Instagram has taken steps to fight the fake followers, especially those using automation and third party apps to generate accounts and followers.

Starting today, we will begin removing inauthentic likes, follows and comments from accounts that use third-party apps to boost their popularity. We’ve built machine learning tools to help identify accounts that use these services and remove the inauthentic activity.
