FL's automation time isn't randomized?

    Recently I noticed a horrendeous thing. FL stops automating at the EXACT time that you set it to. It doesn't go +/- 30minutes (similar to what Instagress used to have) to what you set it to, but instead will start and finish automating at the exact same second 7 days a week. When I purchased the software this was my initial concern, however, the support assured me the software randomizes the times a bit by default. Today, after weeks, I noticed this isn't the case at all. How doesn't everyone using FL just get banned because this is just such a ridiculously obvious give-away.

    Update: I have since wrote to FL support and this was their answer:

    "No, it won't raise any flags."

    Meaning they admit to their software not randomizing automation time and believe that this will not be caught by instagram's algorhythms. Am I really the only one that's having a problem with this?

    One of the reason why am skeptical about jumping on the Followliker bus. I follow 1,000 daily with an account created feb 2017, and i rarely get ban, just because i use a script that randomize the wait time between follow i.e follow user 1, wait 5 secs follow user 2, wait 10secs, follow user 3, wait 4 secs...That way instagram bots would think it manual.

    That's not the issue. FL does that. It's just that it doesn't randomize the start and end of automation each day. It'll start, let's say, at exactly 8:34am every day without randomizing the time +/- a few minutes.

    it should be like this:
    monday: 8:34am
    tuesday: 8:21am
    wednesday 8:44am
    etc.

    but instead, it's like this:
    monday: 8:34am
    tuesday: 8:34am
    wednesday: 8:34am

    very obvious sign of automation if you ask me. I'm still not sure how my accounts haven't got banned yet tbh.

    Following/Unfollowing bunch of accounts each day is a clear sign of automation.Just because IG allows it doesn't mean you are getting away with it.

    I've been using followliker for years, with no problems with this. What I do is switch my start and stop times every few weeks. If you wanted to be extra safe, you can create multiple instances of your project, and set them to run at specific times for certain days of the week; then you can use the checkboxes to switch the day of the week each project is assigned to, periodically.
