    just don't follow/unfollow too many people at once

    I think the limit 160 follows or unfollows per hour

    You should be fine doing it manually as it will let you know once you've reached the limit in the app.

    Using a bot, this varies from account to account. Some people are following 1k a day, some are getting banned following <500. There are many factors. Look up some example settings here in the forum. Start slow and gradually increase to a point your comfortable with.

    My experience shows that I was able to follow only up to 60 people per hour to not get following limit. When I followed over 60 people per hour it automatically restricted my account from following for 1 hour.

    Could u share the follow/unfollow setting in fl that got banned ?
    For the unfollowing limit, i think it around 100 user / hour. So make sure that ur unfollowing calculation not exceed unfollow 100 people in 1 hour.

    From what i notice, nowadays many people got banned when using fl, so for ur own secure i suggest lay low for a while and play safe.

    Can anyone explain what the phone verification status in instagram actually means? If a code is not sent, is it because the number isnt entered correctly? Does it mean I cant get use the account again?

    It depends.. if a number is blocked I think they'll respond with an error. If you type your number and don't get a code, it could be a problem with your provider or Instagram, happened to me before, it fixed itself a few hours after and I was able to receive the code from IG.

    Does FL actually realize if you're followbanned? i guess ive got a followban recently on one of my accounts but FL continued with "follow success" etc. Which could have made the ban longer... I actually thought it would realize a ban. Isnt that what the status box is for?

    I think i may have used more than 5 accounts from my one IP. Would that get my newer accounts blocked? They are stuck in phone verification & as I said, im not getting the code sent to me. Hopefully I can fix this, but if not could I set up a few more new accounts from a different IP the access them through a proxy with FL? Im a bit new to FL & proxies so im still figuring it all out... any advice greatly appreciated! Thanks...
