Like Counts Hidden

There is a problem with your API when I try to fetch like counts for a post that the Instagram user has setting “like_and_view_counts_disabled” as “true”. Your API returns a like count of “-1”. But the like count is still available by Instagram because 5 other API’s on RapidAPI are correctly returning the Like count for such posts. This is a big problem that will force me to switch to another API if you can’t fix it 😦

Hello! This is not a bug. Its a feature of WEB Instagram API. Like counts unstable in both mobile and web versions but more unstable in web. It’s not fixable.
If you need mobile API - check my other api - IGDATA
