    Thanks for taking a minute to visit my thread, I hope I can provide some assistance to those interested or those already in the Instagram game on how to MANUALLY follow & unfollow pretty frequently without being blocked for 24HR+. Now enough with the rambling, let's get to the content.

    For the most part, it's pretty simple. Most people will just go to someone's followers (for ex: @beyonce) and follow until Instagram doesn't allow them and that's all nice until Instagram blocks you from doing anything for 24hr+. The key to following and unfollowing manually AS OF RIGHT NOW (2/2/16) is to follow around 30 people at a time. Instead of following as many as it will let you, follow around 25-30. You can then return 5-10 minutes later and do this again. So instead of following 100-200 people a day and getting blocked for basically spammy actions, space out your timing. Same thing for unfollowing. This will allow you to follow/unfollow MUCH MORE without risking your account.

    DO NOT just run through and unfollow or follow until it blocks you. Take it 30 follows/unfollows at a time, check your emails, make a snack, whatever your heart desires for 5-10 minutes and then hop back to it. I'm sure many people already know this but I hope this can be of assistance to anyone who is currently following/unfollowing or is interested in doing so. To finish, I'd like to thank everyone in the community as I've spent years reading, learning, and using some of the knowledge I found on this site to earn my income online. Thank you for your time!

    I followed 120 people every 10-15 mins until i followed 1600 total :)
    No ban, no blocks, i've actually never gotten them from following, you just gotta know what you're doing

    Good stuff man! Yeah, it's nothing insane to figure out, a lot of people just go crazy and follow until they are blocked. As long as you don't spam 24/7 on Instagram, you are usually fine. :D

    it all depends on the age of the account. with aged accounts i did 1900 follows a day. then i changed it up and did 900 follows and 900 unfollows in a day. Did it for a few months, no problem. I stopped in jan when FL had password reset issues.

    This is great information, I hate that 24 hour block that happens sometimes.

    Out of curiosity to you manual users like myself:

    1. Is the 24 hour block the only real block we run the risk of? Do manual accounts ever get banned and if so what did it take?

    2. What are you guys doing about private accounts? Just immediately un-requesting them?

    Thank you for the help!

    I have followed and 25 ~ 35 people, and waited 15 minutes to do it again, and it works out.

    An observation that did not comment: After passing 35 people in a row, or around it, the Instagram begins to follow no further, although you see saying "following" when in fact this does not happen.

    If you want to see on your own, inspect for Firebug, and see the request response when you click "Follow", it should return error (code different than 200) and in the response comes something like: "you have already followed many time".

    Although you do not receive any messages, seeing the requisitions you notice this.

    I believe that when that happens, and you add up thinking that it is working, Instagram begins to see how many people you are following after the server is already refusing these requests, then it blocks your profile.
