Auto-like Instagram posts

Automatically like any post on Instagram to create engagement. Automatically linking Instagram posts is an old, yet, efficient way to get new followers on Instagram. The concept is simple: By auto-liking many pictures, people will receive a notification, visit your profile, and – hopefully – turn into followers.

But to do this properly, you’ll have to be smart when auto-linking posts. Let’s see how.

Auto-like Instagram posts the right way

Your Instagram auto-likes will be effective if you follow these principles:

  • Not too many, not too fast. If you go too fast, Instagram will detect automated behavior. This will result in your cookies being revoked, which will require you to reconnect your account and slow down your automated growth. Follow our recommendations if you want to stay behind those limits.
  • Targeting is key. If your Instagram auto-likes is limited, it means you have to make each one count. Only target Instagram users who are likely to be interested in your content. But how do you find such users? Take a look at the use-cases below.
  • Good timing. Schedule your automated likes to happen when the people you’re targeting are active. Auto-liking when they are active increases, even more, the chances they’ll visit your profile.

How to find good Instagram posts to auto-like?

Auto-like the posts of users who have a track record of liking the topics you deal with. This includes (and is not limited to):

  • Your competitor’s followers. If they’re into what your competition’s doing, they might just be into what you’re about too. You can extract all the followers of your competitors by using another of our automations called Extract Instagram Followers.
  • Specific hashtag. If people are using hashtags related to your niche, they’re likely to be interested in what you’re doing. Find those hashtags, don’t be afraid to niche doing, and extract every post related to this hashtag in order to auto-like them.
  • People commenting on specific posts. Another place of gathering like-minded people is the comment section of Instagram posts. Extract every commenter outs of one of these posts of interest, and like the latest pictures of each Instagram user.

These are just a few ideas, but you’re obviously free to select Instagram posts to auto-like using your own criteria.

Get started with Instagram automated likes

  1. Create a free TexAu account here.
  2. Specify the posts you want to auto-like (see use-cases above).
  3. Run the automation right away, or schedule it for a better time.

How to run Instagram Post Liker on TexAu

Here we will see the steps of the execution & the inputs required for this spice.

The whole execution will play around these 5 input points & the total time to execute this will be around 1-2 minutes, depending on the number of Instagram posts you want to auto-like.

Here’s what each of the input points means:

  1. SessionID: Instagram uses this piece of information to ensure it’s really you who’s using the profile
  2. Post URL: Enter the Post URL in this field. If you have a list of Post URLs in a CSV or a Google sheet. Use that in step 3
  3. Upload a CSV or Link a Google Sheet: Here you can upload a CSV or link a Google sheet. There are some extra steps here & we will cover them in the next section
  4. Like Post: Clicking on this button will immediately start the execution
  5. Schedule this spice: You can choose to schedule this spice to find company IDs

How to like any posts on Instagram?

Once your account is set up, and you have completed the onboarding, visit the Spice page in the app. TexAu acts on your behalf on Instagram to run this automation.

TexAu is the safest automation platform on the web, it uses your Instagram session cookie to authenticate as you to run this automation. We never ask for your login credentials. To make filling session cookies easier, you can use the TexAu Chrome extension. This process only requires 2 clicks.

Download TexAu Extension for Chrome here: TexAu Chrome Extension [Used and loved by over 4000+ customers]

Refresh your automation page and click on the Get Cookie button. Make sure you’re logged in to your Instagram account & the activated chrome extension will do the job.

In case if you are not using Google Chrome, check this guide on how to get cookies manually from your browser. We are working hard to bring our extension to all the major browsers very soon.

Step 2: Upload the CSV or paste Google sheet URL (only if you have multiple post URLs)

If you have a CSV, simply upload it from your PC. If you have a Google Sheet, there are some extra steps.

  • First, paste the Google sheet’s URL.
  • Either get the session cookie or use our chrome extension to do it with the click of a button.
  • Input the column containing the post URLs. Make sure you choose the right column for successful execution.

For the final touch, make sure you have set the sheet as public (as shown below) so the TexAu can access it.

Step 3: Start execution or schedule the automation

Clicking on the Like Post button will immediately start the execution. Based on the number of Post URLs, the execution time will vary.

Scheduling the automation will give you additional points to control the execution. You can choose specific days of the week or month, specific times daily. You can even set a specific start & end time of the execution.

The advantage of automating the whole process is that you don’t have to actively sit in front of your PC while TexAu does its job.

Step 4: Download execution results to your local PC

Once you click on the button, the execution will begin and then you will see the following message in the execution log.

Once you see, click on the ‘Result’ button where you can view your results & download the result as a CSV file as shown below.

Note: Alternatively you can download results from the Results menu on the left-hand navigation, just hover over the menu & click on Results as shown below:

That’s all you need to auto-like posts Instagram post(s).

Limitations & important points to note

  1. You can run this spice 40 times a day & 30 profiles per run, i.e. 120 profiles per day. However, we wouldn’t recommend running this spice for that many profiles. You will have to keep in mind your daily limit. Find those details here.
  2. If you’re using the web version, make sure you toggle the ‘Use Proxy button’. This will require you to add a proxy to your account. If you use the TexAu Desktop app, you don’t have to worry about purchasing a proxy or even setting one.
