What is a Whitelist?

When you sign up an account to Instagram, you are given the option of unfollowing people who you currently follow

This is done to allow us to keep the number of people you follow at the optimal level to get the most followers.

However, sometimes people don’t mind unfollowing lots of people- but want to remain following specific people no matter what. This is where the whitelist comes in.

A whitelist is simply a list of usernames that we will never unfollow. It is a good place to put your parents, friends, siblings, clients and others who may other wise notice, care or be offended if you unfollowed them.

To add accounts to your whitelist, log into the client portal and click “Add To Whitelist”
