    Hello again everyone,

    I'm currently using a bot called NinjaGram to like photos based on hashtags. It's got all the features I need but it gets blocked constantly, seemingly no matter which interval I set. Even at one like per 90 seconds, it gets blocked. The Instagram app itself still works just fine, but the bot is almost useless at this point.

    Does this happen to pretty much all bots now, or are there any out there that this doesn't happen to? I'd like to try other options if they're out there. FollowLiker was recommended to me recently, and I wonder now if the extra money would have been worth it. These constant blocks are frustrating. :(

    Blocks happen if you are really hitting the limits. But if you aren't and it just happens maybe the bot you are using is outdated and using an older version on instagram.

    It seems like you've been blocked by IG for excessive likes. most probably it'll be a 1day ban.

    Various situations play a part in this. Mainly your IG account age. If you just created your account and start spamming with bots, you'll be flagged more frequently than older ig accounts hence the bans.

    Maybe stop for a few days and then try again but really slowly.
    Or use another bot.

    How many accounts are we talking about? Single account? or multiple accounts with proxies?

    Bot probably needs an update.

    Hey guys, sorry for the lack of information. What I was noticing was that I could still like/comment etc from the app itself, but the bot, which ran via Iconosquare, was being blocked from any actions. Now, I'm not an expert in any of this like most of you guys are, but I concluded from this that Instagram can decipher real human users because they aren't going through a third party site like Iconosquare. I wanted to know if there were other bots out there that didn't rely on such services, and therefore be indistinguishable by IG. I did some more research and ended up purchasing FollowLiker, which turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. It does not seem to run through any other third party I'm not experiencing any blocking like I was.

    Hope that makes sense, thanks!
