How to stop following everyone on Instagram

Failing to follow all the contacts in Instagram can be very difficult, especially for those who follow a lot of people. Therefore, there are applications that automate this task. One is the Followers Assistant, an Android app that performs this and other actions automatically. The service has paid resources, but zeroing the list of people you follow is among the free options.

To perform the procedure, it is recommended that you download your account data on Instagram before. So, even if there is an error, you can recover your photos and videos. The tutorial was done on a Moto G5S Plus phone with Android Oreo, but can be played on any device running Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) onwards.

Step 3. Use the "+" or "-" buttons to enter the number of people you want to stop following. Since Instagram's terms of use prohibit automatic actions, put a maximum of 200 so that the social network does not identify the action as spam and, consequently, block your account. Then press the "Stop Follow" button and see the progress of the app by not following the profiles;

Step 4. Since the account used for this tutorial followed only 145 profiles (that is, less than 200), at the end of the procedure the list of people following in the Followers Assistant was zeroed. If you follow more people than this, wait at least an hour to repeat the procedure. Go to your Instagram account and see that the number in "Following" has been updated.
