Are there consequences to repeated captchas?

    Hello BHW :)

    I've triggered my first captcha on IG yesterday (Friday June 4th). IG requested another captcha two minutes after the first request, so I stopped FL for the rest of that day.

    I believe the the captcha request was triggered because I did not alter my FL settings enough. Delays stayed the same for weeks. I only changed my start & end times. I am on top of this now. FL taking multiple breaks throughout the day and changing(minor) all settings daily including scrape queries daily, just in case.

    I would like to push IGs limits (recording successful FL stats with spreadsheets now) by following and liking as many users and photos as possible. Captchas do not bother me at all, but before I push the limits, are there any consequences to triggering multiple captchas?

    Feel free to add any other insights not directly relating to my questions.

    Thank you BHW :D

    what are your delays ?????

    i run fl without break on the most accounts and there is no problem ... your setting must be to high or the time delay to short.

    Captchas don't do fuck all to your account. Just don't do any actions for 24hrs and you will be fine. I have 15 spam accounts that have botted everyday for 18-24 months posting 60-80 comments a day and following/unfollowing. Each account would have received 50-100 captchas over that time.

    Before IG requested a captcha, my follow and like delays were approx. 6sec. - 30sec., and would move them around to something similar every couple of days.

    Let me know if these are short delays.

    Nothing is going to happen to your accounts if you get a captcha. In my experiences, I noticed that it mostly happens during unfollowing.
