    Hey guys im currently running my first IG account. Ive been posting 2-3 pics a day and following people manually about 50-75 per hour on average and sometimes like pictures. Just now I got my first password reset after posting a pic. Why did I get this and what can I do to prevent this from happening again? I dont want to lose my account. Thanks!

    UPDATE: today i got a phone verification when i opened the app and another password reset. I barely followed any one since yesterday, maybe 100 follows/unfollows in one day. Ive only been going on the account on my home wifi and 4g LTE since yesterday. Any advice? Should i just stop using the account for a few days or what?

    Seems like you've hit the IG follow or like limit. Be less active.
    There are people here who lost accounts with 130K followers, that hurts.

    I just lost an account an hour back. 1 week old account 500+ followers, it asked to reverify phone, I changed to a new number and after putting in the verification code I got the golden quote "
    The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed.

    In your case it seems that you're not hitting a follow or like limit. You're probably making too much activity overall. More than a normal human does. Try to follow/like less per hour and stretch your activity across the day.

    okay I'm getting about 700-900 likes per photo so it's a decently engaged page. I'll lower my follow/unfollow to maybe 50 per every 2 hrs instead of every hour and see how that goes. How many times can the password reset happen before a ban or no one really knows?

    Wouldn't we all like to know that. It's all a guessing game.

    Can't say. Too much variables as to why IG reset password. My guess is that you used a different ip. Stick to same ip all the time.

    700-900 likes on a 32.9K page? Engagement seems very low on that page you are botting on. Looks like you have around 2.13% - 2.74% (Estimate since I don't know your page) engagement.

    I dont bot at all, everything following and unfollowing is manual.

    UPDATE: today i got a phone verification when i opened the app and another password reset. I barely followed any one since yesterday, maybe 100 follows/unfollows in one day. Ive only been going on the account on my home wifi and 4g LTE since yesterday. Any advice? Should i just stop using the account for a few days or what?

    Yes, stop using the acc for a few days. Longer the better. IG must have flagged your acc for doing something they didn't like.

    This is a good example oF IG not caring if you bot or not.
