    This shit is killing me..

    "There is a problem with this link
    The link you are trying to open redirects http://website.com and can be malicious.
    Do not open links that come only from reliable sources. Find out more"

    am I the single one with this issue? I can not access the websites from my bio

    Yea, I can confirm this. Just noticed this referrer in my tracking system:
    http://l.instagram.com/?e=ATPY-ENCODED57CHARSXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX&u=http%3A%2F%2FYOURURL.COM%2FXXX

    Which leads to this screen:

    Does this happen to all links including tubmlr, blogger or does this just happen to your domains?

    Just opened a custom domain page & I see that it redirect you to an Instagram link first & then redirects your to your domain, however I did not see this message. This could be due to age, as this is actually a blackhat niche.

    Just check if they are reported. Cause while spamming it may happen

    Yea, we're in the same boat. Can't see the message either. But I see some traffic redirected from IG. I'm not sure it's the same issue as OP. Because my visitors seems to reach my websites..

    Are Instagram going the Tumblr way?

    Seems like top Social Media websites are going completely on the referrer link stuff.

    I am getting the "malicious" page but only on my desktop computer, on my iPhone the link is working but I have noticed a 1/2 Traffic decrease over the last two days... Not sure if this is correlated to each other or not...

    In my opinion, I think we should all take advantage of the IG game while we can. You have to remember that facebook owns IG now. Facebook almost forces people to pay to play when it comes to marketing and links. I suspect IG will be taking the same route before long. I just hope they stick with chronological order posts.

    God! The method cannot die, it's impossible! We know 2 things.

    1. Instagram now asks users if they really want to proceed to a certain website. This will decrease the traffic without doubt, but is it really that dramatic? Users will get used to this pretty fast, after all it's just telling them that they are going to an external website.

    2. This thing does not appear all the time, which means we can find a trick around this. I guess traffic will decrease by max. of maybe 25% at the start of this thing and after 1-3 months it'll get better.

    It's not like back then when facebook decreased fanpage reach from 100% to 5%... and even back then after this update people banked like crazy.

    My tip would be, to stop focusing 100% on spammy accounts that only serve one purpose. Go ahead, buy a good bot, start building serious accounts in all kinds of niches, it takes perhaps 30 minutes to setup an account and fully automate it for the next 365 days. You can still insert you CPA shit in the bio and once it gets to a decent size you can go ahead and monetize it with shoutouts.

    just checked the links on several giveaway accounts and all of them opened normally, however they were aged accounts so i couldn't test with new accounts, and the links on my accounts also open normally, i will keep checking and report here if i find anything.

    The only thing that could really terminate cpa methods or otherwiswe in ig is if they remove the webpage link altogether

    Works fine this side your probably using links that are either

    1. shortened
    2. been reported
    3. link to adult content

    or

    4. Just rubbish content that is of new use to any IG user.

    Most likely a new algorithm from a list. Wouldn't be surprised if they took other databases into consideration to basically block the sites quicker. (probably not though, but there will come a day).

    I like that they are doing this weeds out a lot of the crap on IG of all the kids whining their "easy cash" methods don't work. Learn to adapt. There will always be a huge amount of cash to be made from social media just learn how to bend the rules till it stops working then try something else.

    There will definitely be a way around this. Just comes with time. People will adapt. New solutions will be found.

    Not sure why people here still don't understand this. IG doesn't roll out changes to everybody all at once.

    2 things i found out:

    1. You will be banned from following and if you open link in app, it will show "malicious link" warning.
    2. Its not particular domain extension.

    Now hypothesis:

    1. I had 8 domains banned out of 160 of different ages and one thing common among them was niche. But since ~60% accounts are in same niche as those and still following/working same as before. So its maybe something in website.

    Or its simple reporting. Once you are reported, your domain will be banned.

    Fix?
    Only thing i can think of is dynamic url.
