    Hi all,

    For some bizarre reason I can turn on ovation services for most of my apps but not Instagram. I have tried the privacy setting where other app privacy settings are stored but Instagram is not listed as an option. Any idea on how to turn I. The privacy settings? I have tried uninstalling Instagram and reinstalling but sill no luck. I am running ios7

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't think there is location services for Instagram. What exactly are you trying to do?

    Edit: that's weird I don't have that in my settings

    Qbnkelt is correct. You may also be prompted within the app.

    Beyond Fire, you'll need location services for checking into locations. It's the gray text above a picture, where users can show where they are via a pin on a map.

    hmmm thats where I thought it would be located but it's missing from the list. Must be some type of glitch. I already uninstalled and reinstalled the app. What should I try next?

    That's odd. Have you rebooted your device? What OS are you on?

    I've seen that with Facebook. It will not be on the list in location services. But when I go to share my location (Restaurant) in the Facebook app, it asks to turn it on. Then it is on the list. I keep that turned off most of the time for Facebook. It guzzles too much battery.

    I am using iOS 7.1.2 . I have rebooted my device. This is so bizarre.

    That is strange. I'm at a loss. I'm sorry.

    In any case you can choose in app. But that is strange.

    And Beyond Fire hasn't got it either.

    Is it device or carrier specific? Wouldn't think so.

    Go to Instagram and do something that requires location services. Maybe it will ask to turn it on. That's how it was with Facebook. Facebook owns Instagram, so...

    This worked for me. I took a pic and turned on 'photo map' and it asked me for location services.

    Thanks all, your advice worked. Such a weird occurrence. I would have never have thought to do that.
