Auto-Cancel Pending Instagram Follow Requests with InstaFly
We'd like to inform you about a recent change on Instagram regarding pending follow requests. Instagram now has a panel that displays pending follow requests. Pending follow requests, also known as "follow requests" count towards your account's main limit. For example, if you have 7500 pending requests, you won't be able to follow anyone else, as it reaches the maximum limit of 7500 pending requests. Even though it appears that you're following zero people, attempting to send a new follow request will trigger a notification about reaching the limit.
Approximately one month ago, Instagram closed the panel where users could see their pending follow requests. Due to this change, InstaFly now only allows the retrieval of follow requests sent through InstaFly. Follow requests sent through other means, such as on the phone or prior to using InstaFly, cannot be retrieved.
With the compilation version 9405.759 update, we introduced a new method for retrieving pending follow requests. We'd like to provide you with detailed instructions on how to do this.
Firstly, on Instagram, you need to request your data through the "Download Data" page. You can do this by following this link: https://www.instagram.com/download/request/.
Enter your current email address and select HTML as the format. Click "Next."
After clicking "Next," you'll be asked to enter your Instagram account password. Once you've entered your password, proceed with the request.
Within 15 minutes to an hour, you'll receive an email from Instagram titled "Instagram Data Download." Click on the "Download Your Information" button in this email.
On the page that opens, click on the "Download" button under "Download Your Information," and download the .zip file to your desktop.
Unzip the downloaded file, and locate the folder named "followers_and_following."
Enter the "followers_and_following" folder and find the file named "pending_follow_requests.html."
Drag and drop the "pending_follow_requests.html" file to your desktop.
Open InstaFly, log in to your account, and go to Follow Operations > CancelPending Follow Requests.
Click on the "Select Pending Follow Requests File" button and choose the file you just dragged to your desktop.
Your pending follow requests will be loaded, and you can withdraw all requests by clicking "Cancel All Requests."
Please note that keeping pending follow requests is not recommended as it consumes your limit and increases the spam risk when sending new follow requests.
We hope this tool and method help you easily withdraw all your pending follow requests without any issues.
