    5/20 of my accounts were banned in the past few days, after 10 months of FL. 4 accounts have around 15k followers. i have been doing nothing but follow/unfollow (500/500 per day) with occasional posting like once every 2 weeks. one account has only been liking 1000 a day, never followed anybody, and was at 2000 followers. this account has an affiliate link in bio, and hasnt posted in 3 months. the 5 accounts are on 5 different ips.

    i have never even got an email from instagram? the chance of getting hacked was small, given 5/20 at once.

    i have the best proxies because its 100% dedicated (my own IPs, better than any proxies that can be purchased).

    i got a total of 2 captcha in 10 months. i have not got a PV in like 4 months. i have not got a password reset in half a year.

    what could have caused it? why havent i even received an email?

    sour grape?
    i never claim to be an expert in IG. as a matter of fact, i am not even an expert in gaining followers or engagement. evidently though i do know something you don't. plus if you are making some money, there is always something to worry about. you dont have to worry if you are not making any obviously.

    btw, why would that have anything to do with accounts getting banned? i am not even using (most of) them to make money.

    it could because Instagram knowing you are using software, reports, or they just want to LOL. You may try appealing to them to lift the ban, but there's a minimal chance that they will lift it tho.

    so when you try to login to the account you get the "this shit doesn't exist" message?

    i have never tried to.
    first i get "this page does not exist" while checking a post in a browser. then i went on to check FL, and see those accounts have "error" in the "health" column.

    Sucks but its part of the game i suppose. Since its just 5 accounts from 20 could it be bad proxies?

    For the second one, couldn't be for 1000 likes a day. Instagress in fast mode give about 1000 likes per day and I never heard someone get banned after using it.

    I got all of my 16 accounts phone verify yesterday. After verified,5 accounts got banned. The reason is i logged in all of them with the same ip :(

    all my accounts are set to like 1k a day, for 10 months.
    now i have stopped all FL for now. i wonder though if lack of activity can be a problem too...?

    Can you try other software? I have the same issue with Followliker but developer keep insisting the issue does not lie with the software. I have no such issue with massplanner though.

    i have been extremely careful whenever i login to post or make any changes. i make sure i stop FL, logout and close IG app, change proxy on my phone, check my ip.

    i never got a PV though, no email, no nothing. just suddenly accounts gone...?
    all have different passwords. 2 still use the .ru email - i never changed anything since i bought the accounts. still 3 accounts were created by myself.. so i dont think its a hack.

    Just give a different software a try since it is at the troubleshooting stage to idenitfy cause of issue.

    Even if you were being as careful as you are saying, it seems like it still could have been IP related.
