    Just saw this for the first time on Instagram:

    Figured I'd post here about it and warn you guys. You have to make your accounts look 100% real if you want it to work out.

    This probably only happens when you just register and put a link the bio right away, maybe?

    Possible. No idea though. Maybe when Instagram flags/gets suspicious of your account they start showing this to people and if enough people report it -- instaban. That's what I'd do if I were them.

    Instagram probably catches words like "honey" and "look me now" and flags them.

    I've seen this for months now. Surprised that you guys just noticed it. I've seen it on accounts that already had a following and followers, and had posted images so I doubt its only for new accounts.

    I also saw it for accounts that promote coins and stuff for gaming related stuff and for Instagram followers so I doubt it's because Instagram "catches words like "honey""

    My hypothesis is that that is the last chance before Instagram either bans an account they suspect to be spam or gives it another chance hence the "not spam" option.

    same I mentioned it in a thread a few months ago and they show this message to others accounts that are dar less spammy than this one.
    hell ive seen it on a account that didnt look spammy at all, maybe using a bot but thats it.

    You don't suppose Instagram also has words like "coins" flagged in new accounts? These are pretty common niches.

    But these kind of things can usually be caused by many different things - where the account was created, who the account is following, the link in the bio, etc.

    Everyone who is into IG marketing and using follow/unfollow and has not noticed this yet is a joke. This is already a month old news, if not even older...

    That depends on account authority and trust-score, as everything on Instagram.

    You have to understand that Instagram is just as scared that they might ban someone's legit personal account as we are that they will ban our spam accounts so I highly doubt they flag words likes "honey" or "coins"
