    Hello people!

    I’m wondering is there is any way of detecting (or pausing) Followliker for an account when IG blocks it temporarily from following. This is what I mean: http://i.imgur.com/xV1q7a4.gifv

    So far I only detect it when I see my “following” number decreasing instead of increasing (i follow more than unfollow) but I fear it might be too late one day and IG will permanently block my accounts because of automate activity.

    Is there any way of detecting this and pausing the account right after the temporary follow block?

    Thanks!

    you will get a message in the logs. i wrote a script to download all logs, sort messages, and send emails to you.
    the script (using autohotkey) depends on screen resolution. so you have to write your own.

    Hey! That sounds interesting... can you give me a bit more info about how to achieve this? I can't even find where FL keeps old logs. I just see the ones FL shows in the interface and that's only a few minutes of activity.
    Would be great if you can describe the process. I'll try to automate it after understanding it :)

    Thanks!

    Actually, it's not. Click the little arrow below the activity log to page through the logs.

    :) thanks but I did take that into consideration. My logs are constantly restarted for some reason. I thought it was for everyone like that.

    right-click each account gives you individual logs. i did suspect they are not consistent/reliable. so you prolly have to check (run the script) more frequently.

    google MS AutoHotKey for how to use the scripting language. it also comes with a recorder.

    @txholdem, are you sure this particular Instagram ban (follow block) is reported in FollowLiker logs? FollowLiker's support just answered me
    "It is difficult to track. Instagram doesn't send any error message."

    Home Page:
    There are 2 possibilities:
    -you are following too much people pre day
    -you are using not private proxies (some proxy can be banned by instagram).

    What program do you use?

    Hey! Thanks for chiming in buddy. The thread on itself was mostly aimed at finding a way to detect when the "following new users block" happens, more than how to prevent IG from blocking, but since you ask:
    - I follow between 350 and 450 accounts per day. Unfollowing between 300 and 400 per day. Liking between 300 and 700 pics a day.
    - Using 3 accounts per private proxy (instantproxies). Around 20 accounts in total.
    - I run FL on a virtual machine.

    i havent tocuhed FL for a couple months now. i remembered it was something like "you are not allowed to perform this action until next Tuesday" and if you continue doing it (e.g., following), it would keep adding a day, e.g., next Wednesday, etc.

    it is FL's duty to report whatever error message received from IG. otherwise what good is it? you just have to manually look at the logs to see what kind of messages you got from IG.
