    Currently Using followliker on 5 accounts. My main account has 20k followers and i had my follow and unfollow limits pretty low, lower then most sudjestions on this forum. account is over a year old. Woke up this morning to my account being deleted. My followers love my posts . I am going to email instagram to try and get my account back i just wanted to know if anyone else had any advice.

    Sorry about that... how were you using FL? Following / liking / commenting? Were you spamming?

    This is to you, and all. Instagram has been doing spot checks and randomly temporaily block unfollowing on accounts. FL does not detect when you are blocked, and will keep trying to unfollow. Instagram detects that you are using a bot once your account is repetitively trying to unfollow even though it was blocked. To all BHW people, i would stop you bots until sometime in october when they stop this!

    This is actually true, which caused a ban on one of my accounts. FL kept trying to unfollow even though the account was blocked.

    this should be a basic feature though: after x amount of failed attempts, the bot should stop sending actions, even xgram had this back then, where you could configure the amount of failed actions after the bot should have stopped sending more, it should be around 2-3 failed attemtps and not more

    Good words, bot also should check account status before goes to work, pause any activity on this account and immediately inform owner if detect some problems or unusual situations. Its not so hard to code, hope some of followliker developer read this forum;)

    The "Status" column seems to be bugged as well, it says "OK" even after my account was banned.

    Not sure what's happening, either Instagram is updating or FollowLiker not being on point.

    it's purely because of the amount of unfollows and/or the too small delays
    however unfollowing manually is still safer then doing it with any tool, which don't have this "stopping after x amount of failed attempts" safety switch, because w/o that you can get your account not only temporary blocked, but permanently banned w/o even noticing anything
    just imagine, you set the bot to unfollow 500 people daily, let's say ig temporarily blocks you at 300 or idk what's the limit now, that's 200 failed attempts to unfollow, who does that when unfollow manually? lol

    i'm not sure where rockyrules2001 got the idea, that ig will stop handing out temp blocks/permabans in October, i wouldn't count on that, if FL doesn't have this feature, it needs to be added, until then it's not safe to use or any other bot which don't have this safety switch or you need to figure out and set the unfollows below the limits

    yeh i found the best way to check on Followliker is to check our activity log and see if there is an error.

    Out of 10 accounts 2 were unable to unfollow this morning. Hoping there only temp and not perms. out of all your accounts justchillin was only one affected?

    Same happened to me yesterday, run about 20 accounts on Igerslike and many of the ones that were unfollowing task were paused so I checked to see, some of my accounts were temporarily banned, and one of my bigger accounts (55k) is temp banned, but I think it will be okay, just stopped all tasks except liking and slowed everything down

    Igerslike has this feature, after a certain amount of fails, it automatically pauses, then if it fails more, it stops the tasks.
    Although it has this, and it saved some of my accounts, i've had two accounts banned, but they weren't big accounts (~10k ea) so didn't worry me too much
