Although there is no limit on how many people can follow you, Instagram has set a limit to the number of people that you can follow to reduce spam. Once you’ve reached a Following amount of 7500, Instagram will send an error that “You can’t follow any more people”.
Gramista’s Follower and Unfollower are integrated as one tool. When used without Smart Mode, it will keep following until the 7500 limit count has been reached. This is the point where you will notice that your account no longer follows and just automatically unfollows instead simply because its following count has been maxed out and there’s no more room to fill in for new accounts. Please be guided that our scripts can only keep track of its own activities, so anytime you unfollow users on your own (or with the use of other apps), they are not counted off from Gramista’s following count. Also, making manual activities on your account whenever Gramista is running, apart from posting contents and answering direct messages and occasional comments, can eventually lead Instagram to restrict some or all your activities.

The only way to get Gramista to start following again for you is to simply allow your account to go through the unfollowing cycle and purge its following history. When there’s no other issues with your account, this whole process can take a few days to about a week to complete. In case there are accounts you want to make sure are protected from getting unfollowed during this time, you can temporarily add them in your account’s Usernames Blacklist so they will be completely avoided by our bot.
We highly recommend using our Follower/Unfollower tool hand-in-hand with Smart Mode, which is set to on by default when you start using Gramista. There’s 3 reasons for this:
- Smart Mode regulates the automatic turns of your account’s following and unfollowing cycles
- It remembers the users it followed during the following cycle and only unfollows from the pool.
- It has a customizable cycle to any number between 100 and 7500. This will be the amount of Instagram users your account will follow in one cycle. This setting can be found from your Gramista Dashboard Settings page when Smart Mode is switched on.
