    Not something I found but rather a member did but I can't find the thread with the post in.
    Will update this thread if I manage to find out who it was.

    Just a quick trick when following people.
    The current limit by Instagram is 50 people per hour, simple way to bypass this is to follow 49 people, wait 5 minutes and repeat.


    Found him: Hajro
    Props for finding this

    I think this is based on API limits. I've done more than 50 per hour on mobile.

    Not sure how, the limit is set by Instagram.
    You can still click the follow button but it instantly unfollows.

    If it's a new account you will get banned before being able to follow 50 accounts per hour

    noob match: 60mins*60s= 3600s
    49 follows / hour = 1 follow to 73.4s
    Set your delay somewhere between 77-80
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    My account is 73 weeks old, so if you have an aged account you should be good to go. I've been doing this for a good half year or so and so far haven't had any consequences. I tried it with a month old account a few months ago though and I got banned. So if you have a nice aged account it's fairly safe, or has been with my experiences.
