How To Stop Bots Commenting On Your Posts?

The Bots are generally computer-made programs that are used as a proxy of humans to replicate human work. Companies and people use them to do repetitive work that can otherwise consume more time. These bots are created with a unique algorithm and given fixed task reminders. These tasks can be either impersonating a human being by using artificial intelligence or finding useful content on other platforms.

The most common bots we see these days in our day-to-day life are social bots. These bots are used generally to guide a discussion or to comment and like on social media posts. The bot comments are generally used to spam Instagram accounts in order to get them to sign up for some doubtful services or schemes for the sake of money or followers. 

If someone is commenting on your post asking you to “check their story” and you see half-naked women in their profile, it’s probably a spam bot.
