Transparent Instagram Logo

Time for an Instagram mass unfollow? Is your Instagram full of people that you have followed over the years and you just want a big clear out?

Following on from our guide about How to Mass Unfollow on Twitter, we had been asked how to carry out an Instagram Mass Unfollow using a similar method.

Well, we have been working on this and we now have a solution to carry this out using nothing more than Google Chrome and a bit of clever code.

Instagram Mass Unfollow Instructions

So first of all you will need to be using Google Chrome as your computer internet browser. Then login to the account that you want to instagram mass unfollow on.

When you have successfully logged into your Instagram account, click on the little man icon at the top right of the page:

Instagram Profile

This will then take you to your own profile page. You should see your following number, you should now click this:

Instagram Following

This will bring up a pop-up of all your current followers.

Once you are here, you should now press CTRL+SHIFT+J – this will now bring up the console to the right side of your Google Chrome browser and should look similar to this:

Google Chrome Console

Instagram Mass Unfollow Code

You should then enter two pieces of code – however, one must be done before the other, do not try to run all in one go. So first of all, copy and paste the below script into the console and type the Enter key on your keyboard to execute:

var jq = document.createElement(‘script’);
jq.src = “//”;

This should show something like this (ignore any errors):

Instagram Mass Unfollow

Then you should copy and paste the code below:

var x = 0;
if(x==3) return false;
$(‘._4gt3b’).scrollTop($(‘._4gt3b’)[0].scrollHeight); console.log(‘loop’);
}, 1000);

This should then start the process of Instagram mass unfollow:

Instagram Following List

Instagram No Followers

Depending on how any people you want to unfollow, you may hit Instagram’s limits – if you do, just re-run the above.

Also note that this is a fairly slow process, so if you have loads of people to unfollow, it could take some time.

    If you could help me unfollow 4,000, I can pay you through paypal. My gmail is dara288 I can not get the code to work. My account got hacked when I joined one of those softwares where you can automatically have photos post to your Instagram account. That is how I ended up following people I do not even know. Thanks.

  13. tinus says:


    Not working for me, it looks like it’s working in the left window but doesn t unfollow anybody.

    Is it still running? or maybe the language of google chrome?

    Do you have any idea?

  14. Ren says:

    guys it’s a mess in this way, you can unfollow 1 person every 30 seconds, so that you won’t be stopped by instagram. When instagram block you, you must wait again 24h before you can start again, so you just need to unfollow 1 every 30 seconds. Would be possible for you to paste the same guide with this pause of 30 seconds between two unfollow? thank you very much!

    This is great, saved me so much time. Is there a way to change the script so it follow users. I tried to change the text from “following” to “follow” but it doesn’t seem to follow the users in the pop-up I want to follow.

    not able to paste it in my console

  21. skottmckay says:

    I found that I could do 15 at a time by manual testing (so change ‘if(x==3)’ to ‘if(x==15)’ every 700 seconds (so change the last line in the second script from ‘}, 1000);’ to ‘}, 700000);’

    600 seconds (10 minutes) was not long enough. The second loop would return errors. 700 seconds was stable. It also tends to only delete 10 at a time unless you scroll the Following window down to trigger loading of more entries. With that step it would delete 15 each iteration.

    Successfully deleted a couple of thousand users by letting it run for two days.
