    Hello forum :cool:,

    maybe you could help me with a general question. I noticed that among (instagram) bots
    1. some identify themselves as a mobile device (instadub e.g. I think?),
    2. others identify themselves as normal webbrowser (FollowingLike e.g. I think).
    (As far as I understand it, some functions can only be used when identified as mobile device.)

    BUT: For the other (most important) functions (like/follow/unfollow):
    Isn't it much saver, when a bot identifies itself as a normal webbrowser?
    I mean then the problem of "faking a phone" is not relevant?

    Or is there an error in my thinking? Thanks for any help or information!
