You can find your newly installed Growbot for Instagram extension within instagram.com. The icon will appear next to the instagram logo on the upper left. If it's not there, try reloading the page.
The bot comes with a 1 week free trial. After that, you must subscribe to continue using Growbot.
The price is $6.99 per month, or $69.99 per year. Click "Subscribe Now" (if your trial is still active). Just try to load the bot if your trial has ended. You will see the two options to purchase, click one of the buttons.
One great thing about using Growbot compared to other methods is that you never have to give us your password!
The bot works within instagram.com and will appear to instagram as your own IP address as well. However, you must leave the instagram window open, or Growbot will stop doing it's job. If you're not currently using Growbot it is safe to close instagram.
Find an account which is similar to yours or that you think their followers will want to follow your account too.
(If you're a bar, find a bar in your neighborhood that is similar. If you're a store, find a store tha$ If you're a band, find a band that's similar, etc.)
If it seems to not unfollow anyone, please check the Log (located on the bottom right, smaller screens like laptops may need to collapse the options above to see it.) If it is skipping people, uncheck "Do not unfollow people who follow me" and/or "Do not unfollow people who match my filters" as necessary.
The actual filters can be found by clicking the funnel icon at the top right of the queue.
Instagram limits the amount of accounts which can be followed in a given time period. Their limits are not completely known and could change at any time, and can vary from account to account.
There are three main types of limits:
A 429 limit is very common. The bot will automatically wait 1 minute before trying again. It can take between 1 and 15 minutes to clear, usually.
A soft limit will be hit occasionally and usually lasts about 10 minutes, after which following/unfollowing can be resumed.
A hard limit is hit less often, but lasts much longer, usually at least 12 hours, sometimes up to 48 hours. Note: if you constantly experience hard rate limit when following, please check that you are following less than 7500 people. That is the maximum instagram allows you to follow.The bot can be configured to respect these limits and wait a certain amount of time before trying again.
Make sure your computer is not going to go to sleep while it's running
Either keep the instagram window that Growbot is running in frontmost and active, or disable background throttling in Chrome.
To see the 300 most recent posts you've liked on a mobile device:
Keep in mind that there isn't a way to view posts that you've liked on the web.
By default Growbot won't unfollow people that Growbot didn't follow just because most people want to keep their original following. You can disable this by clicking the Settings cog icon, and unchecking "Don't unfollow people followed outside of Growbot" under "Configure Unfollowing Options."
Please include the entire text of the Log after you have a problem using copy + paste in your email. The Log is found on the lower right side of the Growbot window.
Also helpful is the dev tools console of Chrome. Screenshot or copy and paste of the entire console text. To open the dedicated Console panel, either: Press Ctrl+Shift+J (Windows / Linux) or Cmd+Opt+J (Mac).
