Instamate and Instaeasy Shutdown!

11 replies
What happened to these 2 services? Looks like Instagram shut them down.

Is anyone a member and can comment if they still work or not? Maybe Luke can comment himself?

What other alternatives are there for Instagram automation that still work?

Also... do you prefer automation or just doing everything manually?

Thank you.

    IG is going after all these big software creators big time, as it happened with Mass Planner. Right now the only sure way is to grow your pages manually and not use too many tags or the same tags every-time.

      Or use a local bot that you can purchase or software which has off-shore hosting and payments so they tell IG to **** off.

    FB and IG also going after mass planner. They mean business. I have a free Twitter bot on my website and I'm always worried I'm going to get a c&d letter :-p

    Wow...I didn't know this! I had almost purchased instamate when it came out! I sure hope Luke is taking care of his customers. I hear some of his other software titles are in need of some updates as well.

    i have instamate 2.0 and is working fine. instamate is only used a a dashboard for your platform/niche research. i dont use instaeasy, because the software i use i have been using for 2 years with no issue.. the prob with web based software is the use of the api which access can easily be restricted by instagram.

    the old school automation using proxy switching is still effective
    i know from experience...

    I think it's time to reconsider the IG strategy and start growing our communities with valuable content and pictures.

    Currently, I'm growing manually the pages and trying to create more stories and IG live.

    I have both instaeasy and instamate and can report that they are both still working, though I noticed recently that they seem to be closed today new customers. Hope they resolve this, as I had a nice funnel referring people to them. Gutted.

      That's interesting. I assumed if they got shutdown by Instagram that they would have to shutdown everything. Good they still work! I hope they reopen.

    Thanks for the info and advice everyone. I heard good things about Luke's products and did want to test them out. I'll have to do some more research for possible automation I can use.

    Well, even though it is unfortunate that these services closed down, there are, nonetheless, plenty more substitutes and you can always hire a programmer to code a simple bot for you and maintain it.

  • Faced same issue. But I reduced the number of tags and it helped.
