    Just see if device registered push notifications. If it didn't - a bot.
    Also bots don't send analytics data and never use /api/v1/qe/expose/.

    So if you code an ideal bot, your have to imitate all three.

    What you say is that your accounts work. For now.

    How would you know if a bot registered push notifications?

    Interesting concept. You're saying that for a bot to trick IG it would have to receive and then interact with it's notifications?

    Yes, but first you will have to register with an APN for notifications. Apple, for example, requires a valid device certificate for this, which you can't generate. The only possibility I currently see is to buy used old iPhones and get their certificates to be able to generate Premium accounts that look exactly as a physical device.

    Yes , you are correct :) we do this on igerslike ! Not only sync but other important requests that most of the developers miss and can be very important if you are running legit accounts.

    Do you have solutions for registering for Apple / Android notifications? Could you share or point me where I could read about it?

    Hello @longdouble

    Actually it's pain in the a$$ to fake the whole analytics/tracking packets etc.
    I'm wondering if you find yet someone providing that IG bot who simulate exactly the android/apple application.
