    i could not follow from IG app, so i did all my foolowing through crowdfire.
    now i cannot follow/unfollow more than 60 at a time.
    how am i going to manage an IG page now? i cannot follow/unfollow some one, wait 1 minute, and come back to do it again. that's bots business.

    Instagram API limits unfollows for these apps. Download multiple of them and when it tell notifications that you have reached your limits, simply switch to the other one :)

    yes, but other apps have even lower limit. e.g., trackgram's limit is only 20!

    Crowdfire, Instafollow. I think Crowdfire has a 40 users limit, try that also.

    I don't think that instagram limits following/unfollow through these apps.
    Try follow or unfollow on instagram itself, the limit is 60 per hour too.
    Instagram set that limit for everyone.

    No, that's not correct. i have unfollowed more than 700 people under an hour on the Official insta app and nothing happened.

    And for OP, use InstaFollow .. i think it doesn't have any limit or even if it has then it's more than a few hundreds i guess because i used to use it. try it.

    here is the link https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.innovatty.instafollow&hl=en

    Unfollowed ~2500 people trough IG official app in the same day on a 3 years old account that I hadn't touch for 2 years.

    Everything went fine.

    (did this around 3 months ago).

    Best Regards,
    Jaymien.

    Maybe you are using an aged account too, or have done that weeks/months ago, or it was some kind of luck that instagrams algo. didnt catch you up, because i unfollowed 3 days ago on the official app 250 users in 5min manually, and got temp-blocked. My account is an 2 years high active account.

    Age counts a lot on a Instagram acc. So please do not spread misinformation that there is no problem in unfollowing and following many people.

    To all the people who quoted me above:

    No, this is not misinformation. i regularly do this, in fact i have done it today as well, unfollowed almost 600 in like 25 mins and i wasn't temp blocked. some time i do get a temp block if i go too fast but that's not often. My accounts are not older than 2-4 months and i manage them manually. they've never seen a bot so that might also be a factor to consider.

    jesus, are you human? unfollowing 700 on IG app is unthinkable already to me. how do you do 2500?
    it's 2 taps per unfollow!

    and yes, i have tried IG app, and 3rd party apps. evidently everybody has different limits.
    my account is over 4 months old too, btw.

    Instagram is really strict especially if the account is fresh. You can push hard though with older accounts.

    there are too many variables to consider, age, delays, manuals/bots, activity/ private user pendings / what else?

    When you setup a account you follow only for months but then you unfollow but i unfollow at the rate i followed and that 300 over 24hr period.

    once all the unfolling done then you only send
    three messages in a day morning , day , night.

    there no rush you need to tressure your list
    i even do give aways weekends just to encourge users to go to
    my links.

    once you learn to interact with your followers, you get grate stats,
    i mean huge traffic, and eventually they work out what your doing
    for a living, and fill in survays just to help you succeed .

    Like i say you scatch there back there scatch yours ....
