Over time you can build up a large number of followers on Instagram. You may not be in the realms of Selena Gomez or Cristiano, both of whom have over 250 million followers. But it can be difficult for even a casual Instagram user to keep track of who has followed and unfollowed them.
The native Instagram app does not provide easy ways to manage your followers and keep track of who follows and unfollows you. As a result, developers have created many apps to provide an enhanced interface to assist with managing your followers.
Many of these Instagram followers trackers have similar names and almost identical capabilities. Some focus more on Instagram statistics. We have previously looked in more detail at those apps that provide insight into your Instagram analytics.
Most of the apps we look at here are simple (and free). They can make the life of anybody with more than a few followers decidedly more relaxed.

This app’s name, Tracker for Instagram Followers & Unfollowers, is a good description of what it does. It allows you to find out about the people who follow you (or have recently unfollowed you).
