But, the fact is that these are all fake. Now, Instagram has decided and announced that it will remove these fake likes, followers, and comments from the accounts. They will remove these fake likes, comments, and followers from the account of that person who uses a third-party app to appear popular by showing a large number of likes, comments, and followers on their account.




The Instagram will do so by making use of its machine learning tools that will help in identifying these fake accounts which use such services. The company will send these account holders who use these service to increase their popularity on Instagram, an in-app warning message from the Instagram for removal of all these fake likes, followers and comments. And, in addition to these, they will get the alert message to change their passwords for securing their accounts so that their account is safe from any unauthorized access by third-party apps and services and their login credentials will not be used by the third party services for likes, follows and comments.
