    I got banned within 2 days of using the settings they told me to use and they stopped responding after I said those got my main account banned.

    I haven't been using links or spammy comments either...

    Their message:

    Hello,

    Check the "Scrape Photo" box on the first page of the wizard.

    Uncheck the "Scrape only top result" box on the Scrape User Settings page.

    Set "Follower to following ratio" to 0.00 and set "Unfollow Limit" to
    5-15 on the Unfollow Settings page.

    Set "Like Limit" to 10-15 and set "Delay Like" to 15-20 seconds on the
    Like Photo Settings page.

    Set "Comment Limit" to 2-5 on the Comment Settings page. Also read the
    lower part of this page:

    Did you read the threads on this forum before you started using FL?

    Some yes, but I thought who would give the best advice? The makers of FL! Well I guess the people that created the software don't know how to use it?

    I'm guessing something else got you banned. Those settings would NEVER get you banned. I use 10 times more aggressive settings and have never had an issue. Be careful when jumping to conclusions about software that has existed for a long time, it's a good chance it could be user error.

    I had used their settings exactly how they told me, so I'm not sure what else it could be as I only have one account I used. It was a fairly newer account, but it got banned fast. No links, no spammy comments, they ignored my e-mails after I said it got banned and told me to talk to instagram about it.

    So really you just ignored the advice on here? Because if you looked you will notice the majority suggesting new accounts to start low and slow and build up. FL aren't psychic, they don't know how old your account is so the settings they suggest should be taken with a pinch of salt. Also, they probably told you to inform instagram about your banned account because that would be the best way to get it back.

    Man, if you've read forum more, then you would've seen how many people got banned recently for no reason. @Isaxmx was banned after doing 53 follows when on regular days he was doing 1200 follows. any explanation to that? no. new accounts have very strict limits towards them, so, create a new one and start everything from the beginning. it's always easy to blame somebody else but a bit of research and caution never hurt anyone. good luck!

    No one has the Golden Settings to botting, not even FL. The suggested settings on FL is only a guideline. Your acc got ban maybe from how it was created in the first place and or what you added in the profile.

    If there are no links, no spammy content and no duplicate pictures your proxy was banned before probably.

    You could be happy that they even answered your question. When you buy a car you don't ask the dealership to teach you how to drive...

    yeah, should've used more appropriate words, not the banned one
