    was using a bot, liking at 1/second approximately with errors slowing it down, for about almost 20 hours with a few hrs of break in between. used multiple clients (like web, stati, etc)

    wat settings are safe for instagram liking?

    1 photo every 3 seconds over 3 accounts (stati, websta..) left mine going for days at a time and it's always been fine.

    Using different clients won't get you banned = myth. The rate limit will still be counted if you're using 1 account.

    Done are the days you can do likes every second. Increase the time interval between likes to make 30-60 likes / hour. If you need to scale this up then use a multithreaded bot with multiple accounts.

    what is multithreading? my bot had 2-3 threads but i was not sure what that meant

    also, if im trying to grow one account, why would i use multiple accounts? i must be missing something

    Multithreading is the ability of a program to manage its use by more than one account at a time and to even manage multiple requests by the same user without having to have multiple copies of the programming running in the computer.

    Just think of it as a web browser. Multiple browsers running at the same time. More threads = faster execution time for tasks.

    You will have to find someone who actually use Instaget for instructions. I use a different bot.

    Don't just like, stop and do some other human actions too, comments, picture upload and so on.

    Im running instaget pro twice on my PC, each with 12 clients checked. Delay set at 5-6 seconds. Two weeks on and it is still running. Probably make around 20,000+ likes a day.

    if I'm reading correctly. you had the delay set to 1second? that is the reason for your ban.

    Highly unnatural over a 20 hour period - not humanly possible therefore you got served.

    *knocks on wood* I've been using a 1 second delay for months upon months and my account has 95K followers. But then again, my account is over a year old so maybe it's just with newer accounts.

    Are you hitting the pop page naturally now? And how many likes do you normally get on a picture? I'm in your ballpark with the amount of followers, and just wanted to compare!

    Do you have any reviews left for your bot Tompots? It sounds interesting.

    Before instagram changed how easy it was to make the pop page, I'd get on every picture. Ever since then I've only made it once.. And it depends on the picture, my top picture has 10-11K likes and my least probably has 1000 likes.
