Tools to help you detect fake Instagram followers


With the rise of Bots and Telegram groups to buy likes and comments on Instagram, there are tools out there to help you to detect if an Instagram account has fake followers.

But how can you detect if an account is using bots?

  1. Take a look at the account’s comments on other people’s posts. If the comments are repeated, its a sign there’s a bot behind the profile.
  2. Check if the account has too many followers and poor content.
  3. If the account unfollows you after you follow them, this is a sign there is a bot, though this technique is used by many who do not use bots.
  4. If they follow thousands of accounts and only have a few followers, they probably use a bot.

Some of the tools out there are:

IG Audit (Free tool)


Fake Check (Starts at 1$)


Social Audit Pro (Starts at 5$)
