Remove Instagram “Try again later” feature
“Try again later” appears when the Instagram app monitors feel like a user is doing something inappropriate or trying to perform an action too quickly. This can happen during a power outage.
This is one of Instagram’s preventive measures and is designed to prevent users from spamming other users’ posts. It also keeps bots away from the website.
The “Try again later” warning may also appear if a user repeatedly comments on the same profile or if many people report the same profile.
In certain circumstances, the message is caused by a fault or a widespread outage.
