Instagram Follow Block - Mega Thread - Level 1 [SERIOUS]


I’m creating this so everyone has an outlet to share test results and theories.

There are only 2 rules:

  1. if you want to share a “solution” provide as much information as you can about it. NOT SPECULATION, but information. What you did, how, when, on how many accounts, etc.

My friend who has a neighbor who read on a forum that IG is doing X Y Z - this is nonsense so please don’t post it.

  1. Be nice - if this turns to trash talk and measuring who is bigger and better, I will personally shut it down. If you see some salty apple in the thread, try to diffuse the situation, not add it it.

Having said all of that, I’m going to lock the other level 1 threads so the discussion does not happen over 25 threads.

Thanks MojoJojo.

So many threads talking about the same topic.


And to put everyone at ease - the level 2 mega thread is ongoing with many theories and proposed solutions, but nothing solid as of this moment.

So, you are not missing out on some magic solution :slight_smile:

If anything actionable does come up, it will pop up on all levels. Noone is going to be left out.

As a parting thought - situations such as these go to show there is value in being a regular member of the forum.

People lurk for months or only come when there is an issue and become upset that they don’t have the highest level of access. Life does not work like that.

Come here when times are good, share, contribute, be nice and when the shit hits the fan, as it does every few months, you’ll have access to the top level discussions. Simple, yet effective.


I’ve seen a few theories.
I’d just like to put my info out there.
No Blocks on this account:

Old account - over 6000 actions last 30 days. Added to Jarvee May 23rd
4G proxy
Yesterday did over 600 actions
Today doing unfollows - at about 200 so far today.
Account does not meet the “new only” or “6000 action criteria” mentioned as theories.
Account is used manually a lot on top of auto. Manual…
DM’s, comments, stories on top of that. Even the odd report or two put in.
No issues so far at all.
Account around 12 months old. Has had two copywrite notices (both contested) and a recent SB - out of shadowban now.


Everyone needs to chill. I have only been doing this for 12 months and have probably seen this type of thing 3 or 4 times.

Insta updates\changes something->everyones head falls off -> jarvee updates 2 days later and everything is fine again.

Chill champ chill.


Wise words. Thank you for doing that.

for the last few days I’ve been doing 250-300 follow and 275 and 325 unfollow daily and haven’t any blocks :thinking::thinking::thinking:


Me has lvl1 i don’t think if you figure something out in lvl2 don’t put right on lvl1 because IG crawlers.
Has you said if people want lvl2 stop complaining and grind in this forum, if you want the best eggs you have to gain for them and not just luckering here and there…


110 accounts -10 each mobile proxys
allclients account

if any1 have an idea how to fix i would apperciate

my mobile proxy from itally and my accounts clients all from israel could be proxy?
even through they worked fine untill2 days ago


Just do not exceed 6,000 follows per month. If you have had 600 follows per day for the last 30 days - you have exceeded the new monthly limit by 12,000. The follow-block will be gone in 20 days (12,000 surplus divided by 600), so a repeat of 3 week follow-block from 8th May. However this time for all accounts.


but what should we do with already blocked accounts?


Just wait, it will be gone sooner or later. The length of the follow-block depends on your follow settings and most likely on trust score of the account.


Is it safe to continue doing likes, and other actions? I’m almost too afraid to post new pictures.


All of our accounts on mobile proxies can perform 600+ likes per day without any issues (I’m just testing it since couple of days, so it’s hard to say about monthly limit for likes).

Also - I’ve set a highly wide range of follows and likes that the accounts execute - as 50-400 daily follows with an hourly range of 6 - 35 actions (this is strategy from Proposing a solution for combating follow blocks on new bot accounts). I think that this could help avoid any automation patterns.


I am running 100 accounts with 70% follow blocked.
Although it’s true most of the newer account survived, but I also do have account that performed 9600 follow for the past 30 days ( 4rd May- 4rd of June) that’s not been affected by the follow block.


4th May - 4th june


Nice! I have 40 unblocked accounts for 200+ (all of these 40 accs followed less than 6500 people in last 30 days).


So if this monthly cap is a thing, when does it begin each month?


It’s rolling probably.
