    I don't mind unfollowing them at a later point.. but I can't necessarily remember every private user if they don't accept my follow.

    Should I just avoid following private users altogether?

    I personally avoid following private users, unfollowing is tricky and also, if you forget to do it so, you get less amount people to follow later.

    unfollowing private users is different from unfollowing public users? using software like FL.

    From my testing (1 or 2 accounts), I followed a bunch of private profiles.

    After a month or so, I decided to monetize my account using cpa or physical products. To my surprise, my conversion rate was a lot higher than public profiles. Seems like these guys don't get spammed that much, lol.

    Followers for Instagram - Followers / Unfollowers by Dashed Space LLC is the iOS app that I use to easily track and unfollow those who don't follow me back. Works just as well for private as well as public.
