    I manually follow/unfollow. Usually I unfollow 500 everyday and it is fine. But today I only unfollowed 300 and I had captcha. Can I keep unfollowing after 1 hour? Or should I wait till tomorrow?

    Just continue. I unfollow ~1.5k a day with a lot of captchas for about a month now.

    Captchas are okay. Start shitting yourself when you get 24hr bans.

    Captchas are okay?! I thought you should wait 24-48 hours after getting one, is this still the case?

    Those are for temp bans. In your case, I would slow it down for awhile before going back to your original setting.

    Just solve them or buy captcha credits if you are using a bot. Slow it down for a few days as well.

    Same here, happened to me on multiple accounts yesterday. Keeping the unfollow between 300 and 400 today to see if the limit is THAT low atm.

    Oldest account is over 3 years, youngest account is about 2-3 weeks old. We'll see...

    This morning, I did not even do anything. I just woke up and checked out my ig. But I got twice captchas simply by logging in my acc. That's really strange and make me very upset.

    They have millions of users at any given time. They can't monitor every one.

    When you got a captcha, you tripped a wire and now you're not 1 in a million any more, now you're flagged and you're 1 in 100k

    Next wire you trip you're 1 in 10k

    Next one, they have a crosshairs on you and your account is gone.

    That's how they filter. Never trip the first wire, stay under the radar.

    But it obviously I tripped the first wire already. What can I do to make sure my acc is safe while I can use liking, follow/unfollow to increase my followers?

    This is very incorrect. I have received thousands of captchas on my spam accounts and they are still going strong after 2 years. Each account would have gotten at least 200 captchas.

    Captchas are nothing. If you get temp bans then all you do is Wait 24hrs and you are fine. The only way you will ever get a longer ban is if you are too fkn inpatient and make the same mistake again within the 24hr period. If you are too stupid to this then your account deserves to be banned.

    Had to stop the bot entirely, since I was getting Captchas nonstop. Trying again on Monday. Patience is key here I guess.

    hello, i've been mass following/unfollowing for a few weeks now doing 900 follows and unfollows per day and never had a problem, currently account is about 97K and 14 months old, but out of nowhere today i got a captcha when following a block of 100 people.... immediately stopped following and haven't followed anymore since, should i stop doing my mass follows/unfollows or what? i'm really scared to do it because that was my first captcha on this account, i do all the follows/unfollows manually, someone please put me at ease or let me know what to do to make sure my account is safe and i'm not risking anything! a lot is riding on this account and i don't know what i'd do if i lost it.

    I don't mind the captchas, i just need to know if i'm at any risk with my account in losing it! The occasional captcha is the least of my worries, just need to know if this means i'll possibly lose my account if i keep getting them because they'll think i'm "botting" or something! Let me know, thanks!
