    I read somewhere that reporting it as being "hacked" can get IG to enable it again,
    Anyone had any success ? Other ideas?
    I was using a bot - FL, with 700 likes and following(Or unfollowing) per day.

    you got banned with 700 likes and 700 followings a day? unbelievable, you must have done something incredibly wrong. Pretty sure you had the wrong settings, especially delays.

    when logging in you can choose to contact Instagram. Do it, you'll have to send a picture of you holding a paper with your name and number on it. If you're lucky enough, they'll unblock you, depends on what you've been banned for.

    I would go with "accounts being hacked" FIRST and then picture if needed.

    Always report as being hacked. There are many ways to hack and they (IG) know it.

    One addition: it is very likely that FL is to blame. They (FL developers) did something terribly wrong, but do not admit. Instagram has a way to detect FL botting patterns.

    Terribly wrong, you can't blame a bot for getting your account banned..
    It is 100% your fault, no matter what. When you use a bot, you are agreeing to take the risk of getting banned. Also it could very well be settings were not good, i see many people who think they use "good settings" when it's totally wrong

    I have been watching your replies. You don't know what you are saying.

    You don't even own a Follow Liker license and yet you always claim things you know nothing about. Follow Liker is not the problem. Please get your facts right.

    OP, Try the suggestions given to see if you can get the account back.

    I bet he's just too scared to use it.

    Nothing's wrong with FL - 99.99% of the time it is the user's fault. FL is nothing but a tool to make your daily work easier, it's up to the individual to stay under the radar.



    @OP, was your account pretty new or aged? I've been running @ 1800 follows per day for a long time on one of my aged accounts and so far not even a temp ban.

    I bet you've just got free time to chat, because incorrectly coded bots get accounts banned all the time.

    Confession, I have't been watching your replies.

    Since you're an FL maker, you should have implemented automatic "recommended settings" detection for each individual account months ago, becase a technology behind is clear. No need to "agree and take the risk".


    @OP: 700 likes and follows a day with normal delays on a 70K account is nothing. It is your bot. Review threads a few weeks ago when crouds were complaining about password resets on FL. My accounts were growing as usual these days.

    Whoaaa, that blows. HARD. Hope you can get it back soon enough.

    With 70k followers I would take your acct off the bot if you get it back. Organic growth should be enough.

    Do you even own a FL license?
    If not, then you have no right to "assume" it's to blame for bans.
    Bots aren't the reason for bans, the person using it incorrectly is.

    I like the replies on this thread.
    And I have to agree... blaming a bot is just half of a problem, we have to try and test the settings and try to emulate the natural behaviour.
    No bot is perfect, so I've never seen a perfect person.

    I have that account for quite some time, was very carefull. I actually not sure its because of the bot but because of the content (weed niche). im running 2 other much smaller accounts with same settings for the same time and they run flawless.
    Anyway, update: IG replied my email with:
    What would you suggest me to do now? reply the email or report hacked again ?

    it seems your account has been banned because of your content, rather than because of you botting.
