Changes to your likes, follows or comments on Instagram
If you notice a change to the number of likes, follows or comments on your account, it may be because some came from accounts generating inauthentic activity.
Sometimes, non-Instagram apps create automated likes, comments and follows to make an account appear more popular than it is. This inauthentic activity goes against Instagram's Community Guidelines. When these accounts are discovered, their activity is removed from Instagram.
We routinely remove disabled accounts to keep Instagram safe. This means related updates to the total number of followers on your account and the total number of accounts you follow may change, even within a short time.
