    Hey everyone, some of you may know me some may not but I am pretty well versed in the useage of FL. I know a lot of you have been getting banned as well as comment blocked and don't know what to do, where to turn. Instagram is cracking down again, for how long? I do not know. What I do know is what to do to stay one step ahead of them. So here is a solid guide to what you NEED to do:

    1. The first thing you need to do is take a FULL 24 hour break. If you have been running FL consistently then you will be on IG's radar due to the high number of actions your account has been doing over a period of time. All of this information is logged and kept by IG. It doesn't matter how old your account is. Think of it like this, we are outlaws and we just robbed a series of banks (using bots on Ig) We have gotten away with it time and time again, sure there were times the Fuzz(Ig) has gotten close to catching us, they have been hot on our trail but they could never catch all of us. They caught one or two here or there but the gang of us has always managed to stay one step ahead of them. But now we tried to rob one too many banks, we got cocky and the fuzz(IG) is hot on our trails. We have to hide out, lay low in a cheap motel for a while (pause FL For 24 hours).

    2. After you've laid low for a while and the news helicopters are gone and no more road blocks are up, it's time for an identity change (clear follow liker delays, comments, likes, follows, unfollows) Seriously, I know it'll hurt I know you have worked hard to perfect your setting but trust me. You need to completely reset your delays, change the minimum and maximum of follows, unfollows, likes, comments. Scale it down 50-100 actions on the bottom and top end. COMPLETELY change your comments. IDC if you have 12 or you have 150 unique comments. You need to completely change them all. Not just one word. For example- don't just change "man, this is a great picture!" To "man, this is an awesome picture!" You need to completely change things up. the Fuzz(IG) has flagged the comments and certain combinations of words from your accounts will lead them straight to your hideout!

    3. Check your accounts daily, don't run 24/7 make sure you change the times each account run every day for now. If we were playing grand theft auto think of it as having 5 stars. We have to lay low and cover our tracks until the stars go away.

    IG is cracking down but part of what makes people like us so successful is our ability to adapt, to constantly be able to pick up camp and move to a new area. Hopefully this crackdown isn't permanent but we have to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Be resilient my friends. Take my advice or don't. But just know that it's here and it's the truth. I love this forum and I love what I do. I want to help my fellow convicts (SOCIAL MEDIA GENUISES) so take precaution and don't lose accounts you have worked hard to build.

    Good Luck and hopefully I won't see you behind bars (IG BANNED)

    over and out

    OMGapparel, thank you for this post. I have been following your instagram journey the last two weeks trying to decide if follow liker is worth the money. I have came to the conclusion that it is, but I wanted to ask do you think I should purchase the bot right now? Or should I wait until ig stops being so heavy on accounts?

    Just a certain amount of time. Take a break from commenting for a day or two and follow OMGapparrel advice on commenting

    I have been facing something very strange since yesterday.. suppose I started running FL with 1000 following and 2000 followers, after running it for 24hrs and having 1500 following and 2200 followers it gets back to 1000 following and 2000 followers right where I began and this happens exactly after 24 hours. Happened twice in 2 days. Am I going crazy here?? What kind of sorcery is this!?

    good question. I would purchase now and read through the manual thoroughly and get to know the software inside and out and then check this forum periodically for updates on when they let up or if they do. Even if they don't someone will have updated settings on what's safe.

    Well written, but I strongly disagree with the 3rd point to not run 24/7. I have been running my FL for 24/7 since I first bought it and I NEVER had problems. The reason people run 24/7 and have problem is their delays. I have my delays set on no less than 70-80 seconds, for some accounts I even have 90-100 seconds. Another thing is that I NEVER comment as well.

    If you commented with IG cracking down right now you WOULD have a problem running 24/7

    Some good solid advice here. For me I've always stopped running my bot for a few days instead of 24 hours. And I think running your bot 24/7 is fine so long as your settings are super slow and be sure to change your settings every single day.

    No problems so far here.

    Thanks for the info mate . Great Advice.

    Have you faced a perm ban ever ? If yes, how did you recover ? Or did you start with a completely new account.

    I read somewhere of a dude who got his account perm banned but Insta gave him a second chance when he promised that he won't run bots on his accounts anymore. LOL :p What do you think ?

    A permanent ban is forever and very unlikely to get removed. Don't get your hopes up for that, just make sure it doesn't happen.

    The user you're talking about is VinesBeLike I think, who is a member of BHW as well. He was spamming all over IG with fake accounts posting comments promoting his main account, but IG found out about it and warned him if he does that again they'll ban his page. :)

    Hey, thanks. Yeah I completely stopped. I think I might be done using bots for this account. My account is very niche and is for a product. I've ridden this bad boy to about 4000+ followers in the last month. It's time I start gaining organic/natural followers anyways. Probably going to start paying for shoutouts now.

    I remember reading about that on here. Then a few weeks after reading it I saw his account tagged in a comment on one of my pics. Doesn't seem like he learned

    I have 100 accounts, I use Monster Socials and have a 34 second delay. I've been running 24/7 for the past 3 days to 100% success.

    Does any one know how to mass generate accounts btw?

    Commenting might not be worth it at this point... For me at least. I'm just not convinced I get enough followers from commenting for it to be worth all this hassle.

    If by generate you mean create, you can use igerslike. They support both single + multiple account creators and they also support proxies :)
