No matter which tool you choose – regardless if you’re looking to buy followers on Instagram or not, you will find something that will undoubtedly help your Instagram account to grow and flourish. While it may be tempting to use more than one of these bots to your account at the same time to accelerate your growth, we would advise against it. Too much activity too quickly can signal to Instagram that you are using a bot on your account, which will put it at risk. The goal is to keep it looking natural without you being the one to have to do it – not to cheat the system.
