[DISCUSSION] Unfollow Blocks


#106

Just been flicking through the comments. Do you guys think we need a solution where an account is managed via just EB or API, not a mixture of both. I think people who unfollow at night only are getting less issues, but those who F/UF at the same time with follows on EB only…will be flicking between API and EB all day from the same IP.

I don’t think it’s unusual you could have someone at a work desk with IG on the phone and on the computer, it’s just not unusual. I think however that JV producing no movements at all, or that JV is just following/unfollowing/liking/commenting without going through how a user would get to do that action, means the bots are easily detectable.


#108

@Drav thats the clue. just dont use the bot on your working-pc and insta manually at the same time, when you are out of office. thats why i think i got the “compromised” message the last days. (=2 logins on 2 different places)


#109

Hi Drav, but if you was on a work pc and on your phone…would the ip addresses be the same? huge point about how someone moves around on Insta.


#110

yes @Neilos
that is no problem. just dont interact too fast


#111

Some will be on the same IP as in company or home WiFi and then some mobiles will always be on 4g.


#112

instagram could handle that. even my lte router, that localize me 200km away is no problem.

(was logged in and took actions on my phone in 4g locallized in city 1 and at the same time in the same account in my lte router wlan that localize me on their servers 400km away in city 2)

as i say, insta see easily who uses a bot.


#113

if 4 accounts are running on the same internet connection, then probably there, is the first issue. Usually 1 account 1 ip


#114

Just got another 2 clients hit with account “compromised” all 12 of them are unfollow blocked and follow temp blocked too. I am unplugging all of them thats too much of a risk. Time to move on to some other growth strategies.

I will be just using my own IG accounts for automation for some testing but if it keeps heading in the same direction I really can’t imagine I could make it work.


#115

Have you been able to unfollow anyone through Jarvee today?
Thank you.


#116

all my accounts are unfollow blocked as well as of today. =-( . FL and JV


#117

What are all of the major vendors that people are using?

JV
FL
??

What else are people using and are those blocked too?

Is there a platform that does unfollow through EB?


#118

So far today, I have not heard of anyone being able to unfollow through Jarvee


#119

Yeh%20Nah

Many are unfollow blocked but some are not. Hoping for that jarvee update : )


#120

Thanks at least the unfollow function is working for some people.
I am still deluged with temporary follow action blocks and now unfollow blocks.


#122

I remember I read somewhere that it’s max. 5 accounts on residential broadband IP.


#123

I received this back from Jarvee regarding the unfollow blocks

“Thank you for contacting us.

#124

Thanks for letting us know!
I wonder how many more days until they release the next update


#125

I asked that in my response! Still waiting for an answer!


#126

So you saying slow the time between actions right down? What setting are you using if you wouldn’t mind sharing?
