    I had been running a personal account on FL fairly rigorously. I've had no problems until now.
    NOW, when I put my info into FL, it likes 3 photos and then stops.
    Is it possible that Instagram has banned my accounts use of FL? All the other accounts I'm running are FINE.
    I have around 19,000 followers. Only following 400, and only use the FLC method in Followliker. No follows, no comments... just likes.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. i think it's so weird that I can run 20 other accounts flawlessly, but my own personal account
    doesn't work.

    Do you get an error in the activity log on FL? If not, what are your setting like? Post a screen-shot. Could help diagnose your issue relatively quickly. Also, do you use proxies? How many photos are you scraping per interval?
    Try stopping the automation on FL and check whether you're able to like (at least 30) photos manually from your mobile device. If it works, then the issue is with your FL settings. If you get an IG pop-up telling you they restrict certain actions, then your like flow has been too aggressive and you may need to wait 24-48 hours before trying again. And this time, be easy with the likes.

    Hi, I don't get an error in the FL Log, and my settings used to be 1 like per 2 - 25 seconds.
    I've changed them to 1 like per 30-50 seconds now.
    I was able to like 30 photos from my mobile device, and no IG popup.

    I've managed to like around 400 photos today using FL with the less agressive like settings (even though I never comment or follow), so that might have solved the problem. It still seems pretty strange that it suddenly started working again!

    Edit: And I don't use proxies. About 5 of the accounts were started with the same phone. The rest are spread across other devices. Does this make a difference? (I'm guessing it does).

    Oh, it's stopped again. It's so weird.
    Some of the other accounts do the same... on very low settings. They'll like 3-8 photos, and then just stop.

    Well,

    They may be temporary Block your account to like photo. But If it continue then may be they will do it permanently for spam. As recently they did a mass update

    I'm not sure why this would be happening to just one account though.

    i was able to like a ton of pictures on instagram without anything popping up (I liked at least 50 before I stopped).
    My FL settings were the same as they always were when the bot stopped working.
    Some accounts are fine, some will like 3-20 photos, and then just completely stop. It's so frustrating.

    Have you updated to the new FL version: Folikr_8_6_5?
    If not, go to followliker.com and download the new version and try again. If you have already done that, then close the software and try to relaunch it again. It should help. This seems to be a problem with your FL and not your IG accounts since they all work fine manually.
    If you are running more than 20 accounts, things do slow down after some time...and you may need to create a new project. You can transfer all the info (blacklist/whitelist users, queries, comments and settings) to the new project and it should continue right were you left it.

    I was going to say... I have just one project open, and it's the first one I ever opened. It could have something to do with that. Also, it's good to know that you can transfer everything over!! I have 8_6_4 right now, so that might be a problem too. I'll do all of these things and see how it improves. I really appreciate the advice :)

    So this is still happening to me.
    I think it has something to do with the FLC method.

    Every other account is fine except the one I'm running FLC on. Does anyone have FLC settings I can borrow to test this?
    FLC is where you target a user's followers, and go and like 3 of each of their photos. If there's a different way to do this I'd love to know, as it's messing up my bot!

    This is what I have right now.
    the bot is just going in and liking 3 photos. sometimes 6. sometimes 600. it makes no sense.

    Task Selection-
    tick the following boxes: scrape user,scrape photo, like




    Scrape user settings-
    scrape user limit: 35
    ignore private users: tick
    Select new: query type = normal search, query = FLC:username




    scrape photo settings-
    scrape photo limit:3
    scrape only top result: tick
    Select new: query type = Relevant, query FLC:username

    but why would it only be happening to one of my accounts. now, with the same settings - it's liking 35 of ONE person's photos.
