    I have a pretty new account, I tried turning up the daily amount of follows a bit to see how far it would go

    Now I cannot follow, I can like, I can share images, I can unfollow

    but if I click follow nothing happens, FL reports it as a successful follow but no one is followed

    any idea how long it will last?


    Actually i will just wait, how can i delete this post?

    In most cases it lasts 24 hours, however, you have to stop the other activities (at least trying to follow) in the meanwhile. If you get flagged again, the ban will reset from start (24 hours) again.

    TL;DR: Leave your account rest for 30 hours and try again.

    don't do anything with the account otherwise the ban will reset if you do the same action again. sometimes (for example with comments) you get a pop-up when you try to comment manually within the IG account. I got banned once for DM's but when i manually sent a DM it just deletes the post (and no pop up).
