    I've logged in one of those spammy app on the AppStore and soemtimes, after login, they autolikes posts (of others) or autocomment...you know.

    I revoked their permission on the IG settings page and also changed the password, is it ok? Or the token that they have grabbed still works?

    Thanks guys!

    once you revoke access it should be fine. you can check from time to time in "posts you've liked" section if there is anything new that you see.

    After revoking access their access on the IG settings page,go ahead and make the profile private for an hour or two and then make it Public again.
    That should help.

    Even if you revoked access they can still use your account

    Not much you can do it may work revoking access for some apps, but I know there are guys that can still do it after you revoked them.
