    Recently got hit with my first "action blocked" error on instagram. How many hours/days until this temp ban is lifted?

    They usually tell you when it'll past. But that's a signal that you doing something wrong.

    I have been managing accs for just over 2 years now. They were aged accs with safe settings, I believe it was due to Instagrams recent outages.

    However, it did not give my ANY sort of time until ban would be lifted. It was very vague and just said “please try again later”.

    First you get 24 hours, then if you don't take it easy and get another block, the ban period is longer. Make sure you don't keep hammering away at the ISG server once a ban is detected, your bot should locally block your account so you do not perform any actions during your ban period

    It usually is for 24 hours. I recently got many temp blocks for likes and follows on one of my accounts like every 2-3 days which is a lot in my opinion. I have lowered my bot settings but i don't see any difference. So i don't know what is wrong with ig these days. If you keep getting blocks stop botting completely for some time, it kinda worked for me.

    I was temporarily blocked from some action like 20 times and it was always for 24 hours. They never prolong it to me.

    Wait 24 hours and if you for example got a like block try to like one pic, if you can't, wait for another 24 hours and try again. Sometimes they say for how much time they have blocked you, sometimes they don't. If they didn't say, just wait and try to like or whatever to check how it goes.

    It was a comment block, not a "like" block.

    So I should try to comment every 24hrs or so to see if they post?
