    Hey guys, I don't know if I'm asking a bit much for being so new here, but I guess I will soon find out.

    I have a few accounts on the go, the account most important to me is for an automotive wax product. I usually post a few times a day, not at any particular times. I'm based in Scotland, however, we are happy to send all around the world so I've never really focussed much on optimal posting times.

    it is at 21k after around a year. I get around 2-400 per week and I guess I could be doing a lot better. I have never bought any followers but have used a coin system for likes in the past to

    Here are my settings....

    Theres usually around 20 tags, for instance, at the moment I have.
    #Ferrari # Bentley #autodetail #autodetailing #detailersofig #detailersofinstagram #topgear #Californiacars #meguiars #zymol #autoglym #autogeek #texascarsandcoffee #scottishcarshow #londoncarshow #carfest

    not used

    Usernames
    (I change these now and again, usually have some of my competitors in there, little and large, and detailing pages. there are around 10 in total. they range from 8 t0 60k

    Blacklist
    Tags blacklist none
    Usernames blacklist I have about 20 people in here that I can't stand the thought of following and unfollowing again.
    Keywords blacklist none

    Autostop
    Likes counter 0
    Comments counter 0
    Follows counter 0
    Unfollowers counter 0
    Timer 00:00
    Stop if no activity 3 hours

    I'm now wondering if it's unsafe not having any autostops in place, my instagress is on, non stop and has been for well over a year.


    So guys, I do apologise if it's a big ask to look over this for a noobie, I do appreciate your time if you've made it this far.

    It seems as though you've answered your own question.

    I genuinely didn't know this was a problem with gaining. I figured, it could get your account closed mind you.

    It can definitely get your account closed, the question is whether or not you're practicing safe botting practices.

    I have made changes to the times. I'll now try mimic 8 hours a day. I'll turn it on in morning.

    Mate, you are just asking for trouble.

    I know like most of us you are gonna think it won't happen to me but it WILL if you get manually reviewed.

    I am not against instagress as it is brilliant but you have to be sensible.

    There is no way in hell a human will like, follow etc for 8 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    It just wouldn't happen.

    Set your settings to what you as a human would do (6-9am) (1-2pm) (5.30-7pm) and the weekends off.

    The above is STILL a stretch but a MILLION times more likely to pass a manual review.

    I sincerely would hate for anyone who actually gives a shit about producing decent content for their customers to lose an account 2 years down the line because they thought they wouldn't get caught.

    Hope this helps.
