What is worse: Repeated Follow Blocks or Daily Phone Verifications?


#1

Hi all,

As you all may have encountered when using IG, some accounts get follow blocked and others get Phone Verified (or both lol).

In the past, I have had accounts get disabled after a lot of phone verifications, but I recently started receiving blocks.

Wanted to ask the community, which is worse for the account’s longevity: Repeated Follow Blocks several times a day or Daily Phone Verifications without any follow block?


#2

repeated PV and blocks lead to accounts getting disabled from my experience. From what I’ve read most people churn n burn the accounts once they start having repeated issues such as PV and follow/like blocks


#3

I have around 20 accounts that have experienced the PV loop, all of them having between 15K and 50K followers, and I’ve decided to rest them until there’s a fix, if there’s a fix. I don’t plan to use them anymore for the next 6 to 12 months…

They are doomed anyway, so it doesn’t really matter. Hopefully, their trust score gets reset after a few months/years.


#4

Yeah, I heard of the churn n burn too lol. Does resetting the device ID and cookies work or does it make it worse?


#5

Good lock! Hopefully the trust score gets reset :smile:


#6

that I wouldn’t be able to answer without doing a couple hours of research lol maybe @HenryCooper or @Alexnvo can chime in?


#7

They are both bad, try to avoid them, but I would say blocks are worse because your acc is doing a direct action that needs to inauthentic activity.


#8

Thanks! I am trying to avoid them, but I still get them lol. I just curious to see which ones I should try to salvage first :wink:


#9

yea, i don’t know. please don’t tag randomly.


#10

Try to not fully pause them! Just do only feed + related hashtags liking and storyviewing, no following, gonna help the trustscore a lot more than just doing nothing and all of a sudden starting again :wink:
Or do you get pv’s even with those actions? Or even with no actions at all? :hushed:


#11

Very good point. I got many PV on them even when simply Liking (warm up mode) at the end so I believe they are really screwed… but I take your advice, and I’ll give it another shot in a few days / weeks with story views and maybe a few Likes.

Thanks buddy!


#12

Good point. I actually haven’t used the like tool ever, do you recommend I do? I get the blocks only for follows, it’s fine with stories views though.


#13

Like tool is the icing on the cake. Applied properly it does have an effect. Best indicator is on the days you unfollow.


#14

Hmm, I see, thank you!


#15

Start with story views, after some time try liking feed see if that works. But tbh I personally just burn the accs that are not working… Except they are main accs obviously, but those I just don’t bot lol


#16

Thanks, I’ll try that!
