Archie has been shutdown. Users have today woken up to this message on the Archie website:
Archie is being discontinued due to a request from Instagram and is no longer accepting new clients.
If you’re looking for a replacement, I recommend using Follow Adder as the best Archie alternative.
Why was Archie shutdown?
If you were using one of these apps or websites to automate your Instagram account, then you have probably been left hanging.
Make no mistake – Instagram is on a warpath to shut down these bots. It started with a wave of bad publicity about Instagress, and Instagram is slowly taking out these other bots too.
What Archie Alternatives Are There?
Bots that are being run from a central location (i.e. these web based bots such as Instagress and Archie), are slowly being shut down one after the other. It’s not hard to imagine your account or the service being flagged, if the service is based – for example – in America, and you are in Asia, or anywhere else.
So forget them.
If you want something safe, you need to either build your own private bot, or purchase a bot that you can run from your own computer. This keeps negative attention away from your account and the service, as there is nothing suspicious about a bot running from your IP address.
A Private Instagram Bot
|I also have exclusive access to a private Instagram bot that will be going live in a few weeks. |
I won't be posting this bot publicly by request of the developer, but I will be sending the details out to my mailing list.
You can add your email to my list to the right, and I'll let you know as soon as it's ready!
Download Follow Adder
As mentioned earlier, you can download and run Follow Adder from your computer (or from a VPS if you want). It’s got the same stuff that the web based Instagram bots had:
• Easy installation and setup
• Completely customisable
• Scheduling of automated image posts
• Searches by hashtag, location, user, and other methods
• Automated direct messaging
• Automated video and photo liking
• Automated comments
• Automated Follow
• Automated Unfollow
If you’re feeling left behind by the loss of Mass Planner, Instagress, or Archie, make sure you check out Follow Adder as an alternative.
