UPDATE August 22nd
Despite being shut down by Instagram last month – After doing some basic research it appears SocialDrift is trying to game Instagram!
If you load Social Drift from a country outside of America you will notice that you can simply sign up and it works perfectly for you.
So from my understanding, Social Drift is trying to trick Instagram into believing they are complying with their request to close – However they have only stopped accepting customers in the USA (Where Facebook Inc, & Instagram are based).
You can easily turn on a VPN and sign up for Social Drift.
I would proceed with extreme caution when signing up to Social Drift, as Instagram (‘Facebook Inc’) has ordered them to close down for legal reasons.
I would recommend using a reliable, trusted and compliant growth service that will not harm your Instagram in anyway.
UPDATE July 31st
SocialDrift is not accepting new customers due to operational changes.
This is the message that greeted SocialDrift‘s customers this morning.
This might come as a shock to many – but it’s nothing new. These types of services are regularly shut down by Instagram. In April 2018, Instagress was closed and masses of people went looking for an alternative – and since then, many services have followed suit and been forced to close on a regular basis. Just a few weeks ago, Boostfy was shutdown.
Most people just jump from one service to another. The key is to find an effective replacement that isn’t risky.
The operations over at SocialDrift had a murky background at best. And now they have been shutdown alongside their other websites such as ViralUpgrade and Instaheap. So finding an alternative isn’t the worst thing that can happen to you in this case.
Easier said than done.
I've been around the Internet space for 20 years now, so naturally, I've seen a lot of companies come and go.If you're searching for a replacement for this tool with a similar site or service, or you're simply looking for an alternative, I've reviewed all the top service providers for Instagram, and these are the ones that have stood out to me.

The ever-increasing popularity of automating social media activities, especially on Instagram and Facebook is driving business owners to automation software like Social Drift for handling their social media tasks.
There is an ongoing debate regarding whether or not to use such automation or bots for social media activities due to violating the ToS of social channels.
This review will help sort out this debate and help you make an informed decision.
SocialDrift is your average Instagram bot that can be configured to perform all the basic functions you would normally do manually on the social media platform.
It allows for likes, comments, follows, and the other functions you expect this automation to provide.
Just like other Instagram growth services on the market, this one also claims to perform these tasks to help grow your presence organically.
Claims like its affiliation to top brands like Forbes and McDonald’s raises red flags and eyebrows amongst influencers. They also use the claim that they are “Recognized and used by over 10,000 plus successful clients and brands.”
- Smart filters to target users by username, hashtags, locations, and more.
Activity automation that you customize to meet your needs, then the program
does it for you.
- Grows your base at “blazing” fast speeds while the program handles the tasks
24/7 to level up your Instagram presences.
- Turbo Mode is designed to speed up the growth process.
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) to optimize the appearance of real engagement.
- SecureBoost is their boosting engine that they use to grow your account.
- The premium account offers a dedicated proxy.
- Growth reports to keep an eye on the growth of your account.
- Instagram ToS compliance is a feature that is supposed to keep your account safe from being banned.
These features are taken right from the website, paraphrased, of course.
Social Drift offers a free 3-day trial and then a subscription for 7 days or 30 days.
On the surface, this program is self-proclaimed as safe, but there are some problems
reported by users. They use a lot of elaborate language to skirt around the fact that they are a basic Instagram bot service.
- For instance, its claim that it is affiliated with Forbes is questionable since Forbes doesn’t advocate social media automation in this article.
- Entrepreneur does give it a mention in an article about Instagram Tools for 2018, but it is just an article mentioning 9 other tools as well.
- IG Reviews has received dozens of customer complaints about this program.
- RepDigger gives Social Drift an poor reputation score of 34 percent with some eye-opening user comments on the site.
- This user on Medium claims it is a scam.
- This user on Reddit claims it is a scam.
As far as this reviewer is concerned, the red flags and other included information leads to the impression that Social Drift is not a safe bot for your Instagram account despite its wild claims of endorsement & touted functional features.
