What is the Instagram rate limit?

Instagram, like many other web services, imposes a rate limit. A rate limit is a limit on a certain number of activities that can be performed at any given time.  It can be 2 per minutes, 20 per hours, 100 per day and etc.

We have found that different accounts have different rate limits. For instance, older and more popular accounts might have higher rate limits than newer or smaller accounts.

Basically from what we have observed is:

  • 500-900 likes / day
  • 200-350 follows / day
  • 150-220 unfollows / day

Our bot will try and adjust the rate of your account to comply with the rate limit.
