    This only happened in the past coupld of weeks.

    do you have any idea how in the world instagram is now detecting that I am running via python? i cant understand it because when I manully open android the same device instagram works using the same proxy but when I open it via python and dont even click any buttons in instagram! i only open a device with python somehow insta can detect it and it blocks all activity on ig

    some extreme technology they have implemented. i just open it with python then manually click in insta like normal and it already knows i am using it thru python an has blocked activity.

    it isnt a phone lockedout or anything like that. I can go into my profile but all pages are blank and it says feed could not update.

    If I was clicking with the bot I could understand they could detect it but how when I am not even doing any interaction. It isnt because of proxies because if i load the emulator instance manual with the same proxy then IG works as normal.

    I cant think how they can know what I am using because I made the bot myself and it is not a well known footprint of the tools I use.

    Opening with python is too vague. Can you describe exactly what you're doing and how you're doing it. Also its really easy to use IG with python, you just need to simulate a phone with it.

    How can it be user agent when I said it works normally when I open it manually; all the settings are the same except I open it with both and make a break point right after load.

    expl.
    - you use browser interaction or not ? i mean like python + selenium.
    - Are you already add or change user-agent ? anti ddos and bot company will detect it.
    - and others..

    fire up wireshark or your favorite network sniffer and make sure the bot/emulator is sending all the right headers and what not.
