Can you get banned for manually liking and following / unfollowing using a web viewer?

    With the recent spate of bans that seem to be happening I wondered if anyone knows if it's safer to manually like, comment, follow & unfollow using a web viewer like Iconosquare? Anyone got any experience with this? A rough idea of daily limits would be very useful.

    I've worked so hard on my account I don't want to risk a ban and have to start from scratch.

    Thanks in advance :)

    I once got banned from using the instagram app alone. If you constantly hit the followlimit or do spam comments you'll get banned

    And no-one knows the actual limits, just the hear-say? Everyone seems to have different ideas....

    you could get verified bot-like activity. If it's not obviously, you can stay safe

    I think what he meant was, don't try to use high settings.

    Just use conservative settings so that you can stay under the radar so to speak.

    I say you still can get ban from using other means other than bots. If you get reported by xx amount of users, you are out.
