In any social network, especially Instagram, followers are associated with respect and popularity. The more followers a person has, the more often his or her posts come to the attention of new users and the higher they are rated. But it is difficult to collect many likes and followers on your own, and advertising requires financial investment. That's why many users of the service use the script to whip up followers on Instagram. But do all scripts work and make a real difference? Can you get a ban for them? What is the best way to use them?
What is it?
Scripts or macros are a script, an algorithm written by a user, that is needed to solve a task. Through them, you can set up automatic actions to save time.
Simply put, the script automates the process of mass subscribing to accounts according to certain criteria. You subscribe to the person who sees the action, and then they go to your page. Whether it works or not is entirely up to you and your account. The more interesting a page is for a visitor, the more likely it is that they will subscribe to you. It is also important to remember that some people will unsubscribe from your page over time. Yes, the hype will quickly add to your fan base, but it's up to you to keep them.
Can you get a ban?
Many scriptwriters claim that their code cannot be blocked. To some extent, they are right, but the lack of a ban is due only to the delay settings between subscriptions. Putting followers on Instagram via a script, if used correctly, will never result in an account being blocked.
Instagram is constantly updating its policies and software to combat any automated activity, including the scamming of followers. If your account is highly active, there is a chance that it will be blocked. To avoid this, we recommend sticking to the following limits:
- Subscribe no more than once every 30 seconds.
- Unsubscribe no more than once every 20 seconds.
- The total number of subscriptions per day does not exceed 1,000.
- The total number of unsubscriptions is no more than 2,000 (1,000 for mutual and 1,000 for non-mutual).
At the moment (August 2018), compliance with these limits reduces the chance of an account ban to 0%.
Another rule to follow is that there is only one type of cheating. If you use macros, opt out of social activity sharing services, programs, and other ways. Even if the settings allow you to stay within the limit, such abnormal account activity can become a reason for temporary or permanent blocking.
How they work
The script is done step-by-step for followers on Instagram. The user must log into another person's popular account, whose subscribers would be interested in your profile. After that, a macro is launched, which starts folding the popular person's subscribers. If you haven't found a popular person in your field, you can scroll through the profiles of the most popular Instagrammers in Russia. But such a mass-folding would be less effective when compared to a general-theme spin-off.
Preparing for the hype
As already mentioned, a potential subscriber should be kept by the page he has visited. How to do this is the subject of a separate extensive article, but here, too, we offer some important tips to increase the effectiveness of the spin.
If you have a new account, be sure to define the main topic of your account. Yes, you can alternate photos of seals with videos about sports, but that would be a bit irrational. Ideally, you need 2-3 months of the same subject matter content with active followers on Instagram.
Once created, you have to wait a while - two to three weeks. All the while, post photos, videos, and stories every day. This is necessary not only to attract followers, but also for Instagram to tag your account as "reliable." At the same time, tie all social networks that are available to your account.
At first, try to limit the number of outgoing subscriptions to 500. After a few days, raise it to 750, and a week later to 750. .; 1 000. If you have not had any outgoing requests in the last 2 weeks, we recommend reducing all values by 2 times: 250, 350, 500 and 1,000 (1.5 to 2 weeks after the script is launched).
Selecting a Subscriber Base
Choosing a popular profile that you want to lure to you is an important part of the trick. It is advisable to choose someone whose content matches yours. If you have not yet decided on a topic, use the most popular accounts from Russia:
- Olga Buzova: £13.5 million;
- Timati: £12.5 million
- Ksenia Borodina: £11.5 million;
- Victoria Bonya, £6.5 million.
Because of constant updates to Instagram, macros and scripts stop functioning. Instagram followers are no exception. That is why it is so difficult to find an up-to-date and working version for follov. The examples below are 100% workers as of the end of August 2018.
For the browser console
Script link Click on the link and copy the script to the clipboard:
- CTRL + C shortcut;
- By pressing PKM, "Copy."
For starters, we open the profile of the person whose subscribers will be the base for massfollov. After that, open the console and insert the copied code into it.
How to Open a Console
- Mozilla CTRL-SHIFT-K;
- Opera: CTRL-SHIFT-I key combination;
- Google Chrome: CTRL-SHIFT-J.
- The other browsers are one of the above combinations.
If everything is done right, the script will start working. To stop it, simply close the Instagram tab.
Let's be clear: this method is much more complicated than the previous one. If you don't have the time and / or inclination to understand Python, use a browser script instead.
InstaPy works on the basis of Python, which opens up wide possibilities for the user. It adds not only subscribers, but also likes and comments. But in this article, we will consider only the trickle-down of fans.
InstaPy will require the installation of:
- The latest version of Google Chrome ;
- Microsoft Build Tools ;
- Microsoft. NET Framework ;
- GitHub Desktop ;
- Python ;
- Chrome Drivers ;
- GUI .
After installing Python, open the Python 36 / 32 root folder, press SHIFT, and press PKM to open the command window.
In the opened console, type:
- pip install selenium
- python -m pip install pyvirtualdisplay
- py get-pip. py
Installation of the necessary software is complete.
The first launch is via the GUI by opening the InstaPy file. exe. Enter the desired settings and save them. After that, the script will be run via start. bat.
The InstaPy script is very customized for followers on Instagram, the parameters are changed in the quickstart file. py. You can open it with any text editor, but it is better to use NotePad
- insta _ username = 'your Instagram login';
- insta _ password = 'your Instagram password'.
The remaining values can be left as standard. If done right, InstaPy will work. To configure automatic subscriptions, add to quickstart. py strings:
For the Massfold at Popular Profiles
session. follow _ user _ followers (['profile address 1', 'profile address 2', 'profile address 3'], amount = 10, randomize = False, sleep _ delay = 600); .; sleep _ delay: delay between actions (standard value of 600 seconds); .; The number of subscriptions before the pause.
For the follow under the tag
session. follow _ by _ tags (['tag 1', 'tag 2'], amount = 10)
After all the settings, save the changes and start. Bat InstaPy will start automatically winding up fans.

How to whip up followers on Instagram: script or. . .
We recommend using scripts, not social activity sharing sites or programs. They have significant advantages:
- The risk of blocking is minimal, up to 0%.
- There is no risk of account theft.
- Most macros can be customized by changing the required values.
- Installation is not required (if we are talking about browser versions).
- The coating takes place in the background, requiring nothing from the user.
- Setup takes 1-2 minutes (for browser versions).
The choice is for you to try to gain subscribers on your own, or to run a bot for a couple of hours that will do a lot better.
