    Hi,

    I have been using Instagress recently. Its working good but it dosen't follow private profiles (it's a bug and their support is too slow)

    Is there any alternative to it?

    Ps: I only have a mac.

    I'm guessing you have the "Don't follow private users" unchecked as you mention a bug.

    But why do you want to follow private users?

    If you follow 2000 inactive/fake accounts or people just dont accept or deny your request you're left hanging until the requests expire.

    That hypothetical 2000 eats into your 7500 follow limit so you'll find next time round you will only be able to follow 5500...

    Q. Do I have to keep "Don't follow private users" checked or unchecked in order to follow profiles that are in private mode?

    By private profiles, I don't mean inactive/fake accounts. These are the profiles that have their account in private mode. I have mostly seen real people keep their profile private.

    Unchecked.

    You have no way of knowing through instagress if accounts are active/inactive or fake I have loads of inactive accounts set to private.

    I would personally avoid private accounts for the valid reason I mention above...

    Yeah. Its unchecked. Still it is not following users in private mode :(


    In my niche & target, most of the genuine users keep their account in private mode.

    Sorry to hear that and as you say instagress is terrible at replying to emails...

    All the best with your niche :)

    Follow liker works for mac and I have it set up to follow anyone that recently like a recent photo from popular accounts in my niche. They usually respond pretty quick to the request, and follow back. :):cool:
