    Hello guys :) there was a thread about this here, but I can't find it so I'm asking again:

    -Is there any possible way of canceling all my pending follow requests ? ( because of that i can follow up to 5500 people only :x )
    -What happens when the private profile I try to follow won't cancel or accept my request ? It stays forever in "pending" status or instagram automatically cancels it after 30 days ( I saw this somewhere, but not sure about the period of time / I'm not sure if it's actually true ...) Thanks in advance.

    I think there's no way to cancel all your requests without knowing the usernames of people whom you have followed.

    As for expiration, I don't know anything about that.

    So people who have 7.5k unaccepted pending requests from protected users are screwed? Damn

    You could say that. Instagram doesn't really have any specific way to do such a thing currently from my knowledge.

    I think I posted something about this a while back. My main account got screwed because I could only follow up to like 300-400 before maxing out. I had over 7000 pending requests. I stopped followliker for a few days on the account. Then for about a week I only let it run to 1000 daily follows and I'd unfollow within a few hours everyone. Then it was fine to go back up to 7500 shortly after. I think pending requests expire within 2-4 weeks. Just next time when you're following, hit don't follow private users and you won't be screwed ever again :)

    What program are you using that has an option for not following private accounts?

    If you are using FollowLiker you can tick "not track private users'.
