One way is to identify the unreal followersof your Instagram page without the help of any tools and then manually remove them from the list of your followers.

How to Detect Fake Instagram Followers

Fake followers often do not have a meaningful username, any profile pictures and any posts, and the number of their followings is much more than the number of their followers. To identify unreal followers of your page, you should examine each of your followers based on these parameters; That means you have to click on the people you suspect and enter their profile and then check how many followers they have, whether they have a post, etc.

Obviously, this method is tedious and practically impossible in many regards. But do not worry! In the following, we will introduce you to a faster method in which a bot has been used for this operation.

Remove Fake Instagram Followers Through Apps & Sites

In this method, you use apps and sites that can help you to remove fake followers to some extent. Most of the time when you are looking for a solution to remove fake followers in Google search, Google directs you to use apps and sites to remove your fake followers, but the thing you need to know is that none of these apps and sites work properly! They do not automatically detect and delete fake followers, and it is up to you to identify the list of fake followers.

What many of these apps and sites actually do is providing analytical statistics from your Instagram page. For example, it shows you how many followers and followings you have, how many posts you have and what your important hashtags are, which of the Instagram accounts you follow do not follow you,which one your followers do not like your posts and do not leave comments for you. Based on this information, you can identify fake followers.

After preparing the list of fake followers of your Instagram page, you can use Profile Chief Insta Insights APP. This application allows you to delete 50 fake followers at once instead of deleting fake followers one by one.

Some apps and sites also charge money to provide such information or you have to buy a subscription. As a result, if you have a large number of fake followers, it is recommended that you use Remove fake Instagram followers Bot that we have introduced below. This will save you time.

Important Note: Be aware that there are some apps and sites that ask for your account username and password to remove fake followers from your Instagram account. In such cases, you should not trust these sites and applications and provide them with your username and password.

As a result of the report that this bot will provide to you in an Excel file, it will be determined whether each of your followers has a profile picture or not, how many posts, followers and followings they have, their page is public or private and what is the information in their bio page.

Step 3
By obtaining this Excel file, you can easily filter the IDs in this list based on the factors that represent a fake follower (Filter is a Microsoft Excel option).
