Instagram Will Remove Fake Likes & Followers

Instagram wants to fight fake likes, follows, and comments by more actively removing them, from accounts that use third-party apps as a way to inflate their popularity. The social media platform said this monday in their blogpost:

"We’ve built machine learning tools to help identify accounts that use these services and remove the inauthentic activity. This type of behavior is bad for the community, and third-party apps that generate inauthentic likes, follows and comments violate our Community Guidelines and Terms of Use".

Users who use these apps will receive the following message, letting them know their artificial activity on Instagram has been removed, and they are also prompted to change their password:
