    I don't know why always i create the threads about these topics because i see like 90% of all people are having these problems right now. Do you only need tips when you see it's running good for someone or why isn't nobdy posting about this kind of stuff (same as the email verification loop).
    So im adding new accounts (1 account per proxy) all unique bio and unique profile picture let them rest for 2 days and after 10 follows they get a temp follow block for about 3 days, after 3 days i let them rest for 1 day and after 10 follows i get temp blocked again ! What could be the reason ?

    Hey i got the same problem once at the very beginning of my account. I wasn't even using a bot!

    The Key here is the delay between each follow. If it's too fast you'll get a temporary ban.

    I wrote about this a few times. It is a new thing Instagram threw at us poor marketers :)

    I do not know exact reason for this ban, although I suspect on proxies and accounts, or maybe a combination of few factors, who knows...

    3 of my accounts were affected. First I got a follow ban for 3 days, then another 3 days. Yesterday, ban was lifted and all 3 started following again. I reduced total numbers of follows, increased time between follows, slowed down everything as if they were new accounts. We will see what happens next. I would like to mention that all accounts were liking normally all the time. If I get another follow block I will use these accounts to test direct messaging or something similar...
