    Wouldn't it make more sense to block me from unfollowing? Should I stop unfollowing even if I'm doing it manually when I get follow blocked? This is getting really annoying I want to get my following count low so I can start following again but instagram is throttling the shit out of me.

    Maybe you're doing it aggressively that's why you keep getting temporarily blocked from following. There's an hourly limit as far as I know.

    It really depends on the account, so yeah. There are limits for following, and also 20/h limit for unfollowing. Definitely you should space a little bit since it's pretty obvious what you're doing if you mass unfollow straight after getting blocked.

    So there is a limit of 20 for unfollowing per hour? Ok, but why when I do it with crowdfire, I don't get any limit to it while when I do it manually (60 unfollows over 5 minutes) I do get temporary ban on following?

    How many should you then manually unfollow per batch? Should it be max 60(100, 150, 200?) and do it 10 times per day to up to 600

    Oh, not sure then! For me it's 20/h (which really sucks if you've followed a lot of people). But if you have for example 60/h, try doing 15 in like 5 minutes, 20 15 minutes after then the rest at around half of hour. Or just 30 on the first half then 30 on the second half whenever.

    There's absolutely no follow/unfollow limit in Instagram..yes you read that right. if you do it correctly, you can unfollow more than a thousand follower under an hour and the same happens for following too, all you have to do is give proper delays. (i have done this so i know what i am talking about..i am talking about manual work, not botting)

    OP, you're doing it work. Try to follow people first and when you reach the follow cap, then start unfollowing everyone and once you reach 0 following..repeat.

    Would you please elaborate this a little further? I am pretty interested in that.

    I've once unfollowed about 3500 people within the same hour on a three years old account, but then again, it was a three years old account, so I have not truly tested much more.

    @OP you need to determine the best settings. On one of my oldest accounts I can unfollow up to 120-130 people during the same batch, but on a newer account, which is about one month old, I can not unfollow more than 30-40 people during the same batch. But then again, with the newer account I can like around 500-1000 pictures during the same hour, and with the older one, I can do around 100-200 max.

    All these statistics are regarding manual work. That is what I am attempting to analyze.

    Best Regards,
    Jaymien.

    First to make everything clear, i do everything manually. i have said it in the above post as well but if in case someone hasn't seen it.
    Just today i followed almost 700 people within the same 1-2 hour period. As i said above as well, you have to give it some good delays. By that i meant that first i followed almost 200 people in a single run, and then waited for about 20-30 mins and then went at it again and followed another 200-250 and did this a third time as well. These figures do not include the private accounts which were followed along the way as well. Another thing is that when i was following people, i also taking like 1-2 seconds between each follow. normally when following is done manually delay that that we give is in milliseconds but to achieve what i described above you have to give it proper delays.

    I'm confirming this. I'm doing everything manually and there's no limit anymore using the normal app. Apparently the limitation came from the application I was using on my windows phone, so yeah.
