    My Instagram profile currently says I follow 645 users.

    In actual fact I follow about 45. The other 600 are accounts that Instagram has disabled and therefore do not show up on the list and I'm unable to unfollow them even on third party sites.

    Do any of you guys know a fix?

    Instagram is aware there is a bug where the count isn't correct, but it's been over a year and the problem still stands so they're not interesting in fixing it in a hurry.

    Thats weird. Usually when accounts are disabled they get removed from your follower's list/following list.

    As far as I know, deleted and disabled accounts are not removed from following list. It's a bug that they are well aware of.

    Same issue. Says I'm following 21 people when I'm only actually really following one.

    it's not true in this form
    they do get removed from your followings, but the following counter stays the same and there's nothing you can do
