Instagram is cracking down on inauthentic activity on Instagram

Instagram is cracking down on inauthentic activity on Instagram

Instagram is working on improving ways to monitor fake likes, comments, and follows for users to have a more genuine experience

According to Instagram, "every day people come to Instagram to have real experiences, including genuine interactions." Instagram feels that it is responsible for ensuring that those real experiences are not interrupted by inauthentic activity, "bots." So, they've built machine learning tools that will be able to identify accounts that use special services to buy followers or comment/like photos.

Accounts that use the services to obtain followers and likes will begin to receive messages from Instagram letting them know that the inauthentic likes, follows, and comments will be removed. Instagram will also ask them to change their password because the third-party apps require that the user share their password.
