How to Get Rid of Bots on Instagram
Instagram spam bots are a huge nuisance to creators on the platform. They inflate engagement, flood comments with out of context messages, and can even send users malware through direct messages. Bots can also have real-world consequences for private and business accounts including a ban from Instagram, reduced reach of posts, poor brand image, and stolen content and information.
Will Instagram bots get you banned?
How to get rid of bots on instagram? Instagram is constantly refining their systems to identify and remove bots, but they can be difficult to detect. If you suspect that an account is a bot, you can report it by tapping the three dots on the profile and choosing “Report Account” from the menu. Instagram will investigate the account and if they find it to be violating their community guidelines, they will take action.
If you want to take a more proactive approach, you can start by manually removing followers that don’t interact with your posts or are inactive. To do this, log in to your Instagram account and tap the profile icon to view a list of all followers. Scroll through the list and find accounts that don’t follow you back or appear to be spammers. You can then remove or block the account.
There are a variety of third-party apps that claim to remove ghost followers or inactive accounts, but these services come with their own set of problems. Many of them rely on the same technology that bots use to create their spam messages. They can also cause Instagram police to flag your account, leading to shadow-banning or a ban from the platform altogether.
