
We do not repackage, transmit away or sell any of your data. We do not show you ads. Inssist is monetised by providing optional paid features with its’ PRO subscription. With Inssist you are NOT a product.
I love it. It makes my work and life easier in uploading contents in my desktop. Brilliant solutions for Virtual Assistants and Social media Managers as well as Influencers, bloggers and creators.
Wonderful app. It lets me scheduled my post on Pro mode, which really help for small business to plan ahead their social media game. Keep it up guys!

This is honestly my favorite plug-in as a social media marketer. Couldn’t live without it!
Is there a way to enable notifications like when you get followed or unfollowed or have a new DM? Other than that, this extension is perfect!
