How to Batch Unfollow on Instagram?

As you might have a lot of people not following you, it’s not that easy to find people manually and then unfollow them. In this context all you have do is just use the app given below and it will do the work for you.

I have personally used the app myself for more than 1 year and it works fine without any issue. Initially, the app allowed us to unfollow 20 people in a single click and you could even unfollow up to 100 people in a go. After the new Instagram algorithm change, the app has limited the number to just 5 people at a time.

The app that we are about to use is available on the Play Store and App Store. The steps will be pretty much similar on Android as well as iOS.

Repeat the process with at least 1 hour interval and you can easily unfollow everyone not following you.

Bonus tip: You can easily whitelist people from not being unfollowed using the star icon next to the username of people. You can use this feature to still keep on following celebrities and other people.

That’s it. We have successfully unfollowed pretty much everyone who is not following us on Instagram. If you have a lot of people not following you back then it will take a lot of time.

You should check back once in a while to find recent unfollowers and easily unfollow them as well.

We are required to use third-party apps like these as there is no built-in option on Instagram that lets us do so. Even Instagram Plus do not have this option. But recently, Instagram introduced a new section on the app where it shows people you have least interacted with. This will let you easily unfollow people right from the Instagram app. To access this, just go to your Follower list, and now, you will find an option like in the screenshot below.

The process is pretty much the same for iOS as well. Only the UI and layout might differ a little bit.

Using this method, you can unfollow everyone not following you on Instagram. Do not overdo the process as you might get a temporary action block issue.

For some reasons, if the apps mentioned above does not work for you, here are some alternatives that you can try:
