    I've run 8-10 accounts in FL. Some of them following and others unfollowing. Everything was good till this night, when all my account that was unfollowing (5 accounts) was temporarily blocked.
    Elder accounts have next settings (9-12 months old):
    Unfollow limit: 40-50
    Daily Unfollow limit: 1400-1500
    Delay unfollow: 20-30 sec

    Newer accounts (2-4 months old):
    Unfollow limit: 35-45
    Daily Unfollow limit: 700-1000
    Delay unfollow: 30-50 sec

    Use VPN when run FL.

    So my question is: the problem is that I need to run with lower settings? Or need use proxy?

    It was the IG ban hammer. Lots of accounts got banned for unfollowing. You need to do it slower now.

    There are many many posts about being blocked on instagram and some people are blocked for an hour, some are blocked for 5-6 weeks.. it depends on what you did exactly. To prevent you should limit your activity.

    i assume you used one VPN ip for all the accs, that's a not too good idea to say the least, you shouldn't run more than 2-3 accs on the same ip, now thanks to that all of your accs are affected instead of just 2 or 3

    VPN or proxy doesn't matter though, but of course it's more practical to run FL with proxies, however it doesn't really matter for those accs anymore, they're already linked, plus if you change the ip now, you may be asked to do a password reset

    it's just a temp block, obviously you need to lower your limits until you don't get it anymore

    typically yes, but it seems instagram just did a sweep of accounts and even some of those weren't safe. At this point it is hard to say what the reasoning could be.

    At this point I don't know the correct number because I was already unfollowing the previous day so I don't know at what time did the ban started to count.

    I've got two accounts, first is 1 year old and second is around 4 months old. They both unfollowed around 320 users yesterday. The older one is fine, but the second was temp blocked. So I guess the setting depends on the account age as usually.

    If you get temp blocked just stop follow liker for some time, then scale it down and restart

    Thanks for yours replies.
    I waited two days and today I've restart main account and put 500 unfollows. For now works well. Later will try restart another accounts. Maybe I had to much unfollows per IP, total was around 3500.

    Main account has delays 20-30 sec.
    Others have 25-30, 35-45, 40-50.
    Fo las two days if I was running only one account for unfollowing - it was ok. When I was running two even with low setting, after some time got temp. block.
