    Whats your limit? I going to great huge spintax of comment relevant to niche, but I want to know your upper/safe limits when you doing comments.

    Whats your hourly/daily limits of commenting and do you do direct messages also?

    I want to use commenting after following user. Of course im not going to comment all the users I follow, but I was thinking that I comment every tenth user - following 500 and commenting 50 per day for example. Do this getting me into trouble?

    Really appreciate your answers.

    These kind of things need to be "warmed-up" for some time before you reach full potential. I tested these limits about 2 months ago, but maybe they still are viable to some extent.

    Assume the account is one month old. You never want to do these type of actions on a brand new account.

    Week 1:
    Follow: 200
    Unfollow: 200
    DM: 50
    Comment: 25

    Week 2:
    Follow: 300
    Unfollow: 300
    DM: 75
    Comment: 40

    Week 3:
    Follow: 400
    Unfollow: 400
    DM: 100
    Comment: 50

    Week 4:
    Follow: 500
    Unfollow: 500
    DM: 150~
    Comment: 60~

    Remember to have high quality comments and direct messages. Remember, this is just an example. I have one of my accounts that can get 70 comments in a day while following 700 people, unfollowing 400, and liking 800 posts. Some people also have claims on this forum of still being able to follow X,XXX amount of people and XXX amount of comments per day. It all depends as Instagram has different tolerances for different accounts.

    This all being said, you should be fine following 500 and commenting 50 as long as you warmed up the accounts enough and you aren't posting straight-up spam.

    Also remember to try and post original content to your Instagram account. Instagram has a hard time suspending accounts if their content is 100% unique.

    Great tips, thinking of getting into instagram. This'll help prevent the ban hammer I hope. When they close one of your accounts, is there a chance for recovery or is it perm?

    Is the DM to new followers only? So you only DM them the once?

    Aren't those settings a bit low? I have a weeks old account and follow up to 850 like up to 1200 and post 6 pics a day. Haven't had any temp ban yet. Should I decrease my settings?

    Also with a 2 month Account: Follow: 750 Like: 1500 no problems yet.

    Having an IG account I have never received a DM from anyone besides the guys I know in person. What is the way of using DM for maintaining an account? Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Hi OP. Great post.
    I'm assuming those limits are daily limits?

    changing md5 checksums is enough to make instagram think photos are unique right?

    Just a question, are these weekly limits or daily?

    I'm quite new to instagram botting but I have some accounts running after warming them up with around 50-80 follows a day. When they are warmed up I do max 200 follows with 100 unfollows, but Im still playing around though. Seems like I can adjust these number up on warmed accounts?
