    They did not change anything. With new accounts you are getting locked when you follow around 70 users and you need to unlock the account by adding a phone number or if they ask for a password reset, then you can do the password reset via email or phone. After you did this, you can follow for another day, you'll be locked again and you need to re-verify the account using the linked phone number. The same thing will happen on the next day. After you unlocked the account for the 3rd time (so when you did 1 password reset and 2 phone verifications), they will leave you alone and you can follow without getting locked. This is the case with new accounts for a couple of months now.

    thanks for the reply, i know about the phone verifcation, i get them a lot whenever i made new account but the weird thing is they didnt lock my account and ask me to verify phone or anything they just banned me from following this time.

    Are you sure? Have you tried logging out and logging back in, although the verification prompt should come up while logged in, so maybe that's not it.
