We suggest making sure that Inssist FREE works for you before buying a PRO license.

This typically happens because of the following:

1. You’re not signed into Chrome. To sign in, find a ‘Person’ or ‘Name’ button in the top right corner of the Chrome window. Click on it and make sure to create an account and sign in.

2. You’re not in the country supported by Google Payments system. Navigate to the the list of supported countries to check what countries are supported.

3. Your bank account and Google Payments do not like each other. Try to add a different payment method on the Google Payments Website or follow instructions listed here.

Inssist needs to be able to make calls to Instagram.com, so please make sure you can actually browse the social network website, posts and tag pages while your VPN is on.
