Instagram Threatens Accounts That Use Apps To Get Fake Followers, Likes, and Comments

I din’t believe this at first when i saw it that Instagram is removing fake likes, comments, and followers that is acquired from illegal sources on people’s account.

Instagram is fighting back against automated apps people use to leave spammy comments or follow then unfollow others in hopes of growing their audience(what people do to get noticed and famous).

Today Instagram is removing from people’s accounts who use these apps inauthentic follows, Likes and comments that violate its policies; sending them a warning to change their password to cut ties with these apps.

Users typically have to provide their username and password to these services, which then take control of their accounts and automatically Like, comment on and follow accounts associated with desired hashtags to dupe them into following the unscrupulous user back, Instagram is tired of that.

The spam app users will now get scolded by Instagram, which will send “an in-app message alerting them that we have removed the inauthentic likes, follows and comments given by their account to others” and be told to change their passwords.

I think this is a bold and necessary move, what do y’all think?
