People may have once followed pages they liked. However, when new posts from those profiles become disturbing and inappropriate, users may prefer to unfollow them. If there are too many of these accounts, Instagram's mass unfollowing comes into play. There is no inbuilt feature on Instagram for mass unfollowing, so one needs to use third-party applications for this.

How to mass unfollow on Instagram

We use third-party apps and browser plugins for Instagram mass unfollowing. Each of them has a different interface and works differently.

Is Instagram mass unfollowing possible on PC

It is much harder to perform it on PC than on mobile. This is because the plugins and programs available are often not designed for desktops. Either their interfaces are cluttered or they may contain inappropriate content. For this reason, it's recommended that you choose mobile applications.

Where to find Instagram bulk unfollow code

As with Twitter, there are some codes for unfollowing on Instagram. However, the time to use these codes is extremely short because the Instagram team is constantly releasing updates to disrupt their functioning and forbid such transactions. In other words, if you are not a software developer, it is not possible to perform Instagram mass unfollowing with code for now. There are some codes shared on the internet, but you may be asked to download them as a file. Our advice is to avoid files with codes because there is a high probability of virus infection.

Instagram mass unfollow on mobile

It’s more convenient to perform Instagram mass unfollowing on mobile. Below you can find the ways to perform mass unfollowing on devices powered by Android and iOS.

  5. Choose the way you want to select. Tap "Select All" to select all your followers.
  6. Then tap on the "Action" button.
  7. Tap on "Unfollow" and give the necessary confirmation.

Is there an Instagram unfollow limit

Yes, there is a follow and unfollow limits on Instagram that equal 150 users per day. However, for some accounts, this can reach 200 and above. Many factors influence these features, such as the age of the account, the number of posts, and whether it posted spamming content. In Instagram mass unfollow programs, you are usually allowed to make transactions with over 100 or 50 people at a time.

Is Instagram mass unfollowing harmful to my account

All operations performed on Instagram by non-users, that is, through outer software, can be harmful. If you want to reset your followers, it would be good to consider the limits. Because if you exceed them, restrictions may be imposed on your account, or it may even be perceived as a "bot" and get closed.

Things to note in Instagram unfollowing apps

There are not many things to pay attention to in terms of security when using apps because almost all applications ask for your Instagram username and password.

Generally, applications are divided into two groups. Those that copy the password you enter to their servers without telling you about it and those that do not perform any storage/copying. There are no account theft incidents in the applications on the stores, with exceptions. However, the possibility of your password being stolen is much higher in external applications.

In any case, it’s useful to think twice before using Instagram's mass unfollowing applications. Because there is a slight risk of your account being stolen.
