    Hey everyone.

    Today I got banned on one of my newer accounts. This account was three weeks old.

    I was using FL.

    Daily follow rate 475-550 with 50-62 second delays. I change this daily by about 15 seconds or so.
    Daily like rate 575-650 with 35-42 second delay. Also change the delay daily.

    Never unfollowed.
    Never commented.

    I requested to get the ban lifted, just letting everyone know my settings before I got banned!
    Will start again in a few days.

    Twick

    Aren't those settings a bit too high for a new account?

    Best Regards,

    Did you like and follow at the same time?i think one process per day/at a time is the safest way to go.

    The settings are not so important. The more important is the content, how many reports you had, etc.

    2-3 posts a day, all original. Very specific niche. Not sure on reports.

    If it is not marijuana and not porn, then it is number of followers that got you banned. Ask Instagram to unban.

    Can you elaborate on this? Number of followers? I had around 2.3k followers when I got banned.
    Just curious, slim chances to get unbanned? I'm at the send a pic of name/face to instagram stage.

    Send a pic if you need the acc.

    I meant "number of followings per day". That was too much. Probably the users were not interacting back at the rate you were following.

    yes, there is a high likelihood that you'll get your account back. Usually you'll get it back around 2-3 days after sending that beautiful pic. Make sure you make a sad facial expression, jk :D

    Just curious. Why does Instagram want a picture of your face with your name/code/username?

    Not sure how that proves that you own the account.

    An update: 18 hours ago (so exactly one week after sending the picture to Instagram) I got my account back.
    Woohoo.

    Although I lost about 200 followers, it's time to slow things down on this account.

    Do you think IG is using facial recognition? So once you use your own face to get back an account, I assume the chances go considerably down of getting a future account back with the same face. I'd assume they're tracking facial recognition, yeah?
