    Hey I have had 2 accounts in the last week get banned both accounts were 3-4 weeks olds and the one that got banned yesterday all i was doing was liking with a 45-80 sec delay and stop at 50 likes then restart 15 mins later why are they getting banned these arent agressive settings?

    It's obviously too agressive for you. Might work without problem for some but might end with a ban for some (new accounts, like yours). Try lowering the settings, then slowly increase it every once in a while, although don't increase too fast. Be patient and smart.

    Also, how many likes are you posting per day? You might be exceeding the daily like limit.

    I recommend you don't automate for a few days. I have one-year-old accounts that got temporarily banned from commenting (for 24 hours). And these accounts have been using the same settings for over a year now with no issues until this last couple of days. So, your best option would be to stop altogether for a few days. Maybe three? Unless new accounts are readily and easily accessible for you, then have fun experimenting.

    You were just liking and that's it? No other settings you used besides for that OP?

    Did you do anything else to the accounts to make them look sort of legit?

    I never had any problems over the past several months until the past few weeks. Every aged IG account is getting a temporary ban for commenting and/or liking. The settings always worked, but no longer. Always have had 30-35 second delays between each comment and 30-40 minutes between each run of 7 comments. I even increased it and it doesn't work. So maybe it's the amount of tags being targeted. On average, I target 3 tags per account. Little choice as I am trying to attract specific users. I had thought it was the proxies, but have had the same thing happen no matter where I buy them. Seems pretty hopeless at this point. I'm surprised there's not more members talking about this as this banning issue has been out of control for two weeks now.

    I am with you on this one. My aged acc has been running fine for the past month until a few days ago. I got temp ban from commenting. My other actions still works, though I have stopped my bots completely since than.

    Newly created accounts you mean? As in a few days old. Then you started auto-liking user posts?

    I'm glad I did decided to go with twitter. This is madness, they are killing your hard work.
    My suggestion to all of you is to not to run your bot 24/7
    Make the bot run 8-10h daily for 3-4 days a week. This will be more natural and less likely you will get banned.

    I didn't got banned,

    I did 1800-2000 likes per day, all days.

    I really think Instagram is working with sort of "quality score" and the more agressive users got out of populars (in the best case)

    So I think I'm going to slow down a lot as "wizard04" said, and not run it 24/7... or stop boting

    I don't want to loose my 45.000 followers account...

    I dont have any problem, i running 50 accounts. Follow some tips; 2 accounts for proxy only, no more, instagram have some limitations for IP.
    Dont do comments, i just do follow and like, because with comments a lot of people report. If you just like, and just follow, dont follow private user you are fine.
    My Settings running 15h a day.
    1 day 1300-1500 follow 400-600 like
    2 day 1300-1500 follow 400-600 like
    3 day 1300-1500 follow 400-600 like
    4 day 1300-1500 follow 400-600 like
    5 day 2500-3000 unfollow 400-600 like
    6 day 2500-3000 unfollow 400-600 like
    7 day Dont do nothing, after unfollow you need wait a day before start follow again

    All my accounts are OLD, and PHONE Verificated; If you do this setting you will need verifie phone.

    I am hearing from the past two days people are telling about their ban. You are doing more aggressive nad Instagram may gone strict, so my suggestion is do slowly and find the best method by yourself.
    Sometimes it may work and sometimes it can't.

    To much accounts getting banned. How did you used it ?

    Maybe they are banning bluestacks users ?
