####1) Login: Login automatic, as followed, by creating the InstaBot class element:

bot = InstaBot('login', 'password',
                tag_list=['cat', 'car', 'dog'],
                tag_blacklist=['rain', 'thunderstorm'],

                max_like_for_one_tag = 5,
                unfollow_break_min = 15,
                unfollow_break_max = 30,
                log_mod = 0,
Parameter Type Description Default value Example value
login str your instagram username python_god
password str your instagram password python_god_password
like_per_day int how many likes the bot does in 1 day 1000 500
media_max_like int don’t like if media has more than … likes 0 100
media_min_like int don’t like if media has less than … likes 0 5
follow_per_day int how many users to follow in 1 day 0 100
follow_time int how many times passes before the bot unfollows a followed user (sec) 5 * 60 * 60 60 * 60
unfollow_per_day int how many user unfollows the bot does in day 0 100
comments_per_day int how many comments the bot writes in a day 0 50
tag_list list list of tag the bot uses [‘cat’, ‘car’, ‘dog’] [‘moto’, ‘girl’, ‘python’]
tag_blacklist list list of tags the bot refuses to like [] [‘rain’, ‘thunderstorm’]
user_blacklist dict don’t like posts from certain users {} {‘hellokitty’:“, ‘hellokitty3’:”}

####2) Set likes and unlike: How many likes set bot in one day. Default value is 1000 likes per 24 hours. If you want to do more than 1000 likes in day - instagram can ban you. Usually this bot is used 247 and it’s default setup to distripute 1000 likes in day evenly. If you want more likes in one moment, set this parameter to 5000 or 10000 or more. Formula: set like with delay = (24 hour * 60 minute * 60 second / like_per_day) ######Be careful, don’t set more than 1000 like in day or you can be banned! Be warned!!


Don’t like media (photo or video) if it have more than media_max_like likes. media_max_like = 0 will ignore this property. If media have too much likes - your like have not feedback. Don’t like media (photo or video) if it have less than media_min_like likes. media_min_like = 0 will ignore this property.


Tag list to like.

tag_list = ['cat', 'car', 'dog']

Like 1 to max_like_for_one_tag times by row.


You can like one tag:


Like 4 times:


Or you can choose auto_mod (like all tags from setting by loop):


For unlike:


####3) Set comments:

bot.comment('media_id', 'comment')

For example:

bot.comment(11111111111111111111, 'Cool!')

####4) Follow and unfollow: Follow:




For example (follow and unfollow user with id 111111111):


####5) Else: Log mod: log_mod=0 log to console, log_mod=1 log to file, log_mod=2 no log.

log_mod = 0

unfollow_break_min / unfollow_break_max: These define the randomly selected amount of time in seconds that it will pause between unfollows on a break. Example:

unfollow_break_min = 15
unfollow_break_max = 30

This will cause a delay of anywhere between 15 to 30 seconds between every unfollow. ####6) Logout from exist session:
