Highly restrictive query limit

It seems the system only allows about 5 queries per day and that is highly restrictive. Especially if you just signed up and not sure how everything works and made a few mistakes, your limit is already up.

I am only trying to query my own SSIDs and see learn where my devices have been picked up in the past. I got one hit linking a device detailing my travel across 2 continents which was quite alarming. I want to see if there are what others Im able to discover but this limit thing is annoying. I think 5 is highly unreasonable, is there any subscription service I can pay to get this raised or is this a bug in the system somehow?

I also just signed up and was only querying my own devices. I got blocked after about 5. It actually only found one of my devices.

Whoa! Only 5 queries?
Is that daily limit or what?
I just tried to find my ssid and already spent the limit??
Why is that?
Cannot find anything in the docs...

newly created accounts have tight restrictions to combat harvesting farms.

these limits increase with signals indicating you're a human with a real use case, instead of a bot network. Note that the base network search limits are higher than that - only network detail queries have such a strict initial limit.

Just my friend show me this service and I tried it too. But got same problem while testing to find my own nodes. How I can prove I am not bot/farm and how can I increase limits? My another goal is build capture device so I would need for it's testing more queries than 5 per day.

Thanks Petr

contributing, not acting like part of a harvesting network, and time/interaction all result in automatic limit increases.

the 5-query limit is only for "detail" searches after recent registration; your normal search query limit is already higher than that.
