    I have about 10 instragram accounts all in the same niche and they all have original content created for them. I haven't adjusted the FL settings in like 2 months and have had them running on auto pilot. Very minimal settings, 300-400 likes a day with 200-240 delays and 900-1000 likes a day with 20-25 second delays. T.

    2 of them out of no where have been banned for violating terms of instagram. Don't know how, or why. They were both 6 months old and had 8-10k followers. Only thing I can think of to be honest, is that IGerslike posted a bunch of different photos of my accounts and mixed match them. I was also getting photos from other accounts posted onto mine. Don't know if those raised red flags or not.

    Anyways, just wanted to give some people a heads up this was happening. For the moment I quit running my bots until I do some more research.

    Uh oh, not good. I suppose these 10 accounts have proxies?

    Aww not good at all. I don't think it's random though.. there must be some kind of trigger?

    I agree. Something must have triggered it. And I'm sure it's not the bot. :D

    I feel ya man :(

    I had two accounts banned recently as well, one account was 48hrs old and was banned less than 12 hrs after botting (500-600follow), the second account was banned after 36 hours of botting (one dayof 500-600 and then switched to 200-300 after my ban), both accounts were completely new. I was also using igerslike to schedule posts for these accounts.

    1000 likes may have done it .. seems a little much and not natural.

    Weird, I made a new account just to test it and tried botting it right away.

    400 - 600 follow/unfollow and 800 - 1000 likes per day. Scheduled 500++ photos on FL to post 3-4 times a day, but I still login to this account everyday and sometimes I post using my phone too. Not even using proxies. Account is 3 weeks old now.

    900-1000 likes with 20-25 s delay, ugh. 20-25 is so easily spotted as automation.

    people need to understand that even low settings might get you banned, everything that seems unusual and spotted as automation get's you banned.

    also, most people don't share the whole settings here.

    it's not only about how many likes per day you do, it's also about how many likes per HOUR and what DELAY you have.

    When sharing settings share:


    • global automation time
    • follow/like limit
    • daily follow/like limit
    • delay follow/like

    it's not only about one settings, everything counts.

    just as a quick reminder for people who always think their settings are safe and then they end up doing 500 likes straight away with 20-25 s, sorry, but no wonder you get banned that way.

    just my take on this.

    I do 60-90 seconds follow delay and 10-25 seconds like delay. I try to change this every week. Hopefully the account won't get banned.
