    I've been getting a few lately when in the process of unfollowing on FL. Is it because of short delays, or the accumulation of a high amount of follows/unfollows after a few days of automation? Or some other reason?

    Captchas are to make sure you're not a bot automating requests.

    I know that but there must be a reason they pop up more frequently than not?

    You're probably using IG from a range of IP's where a lot of automated requests originate.

    My accounts are more prone to captcha's after I get the password reset.

    If you're getting a lot of captcha's it's because the website thinks you are botting.

    Captchas happen 99% of times during unfollowing. To avoid them, I'd suggest lowering the limits.

    Following and then Unfollowing in Bulk automatically triggers their Anti-Spam Security Plugins...In turn you are stopped using Captchas

    I think OP is asking what specific actions trigger captchas.
    I got my first one ever on one of my accounts. It came up twice or so and stopped completely and I do a lot of automation on that account for months now.. so what triggered the captcha is what OP is asking

    why not on all my accounts performing the same account, why just that one

    OP correct me if I'm wrong but I understand this to be where you are coming from

    yeah that's what I meant but I see now I worded the question wrong. I've changed it though.

    just lower down the limit of unfollowing and you'll be fine
