Instacaptain Instagram Growth Service Review

Our Grade – C-

Like most other bot services, this provider lies about most things and there’s very little proof that it works at all.

View our grading methodology.

At a Glance

Instacaptain is an Instagram growth service based in India, though the service claims to be a suite of tools supported by a team of 45 people, it’s just another generic bot service with a single owner.

The website doesn’t pass most of our trust tests and makes some confusing and contradictory claims. Hilariously, though they’ve rebranded recently, they did use to use the headline “Instagram bot which works in 2020.”

Instacaptain has two inexpensive plans. One is for $23 per month and the other is $29.99 per month. Truthfully, this is one of the smallest differences in price that I’ve ever seen. Seems like the only difference for $6 extra is that they’ll turn the knob a little bit and offer slightly better customer support. Remember, this is just a single guy running a bot, so there’s essentially no difference.

Service Details

Instacaptain is, at its core, a bot service. Here’s an archived capture of their homepage:


We do believe that the company has at least one programmer because they’ve pivoted to offering some tools to help you better make sense of your niche on Instagram in addition to the bot. Ultimately, we don’t think that these tools provide enough value to be worth checking out.

Integrity & Reputation

Right off the bat, we’ve got a silly lie:

This service doesn’t have anywhere near 5000 customers. This is fake social proof in order to fool unsuspecting customers. If this was real, they’d have more reviews. About those reviews

The owner of Instacaptain likely just had some of his friends in India write fake reviews.

First of all, this review doesn’t make sense since the website itself claims that they don’t offer a trial. Further, do I really believe that someone named Miranda is working in customer service here? According to Instacaptain, the company has 45 employees!

This is a humungous lie. This picture is a generic picture of some other company taken at some type of conference. Meanwhile, the company has no LinkedIn presence. Have you ever known a company of 45 people in which none of them list their involvement on LinkedIn? Me neither.

The company is located in India. We know this because they provide their address on the privacy policy page.

While doing our initial research, we did uncover a statement listing the founders’ name. It seems that the original source page was edited, but thankfully we had copied the text.

Our brand InstaCaptain is operated by Ankit Srivastava, 27 year old internet entrepreneur who owns a variety of other businesses such as WedoShopify, LaMusiq Android app, Located in India, and launched in 2019. InstaCaptain already has a team of 8 members working 24/7 to provide you with the best service possible.


The site also has one of those generic “featured in…” fib bars.

As usual, we looked up article placements for this company. None of them exist.

However, rather than giving these guys a D-range review, I give them a C, because I like the way this review was responded to.

To be clear, there doesn’t seem to be a single legitimate review left by a satisfied customer.


The price is right, but everything else is pretty suspicious. The service is cheap enough that it might be worth taking a risk on but the untruthfulness is so flagrant that we don’t see any reason to trust this company. Let us know if you’ve had a different experience.
