    As the title. I've been un-following around 500 a day via the instagram app just speed clicking, but I found a good application called "Cleaner" on iOS that you just let it unfollow.

    I typically set it to 10 unfollows per minute and just let it go, cleaning out a few hundred accounts. The thing that is concerning though is Instagram banning botting accounts.

    I have no intention to bot to like, post, follow or anything else. Just trying to avoid having to mass unfollow accounts so frequently.

    What typically happens if they flag you for too frequent unfollowing? Does the account get deleted permanently or do they just disable it for 24 hours?

    Thanks for any help.

    i would change your password immediately and delete the app.

    Then I would research Instagress, Followliker, and MassPlanner, or stick to manually unfollowing since you seem to only have a single account.

    Thanks for the tip. Are iOS apps like that generally untrustworthy? Even highly rated ones? I'm very new to this stuff :)

    I would stay away from any type of app of that nature and stick to what's known and trusted in this community. Rating doesn't mean much when you can buy reviews & stars!

    Awesome, thanks for the tip! I only just registered here so I'll have a read around, I followed your advice of deleting the app + changing my PW :)

    I would say 500-1000 per day following. I typically try and not hit the IG limits.

    Just a disclaimer, if I sound like I have no idea what I'm doing its accurate, I'm only very new to this and have 5000 followers, just getting the feel of it. I've been growing the account around 100-150 a day with this method of following/unfollowing.
