    I?ve been using followliker liker for a while now and have done okay with it. I?ve had a few temporary bans during their testing last year. These were all temporary. I?m trying to figure out what level their banning goes to, what activities constitute a temporary ban and what constitute a permanent ban and how I avoid it?

    Can I get a permanent ban from just unfollowing?

    If you get a permanent ban is there any way to get un-banned?

    If I got a temporary ban from unfollowing then I would adjust my setting accordingly, but I?d be very upset if I got a permanent ban that was irreversible.Instagram temporary vs permanent bans?

    Temporary bans usually happen when you're pushing the limits and you're going too fast on some actions.

    Permanant bans happen when IG discovers unusual behavior which is against their TOS.

    If you're using a bot, you will always risk getting permanently banned and I believe many temporary blocks might flag your account, too. Which human would keep going when IG has already temp. blocked you for so many times?

    If you're botting and you got temporary banned, be grateful for it and adjust your settings. If you got permanently banned, well that's life, you've probably did every possible thing the wrong way.

    best thing, stay under the radar, don't push limits, keep it slow, but steady and you won't have to worry about those things.

    If you love taking risks, do it, but don't cry afterwards.

    Thanks envisioned. Sage advice.

    The only bans I've ever had was last year when they changed their settings for a few weeks. Even then I only had a two I think.

    don't worry about them then, might happen from time to time when they introduce some new limits. adjustment is the key once you get a warning.
