Instagram accounts disabled - trying to find the cause

    So i've recently had two accounts disabled by instagram, one about a year old, one about 2 weeks old.

    I'm trying to figure out the reason for the ban.

    I'm using Igerslike for uploading images and followliker to bot. I've used the followliker settings as recommended by imristo.

    2-3min global delay
    250-350 follows a day
    up to 700 likes a day
    50-70 second task delay

    From what i've read here from searching, my followliker settings really shouldn't be the problem. I've been using 1 dedicated proxy per account as i've been trying to stay on the safe side.

    Is there a limit on how many photos you can post a day? I've been doing 6 per day, one every 4 hours. I've also been using the same caption for each photo, so i'm wondering if the exact same caption is my issue? The 1 year old account I posted everything manually for a year and used a copy paste caption no problem?

    I've also been using 30 hashtags per caption, could this be seen as too spammy or is this not an issue?

    I've sent in a photo with my name, account name and the code that instagram sent when I got the service email after trying to log in again, so will see if they unblock my accounts.

    Tips/advice would be appreciated!

    Same caption can be the reason but not sure, better to spin the caption to be on the safe side :) I even spin the hastags to avoid keeping them all same.

    So a bit of an update with this..

    I did the whole photo with name and username email to Instagram to unlock both of my accounts. So far I heard back about one and they unlocked it and I regained access.

    I logged back in to see if anything weird had happened which might have caused me to get banned. I was using Igerslike to upload photos, and the last two that it had posted on my account were NOT what I had uploaded to Igerslike. They weren't related to my niche in the slightest. I've just checked my Igerslike account again to make sure it wasn't some bogus error on my part but the photos that were uploaded weren't there.

    So it looks like Igerslike has somehow uploaded the wrong photos. If this has happened to me I wouldn't be surprised if it's happened to other accounts, and if they were all the same photos then we would have been banned for spamming..

    I don't know if this was a targeted hack from someone who gained access to Igerslike's uploader or just a glitch. I'll find out when I get my other account back if it uploaded the same photos as the first one..

    Hey mate,

    The same thing happened to my accounts as well (you posted on my thread a few days ago). At this point, I'm 100% certain that the 6-7 instagram accounts that I got banned were as a result of igerslike. I was also in your same position and ONLY uploaded images using igerslike. Most accounts were banned within 48hrs of using igerslike to upload images.

    I have also had photos that were not mine uploaded to my account, I'm pretty sure this is a common issue with igerslike users - a lot of other people have commented the same thing happening to them.

    My advice is to use Followliker to schedule image uploads as well, it's even easier to upload images than igerslike! There is NO size requirement of 640x640 to upload using FollowLiker.

    Why dont you just use Massplanner? I know it a monthly payment and that is a downside - but the software is just the best you can get for botting. Especially with the repost feature, you can literally be super up-to-date with content, credit people properly - have awesome captions (made by people you take photos from) and add your own tags if you wish. Complete auto-pilot!

    Instagram detected you two are the same user, so what's your problem.

    So you're aggressively spamming like crazy, and you wonder why your accounts are getting banned ?


    Try turning your settings down a lot.

    you call those aggressive settings? you'd probably get an heart attack if you saw some other user's settings here.

    don't talk bullshit, his settings are fine and by no means are they aggressive.

    Did you even read OP's post? Those are extremely basic and low settings, nothing wrong with them.

    If you believe those are aggressive then I imagine you doing 10-20 follow/day , 5likes/day and 2posts/week ?

    Best Regards,
