I used to be able to change my account to "public" to accept all follow requests, however this is not doing what it is supposed to do for me anymore for quite a while now. On my android device I can clearly see the amount of requests pending, but changing the privacy settings is simply not accepting them anymore. I'm currently assuming this is a bug of some sort on instagram's end, however I'm not sure. Please feel free to drop a message below if you are encountering this problem. Maybe you are reading this right now and thinking "hey I had this before!" and know a way around it, please do let me know! Also, before anyone chimes in on this; both my big accounts with 1000+ requests and small accounts with +-100 requests are having this issue, so I am not assuming this is happening based off the amount of requests that are pending. I might be wrong with that assumption, and if you know I am, again, let me know!
