Our Grade – D+
Unique business that manipulated its Trustpilot reviews to such an extreme that it was removed from Trustpilot.
At a Glance
Mr. Insta is a very unique Instagram growth service. The concept behind the service is that you can either allow your account to be part of a botnet that likes other customer’s accounts and gets a few likes in return, or you can pay to get a larger amount of these actions directed toward your account.
This type of service can be hard to understand if you don’t have a software background, but the scheme can, in theory, work pretty well. For free–for no money–you can sign up to be in an automated engagement group where you’ll engage with other customers of Mr. Insta. Some of those customers will be on the free plan like you, others will be paying for higher numbers of likes.
The accounts, hopefully, are real, but the engagement, when obtained this way, is completely fake.

This service offers free tiers where you can get small amounts of “real” (private botnet) followers in exchange for participating in the botnet. You can also pay low monthly fees to get more traffic from the botnet. Nothing is organic.
We already said it above, but nothing is organic with this service. For them to guarantee followers, they control all of the accounts. With enough customers, it might work! Without enough customers, this service is a disaster. Worst of all, you’ll still be subject to blocks from Instagram while using this service.
Integrity & Reputation
In an earlier note, we opined that Mr. Insta had an incredibly large amount of fake reviews on Trustpilot. Today, we noticed that their account has been suspended by Trustpilot.
That doesn’t really build confidence, now does it?
You can also see manipulative activity on SiteJabber.
Yeah, okay. Are they at least honest about what they’re offering?
They don’t mention that their “free” users are what make their paid products possible. They act like this is some type of charity.
They change their tune a bit here, but don’t acknowledge that this massive circle jerk is useless since you are 100% sure that each person only cares about their own following. There is nothing organic about this and most of the people will probably unfollow you as soon as they’re able to.
They also offer tons of other spammy bot services. We can’t even fit them all onto our screen.
Finally, for such a purportedly well-liked and successful provider, they offer no information about where they’re located or who is behind the service. I don’t have any speculation to offer here. I just don’t know who is behind this one
This is a dishonest and opaque service that shouldn’t be trusted. All accounts essentially become part of a private botnet where you can be guaranteed that your “followers” while “real” will only be interacting with you because a computer program forced them to. This is, essentially, a coin app with a prettier website.
