    Hey guys,

    I've been using FL since a couple of years for like & unfollow, while I follow mostly manually (call me crazy lol).

    I've been temporary banned some times in the past especially for following, but this time I've been banned since 72h, and the ban is stil going; too much really (normally it lasts 24h, while before it was shorter).

    Besides that something weird has happened; on Monday I was asked to change the password by Instagram due to suspicious activity on my account; same happened on thursday.

    WTF is going on?
    I am thinking to stop using FollowLiker.

    Yes of course, but my settings are ok since 2 years :D
    Ok fact is, the same IG account is logged-in in 2 different countries (on the phone) and also on 2 different FollowLikers; in one pc i like, in the other one (in another country) I unfollow or vice versa. I thought this was dangerous but it never created a problem.
    I have another account like this and nothing happened so far.

    Everytime you use your bot it has to "Sign In" so thats why Instagram is bothering you with a password change. As far as follow spamming, you must make note of what follow schemes work. If you keep spamming IG will delete your account.

    Edit: Just take a look at the new algorithms after every update.

    Follow liker requires you to get proxies etc....and it will cause issues. But avoid logging in and out and make sure you post good content related to the people you are mnaually following. Otherwise they could even report you and if you get so many complaints in a certain amount of time...you can get banned as well. You could try to slow it down but not sure that is going to solve your problem. Use a bot that does all that proxy stuff for you and knows the algorithms. I use Influxsocial for all my clients (80)...still have issues from time to time if they do manual actions and not just letting the system do it...but overall freaking works.

    Thank you for the answer.
    I do keep a track of the scheme with which I follow/unfollow and lately it didn't create any problem. Normally I follow about 400-500 manually, then clean all and follow again the same amount. The day when I was blocked (basically 1 week ago) I just finished to follow about 400 accounts in the morning and everything was ok. Then in the afternoon I got the password change message (FL was liking in the meantime), and in the evening I got blocked at the 1st follow.

    What are you referring to with "Just take a look at the new algorithms after every update"?

    Thanks!

    As far as I know proxies are not needed if you use up to 3 accounts; did that change?
    as for the rest, the other person which is handling the account (from another country) logs in and off from this one about 2 times per day; could that influence it? It's weird as I do the same with the other account we're handling.
    It has been almost 1 year since I follow people not related to my content, so I don't know why that should happen now.
    I was not aware of Influxsocial but I'd prefer to keep going with FL. What's the cost of influx?

    Thanks!

    For sure this is why you are having issues. If you are logging in and out all the time you will have problems like this. The reason I went with Influx over Follow Like is this:

    - Reporting - Analytics system which allows you to see how each parameter is benefiting to the account (percentage of follow backs, from where the audience coming from)
    - Gender targeting
    - Set your following limit to certain number and the platform will automatically switch between following/unfollowing
    - Import your whitelist with one click
    - The following will be always based on most engagement users from popular accounts
    - Location targeting works much more efficient than folllowliker and you can choose locations quickly
    - No need to buy proxies

    Cost is 9.95 up to 39.95 depending on how fast you want to go and different features. But when I switched my accounts (80 of them) off Follow Liker my accounts more than doubled what they were growing on a monthly basis. Overall a better GUI so you know whats going on. Also I never have to log in and out of an account. :)

    There are new updates for Instagram every so often. Once they update they sometimes have new limits for following or unfollowing!

    Yes I've noticed that...in fact in the past I could like and follow much more users. What I mean is that we cannot simply "take a lok at the new algorithms", but we have to find out ourselves :)

    Do you by chance have any idea about what I've written above? (password reset for the 3rd time without anything running and blocked since 1 week for following).

    Thanks!

    There a change going on i recon but there no notice to say there changing not fair.

    When they change anythink everybody get effected

    Dont forget instagram aginst bots and apps unless you use there api and tos even then you can get ban .

    Also remeber one account per person policy

    Every single update they do hopefully there end , destroy a bot or app (( just the way it is))

    The post for easy cash with ogads i think must went viral(must really peed off Insta))
