    Hi fellow blackhatters,

    I use Follow Liker for several of my Instagram accounts, which have been working smoothly up until recently. During the past month I have had major problems with password resets and back to back phone verifications. I have lowered my settings in follow liker several times, even turned it off completely for an entire week. After turning it on again nothing had changed. Appears like my accounts have been blacklisted as botting by Instagram or something. I have no clue what to do, this can't keep going on. Some of my accounts can not follow, like nor comment at all with the bot at the time.

    Anyone who knows what to do? Should I stop botting for x amount of time?

    Any help is highly appreciated.

    If you want to piss off your competitors:
    1. before logging in go to forgot password and enter their account name. This will trigger a password reset email to be sent to their email (at least an option to change password)
    2. Via a fake account, send them a message saying that you have reported them to a friend that works for instgram for breaking terms and conditions.
    3. They will put 2 and 2 together when they get the email and shit themselves at least for a while..they might even stop botting for a period of time

    I get what you're saying, could be the case. Although, it doesn't explain the phone verifications and the fact that some of my accounts have temporarily (hopefully) lost access to following, liking and commenting.

    I'm getting phone verification on my accounts nonstop for the past 3 days. Passwords are not being reset, but every few hours I have to re-verifify the phone numbers for some odd reason...

    The phone verifications started a couple of days ago for me too, the password resets has stopped for me, at least for now. Maybe the phone verifications are something many users have gotten the last three days, weird.

    Instagram has definitely been giving more phone verification and password resets.
    I've only had like 2 phone verification out of 150ish accounts for the past 2-3 months but all of a sudden, i'm getting like 5 password resets, and multiple PV.

    I been recieving phone verification on 4 accounts in the past 3 days. but what i notice is, that
    when i verify a second account with same phone number then the other account goes back to verification
    meaning that they are allowing me to only verify 1 account under 1 phone number.
    wich is really bad for me, since i own 2 instagram stores with the same phone number,
    then i have 4 diff accounts that i use for hobby i had my personal phone number also on them. now its driving me crazy
    need to get numbers from family members to verify all of them separate!

    i wonder what happens if you link those accounts together? maybe that allows you to verify multiple accounts with 1 number?

    btw, how much money are you making with those IG stores?

    Same problem as everyone above, the biggest problem is I buy verification codes and I only get one use at of them so if I verify my account and the next day it needs verified again im shit out of luck and it's getting costly

    Stop follow/unfollowing for a week. Just upload photos and see if you go back to normal

    Yeah I paused my accounts for 24 hours and only been sharing and still got a few phone verifications, my ad accounts with links are real sensitive and so are my newer accounts even with low settings. All my aged accounts are fine. But yeah I think I will just pause everything it will be a good time to check organic activity and what not

    Please make sure the phone numbers are legit and so that is not the problem i would start tracing by there,
    Right after make sure like people said to pause your accounts for a while , this might be a sign that your account is really blacklisted , and so much verification will probably end-up in a ban.
    I would be carefull :)

    Is it really necessary to buy phone verifications, personally I use a private phone, although, can't you just use any service that comes up when googling "sms phone verification"? There are many free alternatives! I recall using that kind of service some time back, as far as I remember it works great. Hope it helps :)

    I have always used the same phone to verify up to five different accounts, it has worked without any problems, well... till now. Maybe, like you're saying, they only allow one phone per account. Which would explain the problems I'm getting. Never thought about it, but maybe it is so that whenever I verify one account, another account linked to the same phone suddenly needs to be re-verified. That's why they are coming back all the time. Have to investigate in that, and try to see some pattern. Thanks for the input man, appreciate it.

    Edit: What do you mean by "instagram stores"?

    Just use an online service with long term re-verification support to get a different number for each account, and sleep tight. Wink, wink ;) Unless of course you prefer to keep in touch with your friends and relatives from time to time, and you need an excuse, lol :)
