    I use followercheck.co it's not 100% accurate but you can't really get better.

    I think there are some ways to check but nothing can show exactly but it will show an estimated figure.

    I'm unsure of the sites, which do these checks of any type of social media account, not just instagram, because different sites can give you pretty different results.

    I think the best solution is if check it yourself. Take a look at the engagement of the content which was uploaded. Check the total amount and quality, check who liked, commented the posts, go a few levels down. Rinse and repeat this to newer and older posts and you'll have a pretty good picture of any account. It shouldn't take you more than a few minutes.

    If you want to buy SOs, not just the fake followers itself, but the actual account activity should be a concern too. If an account passes a fake follower test, it doesn't mean that it will worth the investment, because it still can provide low engagement.

    I was using followercheck.co to tests few accounts & I think there's just one website providing this audit for free.

    I would personally check it manually.

    Accounts with 10k followers should have around 500-1000 likes/picture and around 5-20 comments. (At least all my 10k accounts have these statistics)

    Watch for when the post a picture if all their likes come in right away, or if its periodically throughout the day.

    Check to see if the likes on the pictures are from the accounts followers, or not.

    Check the accounts of the people who like. See if they are following 1k+ people.

    Check the accounts of the people who like. Look at their liking history and see if they are liking completely random accounts.

    Check to see if their followers drop around 50+/day

    You can also PM me their username and Ill take a look.

    Don't use any service, which asks for your login credentials.

    But it's not the case here, it asks for authorization (what you can revoke at any point) and as such, it's safe to use.

    It requires login and that seems fishy to be so I didn't use it.
    You don't login too.

    And reporting the link to Mods - To the guy who posted it.

    Home Page:
    Use SocialBlade to check their accounts. No login required.

    If their own accounts isn't growing or losing followers, their shoutouts probably suck!

    Check likes and comments.

    Likes could be bought but it's usually exposed by comments.

    Some people inflate their comments with engagement groups and comment chains. But it's easily exposed when you see the same accounts making the same/similar comments for the most recent posts.

    Awesome. I never heard of socialblade before. Seems to work well. The only problem is that most of my accounts haven't even made it to their list of monitored accounts. So I will be adding all new accounts to socialblade right when I make them so by the time Im ready to sell some of my accounts, it would allow me to sell them for higher price since I can prove the statistics.

    Great addition with the engagement groups. Forgot to mention that :)

    It's funny how people get paranoid it's not that hard to see if it's risky or not, even more if you're working in this business.. Answers like this really motivates to share with the community...

    Anyway I also like using Iconosquare or Minter stats to check on competitors, interesting accounts or accounts I want to buy. (didn't put the links this time, happy?)

    Socialblade is okay also but there are more stats on other services.
