Instagram follow block solution. June – July 2019

Hello Guys, today I want to share with you the final solution for the instagram block wave that happened last month on June 4th.

Here I’m consulting for many Social Media Management companies and I’ve helped them to solve the instagram follow block issue for more than 475 accounts on the last 14 days and I’m pretty sure I’ve find the solution that will work for many of you, if I missed something I’ll add later on.

First things first, this is over and all accounts should be back to work, if you’re still blocked from 4th june, you’ve something wrong with your setup.

It can be:

  1. Proxies.
  2. Settings on your software.
  3. Amount of activities in the last 30 days.
  4. Device fingerprint.

Solutions I’ve found and remember, all depends of the account trust score and how it was created etc:

  1. First of all, many of the clients I’m consulting had the follow tool turned on since 4th june and when I checked the results page they were with block lifted on 19 to 26 june but got block after block after block as they didn’t stop the follow tool since than, so please stop the follow tool for all blocked accounts first and wait until you can follow 1 person manually on the EB to be sure it’s following properly, when you’re sure, please keep the tool stopped and don’t follow anyone else the next 48h.
  2. After block lifted please do not restart the follow tool on the same day and also ask your client to not try to follow anyone there in their phone, rest the follow tool for at least 48h and start the tool warming up 5-15 max follows on first day than after warm up 3-5 days you can get back to work.
  3. Mobile proxies is working better than DC, no hard blocks on likes and I’m able to go to 400 likes per day with some accounts without blocks (you can say all you want, I’m using mobile and have no issue, if you are not having issues amazing but if you are having issues and use DC with moderate settings, think twice)
  4. For follows is definitely working better with intervals between 60 and 90m and I can’t follow more than 405 per day so looks like it’s a daily limitation(not sure yet).
  5. For stories views and story comment you can go harder and get good fbr and engagement back(No limitations so far).
  6. For like please use it mixed with like after follow and you will get better follow back ratio and again, USE MOBILE PROXIES(limitation for DC proxies around 100-130 likes per day)
  7. For like comments there is not any change on limitations from before 4th june (limitations around 90-160 per day)
  8. For comments there is not any change on limitations from before 4th june (limitations around 70-230 per day)
  9. For dm’s, same as before, can’t see changes on limitations I do around 28-40 per day.

If you’re having issues with API or your tools are stucked but still can do all the actions on embedded browser and also on the phone, please do the following:

Please set your accounts to do actions on the embedded browser when actions blocked by making the options below as indicated on the screenshot on SETTINGS –> Social Platform –> Instagram Tab .

“use EB to follow when action blocked”
“use EB to like when action blocked”
“use EB to comment when action blocked”

If that doesn’t make them do actions on embedded browser, Please go to SOCIAL PROFILES tab, click on your account, then scroll down and check the option Show Advanced Profile Settings.

Then check the options below as indicated:

“use EB to follow when action blocked”
“use EB to like when action blocked”
“use EB to comment when action blocked”

Another solution/alternative to action block without RESET DEVICE ID – only for accounts that are working on the phone and web but not in EB

f you have action blocks working with the EB, and if your client are still able to follow with the app (even if you get action block pop up when trying via EB)


Go to Social profiles, select the account, and click where says “actions on selected profiles” and then “clear cookies”, then “start and stop the tool”, you should be good to go.

I’ve found three solutions for LOGIN LOOP/TWO FACTOR AUTHENTICATION not showing up issues that work on most cases:

  1. Add new instagram profile and put username:pass and try.
  2. Please change to mobile or residential proxy, reset ID and try again if it does not login directly, ask customer to click where says IT WAS ME and try again.
  3. Please ask the client to check their settings -> security -> LOGIN ACTIVITY and click where says IT WAS ME on the lastest login activity and try again.

Overall all working good and it not a software issue, is just amount of activities + settings + proxies + fingerprints device.

And there is some w3ird cases with new accounts that still working on a solution.

If you have any questions please let me know.
