    Hey guys,

    So IG has some new unfollow limitations - They are temp blocking people going to fast, but this is new as of this morning. I'm going to do some testing today to find out what exactly they are, and if anyone else has some insights then post em here so we can figure it out :)

    Thanks!

    Didn't read it anywhere, but I noticed this happening to my IG accounts 2 days ago too...

    And they are aged IG accounts (4months old and 7months old IG accounts with over 50k followers both)

    Didn't read it anywhere - I run about 1000 accounts and the majority are unfollowing atm. Yes it is happening to accounts of all ages, not just new ones.

    Same thing happened to me, running about 20 accounts, some are following / unfollowing.
    Following seems to still be running but all my unfollowing accounts, the tasks have stopped and saying something about a temp ban

    Yep, I have made about 400 unfollows today and also got temp banned. Looks like unfollowing will take a lot more time in future

    The unfollow limit will certainly go down more and more. Tweak your setting and test

    I've set limits as following:
    unfollow limit: 1-100
    unfollow delay: 60-90

    Will update if any of the blocks come up
