    Today morning to my surprise, 5 out of 6 accounts were banned. All the accounts were phone verified using different Sim Cards and were running on separate proxies. 1 proxy per account. I had even made sure that I created all the accounts using different device ID. They were all in the same niche and it was not adult. 4 out of 6 accounts were new and other 2 accounts are over 3 weeks old. I had set FL setting to follow 100-150 per day and like 150-200 pics. What could I have possibly done wrong??

    Yes all accounts had links and all linked to different domains. 6 domains for 6 accounts all pointing to different nameservers. But the content of all the sites were exactly the same

    I'm not sure that IG digs quite that deep to connect accounts.

    Instagram is too strict at the moment. Not easy to manage them safely. My accounts banned already. Sad !

    That's why you need to eliminate risk wherever possible, in this case the risk the OP didn't eliminate is the duplicate content on each site, that's the only common denominator linking each of the accounts to one another. Be smart, use one IP per account, different domain names, unique content and uniqe niches and you shouldn't have to worry about being banned (As long as you're not over following/unfollowing users).

    Well the content has to remain same and tons of other IG profiles are using the exact same content as mine!!! Its just a script like CoC


    Private IG proxies.


    Damn!!! How many accounts were banned? This is my 11th account that got banned from last 2 weeks.


    The content has to remain same and tons of other people are using the exact same content. Infact 1 domain which didn't get banned is also having the same content as the other 5 domains which got banned.

    That's another reason. ;) You probably are using cpa+coc like niche and people reported your account.

    I'm running the same script on other accounts too without any problem. And I dont think people reported all accounts at once and there were just 2 days old

    IG has been on a banning spree for the past 4 days, just a week ago I was making $100 a day and now I'm down to $0 and most my accounts are banned for having a link. Well it was fun while it lasted now on to the next money making method.

    Yesterday they banned a testing account with redirect to facebook.com :D
    All others are ok so far.
    I think they have improved crawlers and they start forcing signin with fb :S

    You cannot link to a site from a post only the bio.
