Been running Followliker on a 6 month old account ~
New to automation but I feel like my settings are pretty slow and somewhat human like and I’m still getting temp bans.

Settings are as follows:

- only follow/unfollowing
- Scrape user limit: 40
Follow limit: 3-5
Daily Follow Limit: 10-15
Delay follow: 41-51 seconds

Filters:
- Follow users who have 0-500 followings
- Don’t follow followers

*Then I have unfollow settings almost the same but slightly more to compensate and set to unfollow after 2 days*

I have the bot running 24/7

Problem is I can’t get past the first day without getting a temp ban. Really not trying to get an API ban...Please let me know if you see any flaws in my setup. Maybe it’s just Followliker itself? I noticed this somewhat primitive program doesn’t even allow you to randomize timing and you are forced to use their weak time setup that has one setting called “automation timing” so I just have it running 24/7 12am-12am.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Lol 41 to 51 seconds
Follow limit 3 to 5

Looks like you’ll get temp ban quick

Should let your account rest for 3 days and try this

20 to 51 sec
1 to 11 follows

No more than 20 each hour

If blocked, suspend account for 12 to 24 hours

Niceee.

So set ‘follow limit’ to 1-11 and keep ‘daily follow limit’ at what I had it at, 10-15?

Could you also explain what you mean by 20 each hour?

It seems like once Instagram flags suspicious behaviour, your account is flagged forever and Instagram will be more cautious and temp ban you more frequently.

Edit: This comes from a fact that with same settings, new accounts are not getting temp banned while existing accounts (that were temp banned before) are.

That’s trash. IG really is cracking down lately. I haven’t tried the 4G mobile proxy + browser encoding method yet though, which I’ve heard is working really well for some people right now. It’s pricy but since IG is detecting API like crazy from the bots looks like it is one of the few options left. I just hope it cools down because I’m not really trying to spend $100 a month for 1 mobile proxy lol.

No more than 20 follows an hour. I don’t think follow liker has this option

So set ‘follow limit’ to 1-11 and keep ‘daily follow limit’ 1 to 21 go up 3 to 6 every day. Capped at 170

Also only i wouldn’t run it every day. Maybe 3 to 4 times a week. Randomize the start and end time. Never repetitively

You’ll get flagged if you start at 9am everyday and the last action at 9pm.
