How to unsubscribe from everyone on Instagram
If you periodically use mass following to promote and the number of subscriptions is inexorably creeping up, this article is especially for you. Why is it worth it to periodically clean up, and how to unsubscribe from everyone on Insta in one fell swoop? Let’s find out!
Why remove Instagram subscriptions
There are several good reasons :
- Instagram has set a limit according to which you can only follow 7,500 users. Therefore, sooner or later your promotion will stop at about this mark, so in order to subscribe to new users, you will have to sacrifice the old ones.
- A dramatic imbalance between subscribers and subscriptions can cause rejection among followers and negatively affect conversions. When a user sees an account that is subscribed to, say, 7,000 profiles, but has at most 500 users in his subscribers, this automatically lowers the level of trust.
- The huge number of subscriptions could result in losing your really important content.
According to statistics, users are more willing to contact, provided that the number of subscriptions and subscribers is at least the same.
How to unsubscribe from everyone on Instagram
Instagram has not yet come up with a miracle function that allows you to unsubscribe from everyone at once, but in the following sections we will tell you about tools that will help you not to waste time on routine actions.
How to quickly unsubscribe from followers on Instagram via computer
The innovative service Instaplus will help you with this. It is enough to adhere to a simple algorithm:
- Register on the platform and go to the “Create a task” section .
- Select an account to promote.
- From the options provided, select Unsubscribe . A warning about limits will be displayed at the bottom. Instaplus advises not to unsubscribe from more than 1,000 users per day if you unsubscribe from non-reciprocal users (and from more than 700 users if you unsubscribe from reciprocal ones).
- Next, select who you are planning to unsubscribe from (the available options are all, mutual, non-reciprocal, private unaccepted, block by list ).
- Enter the number of accounts you want to unsubscribe from (don’t forget about the limits). We recommend that you check the box next to “Unsubscribe from old users first” . Many users may not visit the social network every day, which means that those you subscribed to yesterday, most likely, have not yet seen a notification about your actions.
- The setting “Unsubscribe only from those that Instaplus subscribed to” is useful if you have people in your subscriptions that you have unsubscribed from manually.
- Adjust the filter if necessary. We’ll explain how to do this in the next section.
- Set a timer for the task.
- Check if all fields are filled in correctly and click “Run Job”.
How to set up a filter?
Let’s take a closer look at the main parameters:
- The number of subscribers the user has . For example, if you specify “from 2,000”, then the service will unsubscribe only from those users who have more than 2,000 followers.
- The number of user subscriptions . This filter parameter allows you to specify the exact number of following the user you want to unsubscribe from.
- Number of publications . We recommend that you specify “up to 10” here.
- Last posted by this user . Leave this field blank so that the program does not unsubscribe from the active audience.
- Avatar presence . You can choose “no”. Then the service will unsubscribe only from profiles without photos.
- User gender . For example, if you need to unsubscribe from men, choose “male”.
- Exclude commercial accounts . Choose the item “it doesn’t matter”. If you choose yes, the program will unsubscribe from all but commercial pages.
- Exclude languages . You can choose “Cyrillic” to unsubscribe from all accounts that use foreign languages in the description.
- Stop words . If you enter, for example, “fashion”, then the service will skip and will not unsubscribe from profiles whose description or name contains this word.
- White words . In this case, the opposite is true.
Via mobile apps
Want to unsubscribe from everyone in one fell swoop? Then catch a few handy smartphone apps that automate the process and save you from routine actions.
This can be done using the application with the laconic name Followers – Unfollowers (the function of viewing unsubscribed, choosing the number of unsubscribes, profile guests from stories) and, unlike most analogues, it is absolutely free. Followers – Unfollowers is powered by the official Instagram API, which allows the platform to remotely access your followers list.
The only negative is the presence of ads.
To unsubscribe from non-reciprocal followers:
- download and install the application;
- log in using your account login and password;
- wait while the system calculates the number of non-reciprocal followers;
- click “Unsubscribe from all 20 from the top” (or “from the bottom”).
The application will automatically unsubscribe for the specified number of users. Restrictions are set so that Instagram does not see anything criminal in your actions and does not block your profile. You can repeat the procedure after 20 minutes.
If this application does not suit you for some reason, you can use Cleaner for Instagram or Insta mass unfollow , which work identically. However, there are limitations.
For example, Cleaner for Instagram allows you to unsubscribe for 50 users in the free version, while Insta Mass unfollow has even stricter limits (only 20 followers).
There are many apps in the iOS App Store and Play Store that claim to be able to remove multiple subscriptions at the same time. But perhaps the most effective is InstaClean.
How to use it? Everything is extremely simple:
- open the app and select “Login with Instagram”;
- in a new window, enter your login and password for your Instagram account, click “Log in”;
- you will see a list of users you are subscribed to;
- then click on the profile icon of the person (or several) you want to unsubscribe from to select them.
- after you have made your selection, click on the checkmark icon located in the upper right corner and select “Unfollow” in the menu that opens.
- the application will ask for confirmation, so if you are sure of your actions, click on the “Unfollow” button.
- Once the uninstallation process is complete, you will be presented with a list of users you have subscribed to.
How to unsubscribe from all users without using applications and special services? The answer is no, so you have to resort to the manual method. To do this, go to your profile, click “Subscriptions” and next to the account you need, click on the “You are subscribed” box to cancel the action.
At the same time, it should be understood that it will not be possible to quickly delete all subscriptions on Instagram, since the developers of the social network have set strict limits, which we will discuss below.
Limits and restrictions
Bulk unsubscribing on Instagram should be played at certain limits , exceeding which threatens you with blocking. You can subscribe to a maximum of 7,500 users, and unsubscribe from no more than 1000 non-reciprocal profiles and no more than 700 mutual (per day).
Also, the number of allowed unsubscriptions depends on the age of the account. If your profile is less than 6 months old, then the allowed maximum is 200-300 unsubscriptions per day.
The average unsubscription interval is 40-60 seconds. To avoid a ban, the page owner must make a mandatory pause (at least 12 hours) if the subscription is canceled manually. When the limit is reached, a notification “Action blocked” will appear, which cannot be ignored.

- In the window that opens, specify the name of the list, insert the logins and click “Save”.
- Next, go to the “Create a task” tab, select your account, click the “Unsubscribe” and “Block by list” items.
- Select your list from the dropdown menu. It is imperative to indicate the number of locks within the established limits.

How to unsubscribe from everyone automatically?
This can be done using the Instaplus service or mobile applications (for example, InstaClean and Followers – Unfollowers).
Why purge subscriptions?
Firstly, a large number of subscriptions makes the account “spam” and reduces the level of trust on the part of the audience, and secondly, the network administration provides for certain limits, which are prohibited to exceed. Therefore, in order to be able to subscribe again, you need to donate someone.
Timely deletion of subscriptions is important not only for the aesthetic balance of statistics in the profile, but also for increasing the effectiveness of promotion. It is advisable to clean it every 2 days, otherwise you run the risk of overgrowing with a huge number of non-reciprocal subscriptions, which will be extremely difficult to get rid of due to the strict Instagram limits.
