    I don't know what's happening with my instagram account. I was gaining daily 100-200 real followers. Now I'm seeing that everyday more than 50-60 fake bots without profile picture and posts follow my account. I'm tired of blocking them. Even i put my account on private then also fake profile is requesting me.. Any solution for this?
    Sorry for my bad English
    Thanks

    Its not just you. The largest accounts on IG all go through this. Anybody who surprasses a certain amount of followers deals with this issue. Unless you want to block them all, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Just be happy about your free followers, you might have to remove some spam comments though which can be a bit of a hassle.

    The problem is that if I'm showing someone to see my account is for sale they say all are fake bots cuz they check from start. I'm just fed up of blocking them... And my friend suggested to turn on privacy but then also bots are sending follow request..

    A temporary solution to this would be to set your account to private and hire a cheap virtual assistant to disallow all bots from following you. Not the best solution though. :/

    just keep deleting them/blocking them until you finish the sale of your account
