12.Main Automation Platforms


When it comes to enabling automation features;

i) Make sure to use function “Pause actions ..” to pause the module, especially, overnight.

ii) Avoid running multiple automation tasks: For the safety of your account and to prevent Instagram ‘soft blocks’, it is recommended to run single automation activities before using the next and never run more than two activities at the same time.

iii) And when combining multiple activities, always avoid running Auto Follow + Auto Unfollow at the same time. This could be risky for your account. You can combine two other activities apart from these two.

iv) Always Read your activity log: The purpose of the log page for every activity is to let you know how your account is performing these tasks when you follow these logs.

Yes No
12.1.Lead Generation

The Module shows a list of Usernames for Users who have interacted with your profile recently, such as Followed you, Liked one of your Posts, Commented one of your Posts, etc…along with the link to their Profile and/or post.

So it also basically helps you to target/re-target those users in case you have a campaign to target the potential customers on whatever business your Instagram account is involved in.

It’s more or less like Lead search but this one focuses on Instagram users who have interacted with your Profile/posts.

14.Trouble Shooting
14.1.InstagramAPI/Response/GenericResponse: Feedback required

The Instagram feedback required error is one of the most common errors you can easily encounter when using Instagram either manually or when using an automation tool like gramscrape.

Reasons for the Feedback Required error is usually caused by the following;
  1. Instagram Server error (Unable to Connect to Instagram)
  2. Targeted account error
  3. Performing activities too fast
  4. Targeted Hashtags are Banned
  5. Posting Spammy comments

The above reasons are just a few among the possible cause of this issue, however, they are the most common reasons.

  1. Instagram Server error:If you’re using an automation tool like gramscrape, there is a possibility that we’re unable to connect your account to Instagram due to an overload on the server housing your account on gramscrape, therefore this error occurs. A reason like this is usually fixed when you retry after few minutes or you can simply contact us to have it fixed.
  2. Targetted account error: You can encounter the Instagram Feedback required error when there is an issue with the account you’re trying to interact with. This could be as a result of privacy settings or the user have decided to block your account.

In this case, you can simply ignore the feedback required error as you won’t encounter issues when you moved on to the next targeted account.

  1. Performing Activities too fast: If you perform tasks too fast or you have hit the Instagram limits of your account, you are bound to face this error also. There is a set limit for performing various tasks on Instagram such as Follow, Unfollow, Likes and Comments.

For new/dormant accounts, the limit is low compared to old,active and trusted accounts. Although we have set a safe limit for gramscrape according to our trusted research, some users might still face the InstagramAPI\Response\GenericResponse: Feedback required when they’re hitting their account limit.

  1. Targeted Hashtags are Blacklisted: Sometimes, the issue might not be with your account or your activity, it could be your target. Instagram constantly ban hashtags that have been abused, if you include such hashtag in your targeted tags, then you might encounter this error. See the updated list of banned hashtags on Instagram down this menu.
  2. Posting Spammy comments: If you post comments that Instagram suspects to be a spam, you might be stopped from performing this task and the action required error might come up.

This is why we always advise BistaApp users to use spintax and variables in their comments and DMs.

Solutions to the Instagram Feedback Required Error

Note: For new Instagram accounts, errors like this do occur if you have not verified your account, especially with a mobile number AND if you’ve not used the account on the official Instagram mobile app. In this case, we advise you to verify the account (preferably with a mobile number) and also perform tasks such as Follow, Like and comment on the official Instagram mobile app.

  1. Other recommended fix will be to pause the activity and resume in 24-48 hours with slower speed.
  2. We have designed the system to automatically re-schedule your activity after 24 hours, so you have the option to pause it manually or the system will do this for you automatically, especially if you aren’t around.
  3. Make sure to use function “Pause actions every day..” to pause the module over night.
  4. Deactivate the activity: The first step will be to identify what triggers this error, is it when you run a specific tool or does it occurs on all of your activities.

For example, you may see the error only when you run a specific function like Auto-like or Auto-comment. Meanwhile, other functions like Auto Follow and Unfollow are still working perfectly fine.

In this case pause the specific activities for 24 hours while other functions are still running.

  1. Pause entire account activities: If you encounter this error when you perform any function via gramscrape, then you need to pause entire account from performing any task for 24 hours.

Also, you’re advised not to perform any activity on the Instagram official mobile app during this period.

If you have any question regarding this article or the problem persist please contact us.

  1. Reduce Activity Speed: When the pause period in step 2 is finally over, you should set up new activities with a lower speed. If you had been running your campaigns on the Fast speed, switch to the speed before it (Medium).

Run your activities with this reduced speed for at least a week.

  1. Avoid running multiple tasks: To be on a safer side, it is recommended to run single activities for the first few days before and never run more than two activities for the next few weeks.

And when combining multiple activities, always avoid Auto Follow + Auto Unfollow at the same time. This could be risky for your account. You can combine two other activities aside these two.

  1. Always Read your activity log: The purpose of the log page for every activity is to let you how your account is performing these tasks when you follow these logs, you’ll be able to tell when things are not going right. And you can easily deactivate any activity generating too many errors.

Note: Always deactivate any activity that shows any error similar to ‘InstagramAPI\Response\GenericResponse: Feedback required’ to avoid sending more requests to Instagram.

  1. Use a different proxy or clearing account cookies. This can be done using the following steps:
  • Log in to our platform.
  • Navigate to the Accounts page.
  • Select three dots at the upper right corner of the account in question.
  • Click the Edit account button.
  • Add in the new proxy address (if you have any) or select “Only swap the proxy” checkbox and click Save Changes.

Alternatively, select “Only clear cookies” checkbox and click Save Changes.

Instagram (and other social networks) doesn’t know that you are using a proxy, so your trust score increases, there are no blocks, there is no risk of ban, and the IP changes automatically.

  1. Remove and re-add your Instagram account: If you purchased your own proxy address, please remove your Instagram account from our system and re-add it again.

The above suggestions are what worked for many of our users who have come across the Instagram Feedback Required error. It is not necessary to try all of the above as a single one could be a fix to your own issue. Understanding what triggers the error is the key to solving it.

14.2.Your Account Was Compromised

If you got an Instagram in-app notification that says It looks like you shared your password with a service to help you get more likes or followers, which goes against our Community Guidelines. Change your password to continue using Instagram. If you share your new password with one of these services, you may get blocked from following, liking or commenting. and their variations, you are not alone.

Tens of millions of Instagram profiles sees this “Your Account Was Compromised” IG message, whether they indeed participated in inauthentic activities or not.

It will look something like this:

No, this doesn’t mean someone hacked your Instagram account, so don’t panic and instead – read on.

How to solve it?

Here are known ways to stop getting “Your account was compromised” IG message:

  • Give yourself a break from “autofollow” ,“auto-like”  and “auto-comment” activities for at least 72 hours  and a maximum of 7 days.
  • After pausing auto-comment,you can resume by using word variations under comments or DMs.
  • Link your Instagram account with Facebook

Let’s go into more details for each method:

1. Take a break

Since overdosing activity on your Instagram will be the most common reason why you received “Account Compromised” message, it will be a good idea to take a break from following, liking and commenting.

For how long?

We recommend stopping all activities at least for 48 hours although in some cases, the block might last longer, up to 5-7 days.

2. Comment/DM variations

gramplanner.com Provides full support for rotating texts using spinning syntax (or spintax) which is a feature that allows the definition of dynamic text that can change value every time they are published. This allows the construction of more fluid and natural conversations in order to avoid repetitive messages that negatively affect their automation.

To define a rotating text, simply create groups of delimited values between braces (the {and} characters) with the options separated by pipes (the vertical bar |).

An example of spintax is:

  •  {Hi | Hello}, thank you for following my profile on Instagram. It’s {very good | great | cool} to be together here.

This syntax can output any of the following values:

  •  Hi, thanks for following my profile on Instagram. It’s great to be together here.
  •  Hello, thanks for following my profile on Instagram. It’s great to be together here.
  •  Hi, thanks for following my profile on Instagram. It’s cool to be together here.
  •  Hi, thanks for following my profile on Instagram. It’s great to be together here.
  •  Hi, thanks for following my profile on Instagram. It’s great to be together here.
  •  Hi, thanks for following my profile on Instagram. It’s cool to be together here.

Use when you enable Auto Comment ,DM (people) and Welcome DM.

If you haven’t done so yet, try to connect your personal or business Instagram account with your or brand’s Facebook page account.

Often, Instagram accounts that were receive such a message are not associated with any Facebook accounts, and Instagram might see it as a trust issue. Addressing it, you are showing Instagram more credibility that indeed you are a real person using an account and not a bot service.
