    I was using 4 accounts on my home ip adress. Now using 3 accounts and Hopefully that solves it. Also made my actions a bit less. About 350 max follow instead of 400.

    Hi there! So, I've been using Jarvee for a while now, I've had to learn a few things the hard way as well. From what I've managed to see, I'm getting a few of these messages as well, Insta really ignores your account after resetting your password when you receive this message. Had it on three out of over a hundred followers, instantly started going through them all and changing passwords. Haven't had a PV on these accounts in a while, and stopped receiving the messages. Basically, anything that indicates it's not a bot.

    Jarvee tell us it's nothing to worry about, however it is a jarring notification for a client to receive. Some of our clients receiving this have also received temporary follow blocks but most have cleared up.

    We are telling clients that IG can't remove Likes and followers because the people liking and following chose to give a like and a follow manually. It's their choice. The notification the users receive to come to a client's page is what is automated.

    Not sure about IG's long game with the users who use automation...banning seems harsh since IG allows automation to happen in the first place when they were built. Limiting activity and reach is probably where they start, but who knows?

    Just got a similar message. Reset device ID, changed password and turned my bot off. Will fire that account up again in 48 hours

    So it's nothing to worry too much about?

    So you suggest to change password in each account that receive this message?

    Yeah I got this message on a few of IGs.
    Don't worry It's just a message it doesn't do nothing.
    However in my case this is caused because of Powerlike groups (3rd party) software I used.
    -3rd party asks for username and pw
    -3rdparty automatically follow/likes
    -you get followers/likes
    -you get the message
    In last 6 days I have seen it like 8 times until now but I guess It's nothing.

    This one looks pretty bad since it says that the account may be removed.
