    Same thing here, I have loads of fake instagram accounts following me. You can try to log in on instagram in your browser and revoke access from all the things you authorized. To get rid of them, manually go through every fake account and block each one of them. It's probably a lot of work.

    Sorry to tell you that Instagram is Spam heaven. you're going to have a hell of a time trimming the fake/bots from the genuine article. Unless you set your profile to private, but then marketing becomes all the more challenging.

    Because they usually follow by tag so if you have a pic hashtagged and they use that tag to scrape you will be followed with their accounts.

    My account has almost 72k followers, majority of that are spam, even liking pictures based on hashtags with bots can make them follow you, instagram captchas have started to stop them but that makes legitimate marketing work all the harder,
