    Hey,

    I've been using FollowLiker for over a year and never been banned, today one of my smaller accounts with 3k was banned. Any else banned? Wondering if there was a ban wave that went through or something.

    IG is launching ads so it's getting more difficult to bot

    The reason why your account may be deleted is due to but not limited to any of the following reasons:

    1. If the account is new and you start following, unfollowing, commenting ... aggressively.

    Solution: Take things easy and slow, start with very low daily limit and high intervals/delays.

    2. If you use a blacklisted proxy/IP address to create accounts, instagram may delete any account created with it.

    Solution: Use fresh proxy/IP that has not been abused.

    3. If you create multiple accounts on the same phone, instagram will store the phone ID. Instagram will start deleting newly created accounts on that phone when you have successfully created certain number of accounts earlier.

    Solution: Use another phone to create your new accounts.

    4. If you create multiple accounts with the same proxy/IP, instagram will store the proxy/IP address. Instagram will start deleting newly created accounts on that proxy/IP when you have successfully created certain number of accounts earlier.

    Solution: Use another proxy/IP to create your new accounts.

    5. If you create an account on blacklisted apps or software such as BlueStack, Instagram will delete the account.

    Solution: Use a phone to create your account or you can buy account.

    6. If you add a blacklisted link/URL to your account's profile, Instagram may delete the account. They usually visit the link/URL to see if the webpage contains prohibited, illegal or banned content. Also, if you use the same link/URL on the profile of multiple accounts of yours, instagram may delete the newer accounts.

    Solution: Avoid linking your account to websites with prohibited, illegal or banned content. Also, don't use the same link/URL across multiple profiles.

    7. If your account is reported/flagged by other instagram users, Instagram may delete the account if the account is reported/flagged by multiple users.

    Solution: Avoid using offensive content on your profile which may encourage other instagram users to report/flag your account.

    8. Instagram is going commercial and they are trying to introduce their own advertising platform. Therefore, they are pruning their user base. The pruning system sometimes generate a false report that may make instagram delete accounts indiscriminately.

    Solution: If your account is deleted, you should contact instagram to reactivate the account.


    In addition, please note the following:

    - The Instagram app being used on the phone bypasses proxies by default, although it can be forced. Therefore, using proxy on the phone does not necessarily mean that the Instagram app is using it.
    - The account may not be deleted immediately you create it. The account will likely be deleted when you attempt to use it.

    Nothing is wrong with me, I know it gets asked every day but I've been botting for years on Instagram, much more aggressively then I was doing, on bigger accounts with over 1m and nothing has ever happened. I was thinking there was maybe a ban wave. If you don't have anything to contribute don't reply.

    I'm experiencing more bans compared to last year but that's just part of the game. As each month goes by they're going to have tighter spam filters considering that they're owned by facebook. Just adapt to this change and make sure your strategy isn't based on short term goals. If anything I just look at the bigger picture.

    If this will convert me to a paid advertiser on IG, then so be it. :)
