If you noticed a popup in your Instagram app warning you that Instagram is removing inauthentic likes and follows, you’re not alone. This is a mass message that Instagram sent out to millions of users on its platform – many of whom do not have any inauthentic likes or follows.

Should You Be Worried?

If you’ve been buying likes or followers, your account is at risk because these are activities that are strictly prohibited. Otherwise, there is nothing to be concerned about. If you’ve been using an organic growth service (like ours) then you have nothing to fear because Instagram is specifically targeting inorganic activity on its platform.

Instagram has been actively cracking down on fake likes and followers in recent months and this is just a continuation of that trend. If you’re looking to grow on Instagram, we strongly recommend using organic methods so that you don’t get your account in trouble and so that you can grow at a natural rate that will help your success in the long-term.
