    I started following/unfollowing on one of my instagram accounts yesterday using Followliker. Not more than 12hours later, one of my pages disappeared on instagram. When I visit the page, I am presented with "Sorry, this page is not available", when I try to log into the account, it says my username/pw is invalid. I have checked my emails and have not received any emails from instagram at all regarding my account. I also tried resetting the password and it says "Sorry this user is not active".

    Did I get banned? This is my first time botting on instagram so I am unsure of what happens when an instagram account gets banned.

    (I used "safe" FL settings suggested by many users, follow 500-600, delay 50-70. I waited a full 48hrs upon creating the account to start botting, so it really puzzles me that I got banned. Anyone got advice?)

    For NEW accounts 500 - 600 is not good dude ... start with 100 - 200 first week or two, then 200-300 and slowly increase your settings.
    I'm currently botting 2 years old acc with 600-700 per day ... yeah I know, I can push it to 1000 - 1200 per day, but I prefer to stay on the safe side :)

    Oh jesus, really? I read a few journey threads and instagram threads, no one seems to be having troubles starting at 500-600 straight off the bat. Even if someone did get banned, they only got a temporary ban, so it really surprised me when i got my account disabled. I guess i'll learn from my mistake and start slowly this time.

    Doesn't instagram send out emails to notify you when an instagram account is banned? (how do i confirm if i got temp/perma banned?)

    Start way lower and grow it slowly.
    Maybe start with 50-100 follows / day for few days then start increasing it, 100-200, 200-350, once the account is atleast a month old and has atleast 1-2k+ followers then you can use 400-600 / day.

    Happened to me once too. Haha. You can even create a new account with that same username now. Like they've completely erased it off the face of the Instagram.

    Really? If you can sign up again with the same username, then that's great! lol

    Can't use the same username unfortunately :(

    Just had my second account disabled, this is after 48hours of botting (one day of 500-600, and then switched to 200-300 after my first account got banned). I guess even 200-300 was still too aggressive, I will try 100-200 and start going up by 100s every week.

    Everyone seems to doing fine with instagram whilst I'm hit with bans within days of starting my venture, i envy the people who don't get banned with more aggressive settings :(

    UPDATE:

    I have created new accounts and they have all subsequently been banned within 48 hours. These new accounts that have been getting banned weren't even following/unfollowing, but simply using igerslike to schedule photo posts (twice a day). I have checked with both proxy suppliers and they have confirmed that the proxies I am using on igerslike are not blacklisted by instagram nor have they been used to access the social media platform.

    Can anyone perhaps provide insight as to why my accounts are getting banned whilst only using igerslike to post photos?

    Then the problem is either:

    1. The bot you used to create accounts.
    2. igerslike (very unlikely).

    Why don't you use igerslike to create accounts?

    Well I thought that since I was able to create accounts using my phone, I'd create the accounts myself.

    My accounts never last longer than 48hours, however, what I have noticed is that the two accounts that I stopped uploading using igerslike before the 48hour mark survive and aren't disabled.

    My 3 weeks old account too was disabled today. I had started using instagress a few days ago, at slow speed. The account got disabled after 19 hours of use, 334 likes - 105 comments & 247 Follows.

    Has instagram become strict now? Or did I invite trouble by running it non-stop for so long? Before yesterday I never ran it for more that 8 hours straight & also had not used auto comments feature.

    Any thoughts?

    Every kind of unusual behavior can cause you to trigger their ban system.

    you comments might be a problem, depending on how you set them up.

    I had 10 custom comments as per instagress recommendation.

    Any instagress users? Would love to hear your thoughts.

    I too have just had two accounts get disabled from what I suspect is related to igerslike after reading the above..

    2-4 global delay
    250-350 follows a day
    700 likes max daily
    50-90 second delays

    I wasn't hitting any of my limits with followliker. Even a new account created through igerslike which wasn't being botted by followliker at all, just posting through igerslike got disabled...
