What your Instagram account can be banned for?

This is the text for the paranoid, or rather for those who are very very afraid that his account will be banned. As for the messages about cleaning the users, which everybody saw, this applies to bot networks. Instagram carries out such sweep every year, no need to panic, it is unlikely that you will fall under it, so as usual this applies to networks of 1000 bots.
