    2 unfollow per hour? Looks like you really messed up with them lol.
    I also feel like they got a little more strict, but I can still unfollow 100-150 at once without hitting any limit.

    How old is your account?

    Are you able to unfollow more than 20 /hour manually?
    What app are you using?
    Have you tried to let it rest for a bunch of days?

    20 seems to be too low, did you do any other spam with your account ?

    few unfollow apps (android) changed their limits, adjusting to ig api I guess, "follower insight" went down to 30/h, trackagram 20/h and so. the weird part is that I cant do 100+ unfollows with some accounts, but some others are stopping at the 30-20/h limit...

    i have the same problem using the 2 same apps. i assume its from instagram, not the apps. i could not even follow ONE user! today is the 3rd day for me.

    i have been using them to unfollow and follow 1000+ daily for a month. before i almost hit 7k followers, this happened.

    i am hoping maybe the problem will go away if i wait a week? (i never got any phone or email verification.) only captchas a few times.
