    I recently started an instagram account and it grew pretty quickly i had it @ almost 3k followers with in a week, but the past 4 days I haven't been able to follow anyone. I do everything manually since it's just one account, I also unfollowed some people already. Maybe I'll get instagress in the future if I can get my account back to being able to follow. Sorry if this question has already been answered to someone with the same problem, I did search the forum before posting though.

    Thanks in advance!

    Just unfollow users and start again.
    You have hit the follow limit.

    Cheers

    I'm guessing you didn't hit 7,5k followings, did you? at which number were u stuck? I'm having the same problems with lower limit numbers. Mostly, private users fck u all the way up 'cause if they don't accept nor decline your request it'll still be a "empty spot", but I'm definitely noticing the limits going down and i don't know why. Maybe resting for a few days could help.

    well, then you might have around 1k private users, but that wasn't the case with me so that's why I was asking. :C

    whats the daily follow/unfollow limit? cos i build my personal account using same technique... i follow 600+ accounts daily with averagely a 50% follow back rate (i.e 300 daily follow backs), well yet to be remembered by IG or being banned or so, would appreciate if i can know the daily limit to know if i can increase my followings daily or reduce them to stay safe...

    I've seen some users having higher numbers up to 1000 per day, just be sure you maybe stay under 60/hour but the best thing would be to slowly increase the following-rate (idk maybe by 25? depending on how fast you wanna push the limits up) and see if u get a temporary ban or not.

    ok, let me ask you something guys

    my follow limit was 5300, prob the rest was private profiles
    since then i was unfollowing and following, but only public profiles....but every time I unfollow my follow limits get's lower. Now I am at 3800 and can't follow more than that.
    Is there a way to fix this, or what to do?

    this was fixed for me since yesterday I had the same problem, what I did is to leave the push notifications on so it updates when I posted a picture on my account and then on the same day I didnt use my phone for at least 12 hours to 16 hours and it was fixed for me, I was login with my instagram on this phone also and left the app open so it reset the account during those hours, Im not sure if it this but now I can follow normally somehow.

    well, I don't understand why you left noticifactions on ? and why did you leave the app open? Why should it "reset" with the App open?

    idk i left them on because i want to know when something is going on because if you check back and forth it stops whatever your account was doing i think and i left the app because that is where i made my follow request so i assume it will work better this way

    mhm, in about a week I'll rest my account for 2-3 days and see if anything changes, but right now it really keeps going down on the limit everytime I start unfollowing. Maybe it's some kind of "hidden" temporary ban which you have to get rid off. This never happened to any of my accounts before, just on this one. :/

    Thank you for all your answers it seems like my problem has been fixed, today I was able to follow again.

    I dont have exact numbers for how much people I follow since i dont use followliker. I just follow people untill I can't follow anymore for that day. This is probably not the best method :p.

    Yeah, seems you hit 7500 following limit.
    I'd suggest you get something to keep track of private users you follow who don't accept / decline and go back and unfollow those people in future.
    Keep a list, it will help in long run

    I noticed some really strange things on Instagram today. I managed to unfollow around 900 people in about an hour manually (sh*t my fingers :DDD) everytime I unfollowed I was unable to follow anyone... I was thinking, damn what's happening? Well, now I got temporarily blocked from unfollowing (a message appeared which doesn't bother me at all) but I also cannot follow. I guess I'll rest the follow/unfollow thing, as well as likes for the next couple of days, this might fck up my engagement but well, I don't know what's happening here.

    Maybe my account needs some rest, hopefully I'll be able to follow back normal soon :D
