    I am looking to get over the 7,500 bypass limitation on instagram.

    I am a developer but would want someone who knows about the issue more as I have heard a few people here know how it's done.

    are you sure it's not a myth? You're a developer so you should know that when you set a limit in the backed it's for everyone and it's not something that some people can just bypass unless Ig does that for them personally...

    The global rate limit that starts at 5000 requests per hour changes for each user. Not everything in the backend is set in stone.

    I guess you are talking about the API rate limiting in a whole. There are seperate rate limits for seperate endpoints, and there are account based limits as well.

    Follow limit is something like an account based limitation as far as I know, and is pretty much set in stone.

    Multiple Access tokens can be made to work together to bypass some sort of GET requests, But following is both account wise limited, and needs the accounts' access token, so using multiple access tokens isnt going to help either.

    Not 100% sure though.

    I think you missed the question a little he is talking about the 7500 limitation which is the limitation for how many followes an account can have which from what I know is not avoidable no matter what...

    I did understand the question about the 7500 limit and yes that is the same for everybody unless the account was grandfathered in, I was just replying to your comment that the backend limits had to be the same for every user which isn't the case at IG.

    Nothing looks worse than have 7.5k followings....nothing.
