    I switched from using Instagress (on "fast" setting) to FollowLiker with an account I started back in April. This is just a photography account that I started for fun so I don't have links in my bio or anything. I ran Instagress for about a month and a half straight after I started the account. I didn't care too much about the account getting banned at the time but it started getting a pretty good follow back ratio so I kept on it and decided to be somewhat conservative with the botting.

    Ever since switching to FL about a week ago I have gotten what appears to be temp bans twice on following but it only blocks me on the phone app. The IG website, as well as FL and Instagress have no problem following/unfollowing. Is this normal? I got about 300 random new followers one day after trending in the top of several hashtags and that seems to be where the shit hit the fan.

    As I mentioned, I ran Instagress on "fast" setting 24/7 and never had this problem before. My FL is set to follow 300-400 one day, and then unfollow the same amount the next day, 7 am to midnight. This is more or less the same pattern that I used with Instagress. Instagress was even following/unfollowing in the same day with no consequences and wasn't even on a "human" schedule like FL. My delays are all within "recommended" values for new accounts as well.

    Am I doing something obviously wrong here or could this just be a bug since I can still follow from the official website and the bots? I shut everything down just to be safe but I'm just wondering what's going on. I can't figure out why LESS activity from FL would get me flagged vs. using Instagress at full speed and never having an issue.

    Nope. Single account, single IP/device.
