    Hello, I downloaded an app called realfollowers, bought 2k followers for my personal account.
    Got 7k instead and it does not stop. I'm getting 2k followers a day, it is really frustrating.

    Is there any way I can stop it? I cannot block them all, it's not possible. I really don't want to delete my account because I have been building it up a long time. Right now I have set my IG account to private, but I won't leave it that way forever.

    I tried to contact the app but they haven't replied yet. Maybe anyone has any ideas what to do, I would really, really appreciate it.

    The easiest way to stop this is to start UN-following profiles that have ads on their pages immediately when you see the ad. Popular accounts realize they have a huge opportunity to advertise either brands or others wanting a huge following.

    Thanks, I'm doing it now but nothing has changed yet. :( I really hope this stop at some time because I'm tired of blocking them, they follow me every second... I really don't know what to do. And the bots are new, they had been made today or yesterday. It seems like non-stop.

    I really don't understand what's the point of doing this??? And will this stop?

    It's possible they may not have registered that you've gotten the followers from them and so they keep sending you more until you reach the amount you've paid for
    keep it private for now and see if it stops

    could just be a shady app too i wouldnt reccommend using again

    Resolved!!! Just wanted to say in case someone ever has a similar situation. I had few apps for Instagram followers, likes. I deleted them all and it suddenly stopped. Seems like it was another app.

    Wow. You are living on the edge.
    Think twice about giving out any personal information including Instagram login/password to such applications.
