    Browser mode with Azure VM IPs no VPN/proxy. About 3 instances per ip. I don't thinki it's an IP block. New accounts I just set up immediately after the mass block have been running on the same VMs fine for last 5-6 days.

    The 5K/month theory seems to make more sense since the blocked accounts were doing 15-17K/month.

    Jarvee is not THE problem. ALL others services are affected aswell. Btw it seems that the precise limit is 5500 follow per month

    Throwing in what's happening on my side of things:

    Managing approx 20 IG profiles, each on it's own proxy, some also on a VPN.
    18 profiles have been blocked from following. 2 are still fine.
    The profiles that are follow-blocked were following every 90-120 seconds, and up to 900 a day. (autolikes about 350 a day slow drip)
    The two that are fine are following every 200-300 seconds, and under 400 a day. (autolikes at 39 a day slow drip)

    This is the longest follow action mass block I've seen in the years I've been doing this. There's never been a block this long. (I'm unfollowing currently as I'm quite sure that unfollowing does not relate to daily follow actions.)

    What I'm positive of: The follow-block issue has nothing to do with IPs, VPNs, or the tool you're using (jarvee, followliker, etc).
    -->> The follow-block occurs from either following too fast or following too many in the day. <<--

    The only two questions on my mind:
    1) When will the follow-block get lifted?
    2) What is the new slow healthy follow speed and how many can be done daily without causing the follow-block.

    Footnote recommendation: Post on boards, forums, reddit, etc and make up an experience that sounds like you were legitimately using Instagram for something important, but then this follow-block issue occurred, screwing up your plans. For example: We all went to a networking seminar, and as soon as people at the event started following others, we all got blocked and haven't been able to follow each other since. Or another example: I follow all the people that like my photos. Now I can't follow anyone. Why is following people that like my posts against Instagram's terms?

    If there are these types of posts cropping up, I think Instagram will take notice.

    I have tested it with an account below 4000 Follows in the last 30 days and it's working so far. I reduced speed and actions though. On Jarvee + dedicated proxy. So it's definetly not the tool it's the speed and number of actions. If it's true that it will block at 5500 then it's going to be much less interesting for acquisition.

    'Cause celebrities are not following accounts that we target with automation. Instagram is being generous and let us follow celebrities instead of friends ? lol

    So I guess something is wrong with proxies or activities done in the last 30 days, as you can see here on the last page I've shared a printscreen and 70% of the accounts where working, today others get unblocked and tomorrow I'll share other printscreen here. It's a matter of time it will pass.

    Any update on this? Is it still working with custom bot and good proxies?

    Does it still work with public software and low follow numbers (like 200-300 a day)?

    Thanks!

    I'm managing an account that has been blocked since May 8th. Since no follows have been done since then I'm well below 5500 follows in the last 30 days. I've tried following one account every other day from my phone on a mobile ip just to check if the block has been removed. I'm starting to wonder if attempting to follow when you have an active block extends the length of the block. Thoughts?

    Some people claiming they are responding to comments under photos of Instagram IG account and sending surveys about these blocks. It doesn't hurt to complain there with a nice stories.

    Hi there!

    If you don’t mind, allow me to explain to you that I run multiple Instagram accounts and NONE of them have been blocked.

    Some of them has made more than 7k interactions because I have tested this theory and everything works fine.

    Usually, I don’t run so many interactions because I don’t want to ruin the "REACH". It’s a clear connection between low engagement and reach drop & high-speed interactions.

    At the end of the day, remember that the main purpose of automation is to generate REAL TRAFFIC but traffic without ENGAGEMENT and good post Reach is like buying fake followers...

    So for the ones who are reading this post, try to understand that those days with 600/1k interactions/day are gone.

    Yes, it’s working with custom bot & good quality proxies.

    Actually, I think this is the only stable solution for now.

    I think it’s pretty obvious that this isn’t a BUG or some kind of "mistake" done by Instagram.

    For the ones who are still hoping this, time will give the best answer.
