I can't follow more than 600 users on Instagram from Android device, but Instagram's web interface allows me to follow more than 600; I followed 10 more users from web interface.

On mobile, when I tap "Follow", it says "Following", but then it immediately goes back to "Follow".

I have Instagram version 7.3 on Android Lollipop 5.0

My mobile's WiFi is working fine and I did not exceed their follow/unfollow or like/unlike limit per hour. I tried these solutions but none of them worked:

  • Waited 1 week with no activity on Instagram, just viewed the feed
  • Logged out > uninstalled app > restarted Android device > installed
    app > logged in
  • How many followers did you have?

Instagram lifted the restriction on my account and now I'm able to follow more people from android. I did not contact them though but the restriction was auto lifted after few weeks.

There was a temporary restriction on the account for some unknown reason that is most probably only known to instagram tech team because I did not exceed their follow/unfollow or like/unlike limit.

During this period I found same complaints from other instagram users on internet.
