    Can we see your data? So far you've made a lot of claims about the inner-workings of Instagram's anti-spam algorithm, but you haven't provided any evidence of it. You were already asked once for evidence by another user and all you did was respond with a website that links to a login panel.

    This all seems really suspect as I've likewise tested this myself and am almost certain that shadow-banning doesn't exist on Instagram photos. It definitely exists on comments, but I've done almost all the of things you said are supposed to trigger a shadow ban (on multiple different accounts) without anything negative happening comparatively.

    Shadowban is real I can tell you that, got shadowbanned a few times and bought shadowbanned accounts back when I thought it didn't exist hehe. In my case I think it came from overposting (20 per day) and in another case using the same hashtags over and over. In any case it's quite random.

    But yea I agree all this insider info is very suspect.

    Does it go away or is there a way to get rid of it? Does it have cool off algorithm (like if you stop spamming it'll go away)?

    A penalty for using hashtags? Wtf..

    I use the same 30 relevent tags daily when posting, then boost likes to rank. I'm assuming the shadowban isn't that serious so I will continue the deeds, for now at least.

    Interesting feature if this is true, wouldn't be surprised with all the updates and cracking down on bots they've been doing lately. Reddit has being using the shadowban for some time now and it's really effective for them.

    It's not just using hashtags is using and ranking on the SAME hashtags every time that got me shadowbanned. And as I said it's quite random, I have an account that I literally rape and never got shadowbanned.

    For those who wonder if it goes away, I stopped all actions for 2 weeks and posted only once a day and it went away :). But I have another account that's still shadowbanned that I disabled just in case it get fixed one day but I have low hopes.

    And I'm just talking about my experience, haven't got any "IG plug" or what !

    Hhhhmm. This topic is very interesting! But I would like to know if all this your explanation means everything about Instagram can't be automated again. That's we need to do things manually, because I can't just understand all this shadowban stuff.

    how do you know for sure if you have been shadow banned or not?

    what is the difference between shadow ban and getting the Phone Verification notification?

    There are various ways to check ShadowBan. The difference between these locks immediately visible. When checking the phone, there's nothing you can do until it is confirmed, and when ShadowBan you can use Instagram and don't understand anything you are banned.

    ShadowBan is maybe true Cuz I think I got shadowbanned on the account I was using.
    I believe Instagram knows what's happening inside the system that people are spamming and botting.
    No warning or anything you just get ghosted.

    It just feels like YouTube comment with link. You can see it but others can't.
