    How about turning FL off for today, that should help if it's a temp ban.

    Increase your follow delay, there's a lot of time to get to the daily numbers you have set.

    How maby many people is account following? It might've reached to the maximum limit or the problem might be that the your account might've reached the hourly limit which us unknown (it's NOT 160).

    I got this on the first week, wait a day or two and it will be gone. Set the hourly limit lower and the delay longer. I don't know the limits, but I've got a feeling that it's changing from day to day according to your activity.

    Your limits depends on several factors, like age of account, try increasing your delays, I'm following almost the same amount of users, 50-70 seconds delay & 5-15 follow limit

    Not trying to derail thread but had a similar question(just purchased FL). In the activity log it continues to say "Daily follow limit reached". Account status says OK in the main window, I ran it for a while and it no longer follows. Does this just mean that it has reached the following limit I set for it?

    I was just curious because if I stop FL and then go to manually follow somoene the follow continues to stick. I don't think it's a temp block is it? The account is literally a week old so I just wanted to make sure I wasn't pushing it.

    Yes, It reached its limit. Check your FL settings & increase the limit
