I used Instance (v1, not the v2 beta) and found that my hashtags were not searchable. When 6tag was getting ready to come out, I uninstalled Instance. When I installed 6tag, my first post was hashtag searchable. I've since used 6tag, Instance v2 beta, and InPic and not had any hashtag issues.
So... maybe the uninstall of Instance v1 somehow triggered the logout with Instagram, or maybe it was just the week or so between the Instance uninstall and the 6tag install. You might want to try uninstalling whatever app you're using, waiting a couple of days, then installing one of the new apps with the security fix and do a login/logout on that app. Hopefully, when you log back in, Instagram will recognize your account is all good.

I took InstanceV2 beta for a spin between a period with 6tag for my own evaluation. I ended up sticking with 6tag and have since uninstalled the instance beta and original however i now have no hashtag support again.... so freaking annoying. I had searchable hashtags for a brief period ( a few days) and the problem has returned. my last use of Instance would have been just 5/6 days ago so im currently left seeing if i ever get searchable tags back.

I heard revoking access to third party apps will solve the problem.. not quite sure but will give it a try.. Revoke access to other third party apps from here https://instagram.com/accounts/manage_access
use your desktop for opening the website..

The problem is with third-party apps that use the API in an 'undocumented' way - Instance, Inpic, 6tag. These apps do not show up on the revoke access page, so you need to make sure you completely log out of the app for the required period (rumoured to be 7 days).
However, Instance doesn't sign you out properly at the moment (Inpic and 6tag do). Instance v2 should address this, but until then you're stuck if you used instance recently. Not sure what's holding up the release of v2 as the beta has been out for a while now and there don't appear to be any significant bugs.

If so that seems odd, as even before I was aware of the 'revoke access' procedure, my hashtags did appear to work, briefly, during a period where I was not using Instance as my preferred client. I believe when Instance V2 beta was launched and i tried that out, I flagged my account again un-knowingly..

The trouble is that no one has been able to clearly detail how to successfully un-flag an account or if the 7 day period is indeed correct; at least not that I found.

The same thing happened to me last night. I have not been using instance, inpic, or any other app, just 6tag. Before i switched to 6tag from instance, i unistalled instance, revoked access from all the apps, and just switched to 6tag. I waited a couple of days to upload a pic, and when I did my hash tags came back. But last night i uploaded a couple of pictures and for both of them the hashtags were blocked again. I did not change or install any other app so I have no idea what caused it.

I see, that makes sense. Is it your understanding that the V2 Beta didn't have that added code to enforce this 'correct' logging out procedure? Obviously the V2 final launch cant be too far off but, to have all of his V1 users crippled by this must be a bit embarrassing for him-even though it was a move on Instagram's part. I must be one of many having this problem surely. Regardless, I hope you are correct!
Ps out of interest Gorki247, are you currently experiencing a similar issue or have you had this problem? Im glad you are well informed on the issue!

The v2 beta does have the necessary code, so should be OK - at least according to the developer. Problem is that it's seen as a different app so won't solve the issue we're having with v1. We'll have to wait until the official v2 release for that (Yes, I'm experiencing the same issue - posts don't appear in hashtag searches).
