    Is there a penalty for mass unfollowing on instagram? Like say if I unfollow 7,000 in a day? I know there is a penalty and possible ban for mass FOLLOWING, but I was wondering if it was the same for unfollowing?

    you cant unfollow 7k a day have a limit 600 a day. If you unfollow on finger on cellphone you can do a little more, but if you do it on bot you will have problem, try start low

    andrexdx is wrong so don't listen to him. There are many claims about the unfollow limit, but the majority of them linger between 450-750. I have heard of unfollowing 1,000 a day although, if you do it repeatedly, you will get banned. If you'd like to stay safe, anywhere between 450-600 has worked well for me.

    I haven't mass followed/ unfollowed in a while but around 3-4 months ago I was unfollowing approximately 50/5mins and around 2-3k per day with no repercussions

    I don't unfollow anymore but when I did, it got my account banned. Was unfollowing anywhere between 100-200+ a day.

    Although, there are some people who were able to unfollow 300+ a day and they never got banned.

    Banned for unfollowing 200-300 a day? That's hard for me to believe. Sure u weren't doing other shady activity?

    I got banned twice for unfollowing around 130 a day. Same settings as for following. Dunno if i have to re-adjust the max limit or the other settings.
