Why do I need to enable Instagram publishing with my mobile device?

To post any media to Instagram user/personal account.
To post IG Stories.
You will be receiving push notification reminder on your mobile device at the schedule publishing time.
GIF also require Push Notification process. GIF is really not supported by Instagram even when you do it natively in Instagram app. Once you try to post GIF using eclincher, it will be posted as a Static image. It would be best to just convert the GIF image to video.

If you're posting using a user/personal profile, you will have to enable publishing to Instagram in your eclincher mobile before you can publish the post. This is because Instagram's Publishing works this way:
