How to Find and Unfollow Instagram Users Who Are Unfollowing You

When it comes to social media, there's an unspoken rule: one hand washes the other. Adding people to your followlist without seeing an equal increase in the number of people following you can be frustrating, especially if you want to grow your brand and build a reputation.

If you don't get the same attention to the messages you give, you'd be smart to walk away from certain connections and find those who are more likely to reciprocate, show your messages some love, and nurture friendship.

In this article, we are going to show you how to unfollow unfollowing Instagram users.

How to unfollow Instagram users who don't follow you

Some Instagram users go so far as to deploy the follow-unfollow strategy. They will follow you and then secretly follow you after you follow. Finding such users and unfollowing them can be a good way to clean up your account.

Let's see how you can go about it.

How to manually find unfollowers on Instagram

Instagram has made it easy to unfollow anyone on your follow list if they don't follow back. You can do this from your following list or from the user's profile.

(a) Unsubscribing users from your subscriber list

This approach allows you to find and unfollow unfollowers without leaving your profile. Here's how:

  1. Open your profile and go to your subscriber list.
  2. Scroll down the list to see if the name of the user in question appears.

If the user is not in the list, you can easily open your subscriber list and click on the "Unsubscribe" button next to their name. If you do this, you will no longer see their posts in your feed.

By default, Instagram shows a list of accounts you interact with frequently and a separate list of accounts that rarely appear on your feed. Therefore, focusing on the latter can be a good strategy if you want to know if someone has called.

That said, someone in the "least interacted with" category doesn't mean they haven't followed. They may be in this category simply because they haven't been active on Instagram.

The problem with this approach is that you may have to remember the name of the user you are looking for before scrolling down the list.

(b) Unsubscribe users from their profile

If you don't want to memorize names and keep going back and forth between your follower list and your follower list to tell who hasn't followed, you can easily open their profile and find out if your name is on their subscriber list. . Here's how:

  1. Visit the profile of the user in question and open their list of followers.
  2. Scroll down the list looking for your name. You can also tap the search bar at the top of the list, then enter your name to start a quick search.

If your name is not on the list, then this user is unfollowed.

How to Use a Third-Party Service to Find Unfollowing Users

One of the most daunting tasks on Instagram is manually unfollowing unfollowers, especially if you have thousands of followers. It can be tedious to click through the profiles of everyone you follow looking for users who haven't reciprocated. Fortunately, there are plenty of third-party tools that can help automate this process.

Let's see how the most popular tools work:

(a) Combine

Some people like the “follow to follow, then unfollow” dance. They may even fill their feed with “follow to follow” messages in an attempt to convince you to unfollow you after you start following them. It can be unpleasant, annoying, and can stunt your brand growth.

With Combin, you can instantly detect unfollowed accounts and even unfollow them altogether.

Here's how it works:

  1. Download the Combin app and install it on your PC, Mac or Linux.
  2. After installation, launch the app and enter your Instagram credentials to log into your account.
  3. Select "Users" from the navigation menu on the left.
  4. Click "Next". This should show all the users you are currently following.
  5. Click "No Followers". This will reveal a list of everyone who has unfollowed you.
  6. To unfollow a user in the "Unfollowers" list, simply click the circular box next to their name, then select "Unfollow".
  7. To unfollow users as a whole, click "Select All", then select "Unfollow".

(b) Subscribers-Unfollowers

Followers-Unfollowers is a free tool that helps you identify unfollowed Instagram users. It comes with a clean and intuitive user interface that gives you a complete overview of your account in seconds. You also get notifications when someone starts following you or unfollows you.

As soon as you install the app, you need to log in with your Instagram credentials. After that, the app automatically generates user statistics for your account. This includes a list of your followers, those who unfollowed you, and users you didn't follow yourself. You can unfollow one user at a time, but you can also unfollow many accounts in bulk at the touch of a button.

The app has garnered over 5 million downloads on Google Play, which shows how widespread its use is. These numbers also likely indicate how much trust the app enjoys in an otherwise crowded market.


It's time to clean up your feed and only follow people who like you back. If someone isn't following you on Instagram, they're probably not worth a spot in your feed. You can unsubscribe guilt-free because you are simply being proactive with your branding.

It's also important to note that Instagram's terms of service are quite strict and any action deemed inauthentic may put your account at risk of being closed or suspended. Using third-party apps to bulk unsubscribe users is particularly risky, so it is recommended to unsubscribe one by one.
