In the past, you may have followed so many accounts on Instagram including some public figures, online shops and even some other accounts that you do not know. And now, you may think that you want to unfollow some of them since you just want to follow that you know or just want to follow people who follow you back. But, how can we know the accounts that we follow do not follow us back? Then, how to unfollow accounts who are not following us on Instagram? Here, we will explain them here.
The Methods to Unfollow Everyone Who Is Not Following You on Instagram
There are two methods that you can do to unfollow people who are not following you on Instagram. The first method, you can do it manually. And the second method, you can do that automatically by the help of the third party app. Here is the explanation of each method.
Unfollowing People Who Are Not Following You on Instagram Manually
If you choose the manual method, the thing that you have to do is to search the Instagram users who are not following you. How to do that? You are able to follow the steps below.
- Let’s say that you want to know whether your friend named Lisa follows you or not. Then, you can do that by visiting her Instagram and access her Following list section. There, you have to search for your username.
- If you see that there is your profile there, it means that she is also following you. So, you do not have to unfollow her. But, if in the results there is no your profile, it means that she is not following you.
- So, if you see that she is not following you back, you are able to unfollow her by clicking on the Following button on Lisa’s Instagram profile.
As you can see from the steps that you can do this one by one. So, this method is not effective if you want to unfollow a lot of people who are not following you. The effective method is by using the third party app. How to do that? You can see the steps in the next method.
Unfollowing People Who Are Not Following You on Instagram Automatically
If you decide to use a third-party app for unfollowing people who are not following you back, then it is a good decision. It is because this method is effective as we said earlier. There are a lot of options of third party apps that you can use to know and unfollow people who are not following you back on Instagram.
Here are some of the options. You can choose one of them.
- Followers Track for Instagram
This app can be found in the App Store. This is a follower analytics which is quick and accurate for Instagram. So, you are able to check people who unfollowed you, who are not following you back, who followed you recently and more.
- Who Unfollow Me On Instagram
This app permits you to be able to track the followers that you gained and lost, people that you follow but they do not follow you back, people who deleted comments from your posts and more. If you want to download this app, you can access the App Store.
- Followers & Unfollowers
This app can be downloaded on Google Play. So, for you who are an Android user, this app can be your choice. With this app, you are able to check insights on your Instagram profile. The key features which are offered by this app are checking people who do not follow you back, mutual followers, and people who follow you but you are not following them back on Instagram.
Now, after you download one of the apps above, you are able to know the people who are not following you back on Instagram. To do that, you have to open the app and then navigate to the tab on the app which says ‘are not following back/ not following me’. When you have known people who are not following you, and then you want to unfollow them, it is important for you to note that don’t do that on the app directly. Don’t unfollow them directly through the third party app because even though the third party apps offer you to unfollow users faster, but the algorithm of Instagram will think that you are a bot and they will block you.
So, the thing that you have to do is to search for the usernames of those people on the Instagram app and then manually unfollow them there. It is also important for you to know that you have to give intervals of 5 to 10 minutes when you unfollow people to prevent being blocked by Instagram.
The Safety of Using The Third Party Apps
In the automatic method to find people who are not following you above, you have to use the third party apps. But, the question is, is using the third party app safe? Well, usually these third party apps that you get from App Store or Google Play are safe. It is because these apps go through a manual review before they can be published on the stores. So, your data will be saved safely.
But, if you want to be more careful towards any apps including these party apps, you are able to revoke access from these third party apps after you have used them. How to do that? First, you have to navigate to your Instagram profile. After that, you need to go to Menu and then choose Apps and Website and then click on Remove button. In addition, changing your Instagram password is also another method that you can do to make your data safe. By doing it, you will log out from all third party apps or sites.
So, after knowing that these apps are safe and if you want to make your data safer is by revoking access from the third party and changing your Instagram password, now you can use them without worrying.
