Instagram acts against users who buy followers, likes and comments




Instagram has started acting against users who bought followers, likes and comments from third-party apps. That way, those users want to increase their popularity. Instagram removes the likes and reactions and asks those users to change the password.

Instagram fake followers action Changing the password would be effective because those third-party apps can add “neplikes” by getting the passwords from those users, reports Instagram . This step requires users to give their password to such apps again after warning that Instagram has removed the fakes.

The Facebook subsidiary would use machine learning to track third-party apps that serve as a service to provide accounts with more followers, likes and comments. It is unknown how exactly that happens.

Instagram calls the possibility to buy followers ‘bad for the community’ and it would stand in the way of ‘authentic contacts’ on the social network. That is why the site is taking more and more action against such services. Instagram does not provide figures on how many services and users are involved.
