    Don't know if you've tried this, but are you using an IP that is in the same city as the account holder? If not, that is your problem. IG is getting very strict. No more, account holder signed in in Manhattan, but you're in New Jersey, across the river.

    Or, they are in Orlando, FL and you are in Winter Park, FL only a few miles away.

    I haven't been experiencing these issues, maybe you logged into the account(s) from an iPhone that has been flagged, and because of this they're flagging all accounts they determine you're using? That's just a guess, but it's important to leave as little footprints as possible.. because a mistake on one account, can result in all the accounts they can determine you running being flagged as well. What are your settings like.. aggressive, moderate? Emulating human like behavior can go a long way. Alot of people are in a rush, and think attempting to follow and like thousands of people/pictures on account/per day is the way to go.. when in reality, it's better to treat it like a marathon as opposed to a sprint. You'll get longevity out of your accounts and keep them off the radar.

    That's not necessarily true, because alot of people have management companies mange their social media accounts for them that are located out of state and that doesn't break the instagram TOS. I try and do everything from the same IP, but sometimes that's not always possible. I try to keep atleast the same IP in the general location.. i.e. eastern US, midwest US, etc. But typically aslong as you're doing it from the same country you should be fine. Some of the accounts I purchase werror created out of country, and I'll switch them over to a US ip, change the email, and reverify it with no issue.

    Thanks for the feedback. I was thinking that I need to try this. I know their IP address but my question is how do I cloak my IP and find an IP I can use that will be close to them?

    there's no solution yet, but this is yet another good reason to start creating our own accounts instead of buying them from Russian hackers.

    Same here. Especially with aged accounts.

    Hi, I also had a problem with Instagram. I did not receive a confirmation code on the phone, I had to write in support, but no one ever answered me. I had to remove two-factor authentication to get into my account from another device.

    You need to find a proxy provider that has IPs in the city where your client is located. There are some here on the BHW marketplace.

    It's always worked for me. I don't handle IPs that are outside of my client's city. Of course, small town IPs near the large city are OK. But, running an IP from Boston, because your client is in New York City is not something I would advice.

    Please, let us know what experience you have running from different IPs.

    For me it does not play a role if I create an account in one city and run it in another one.
    It's like traveling with your phone to another place.

    I think im going to try to use web poxies located as close to my client as possible. Ill keep this thread updated with my progress. I'm not sure how cost efficient this is and I have clients all over the US and a few international. Can anyone recommend web proxy sites that have a bunch of different city locations?

    I think OP is referring to another thing. He has a client in a certain city, and OP runs bot from another IP for client services.

    You created, run, and own the accounts. So those accounts are never used in two different cities on the same day.

    Try sslproxies and the others on the BHW marketplace. I've tried them all, they all have their good and bad. They will all have dns leaks at one time or another. I test everything, so I know.
    As of now, haven't found a 100% perfect provider.

    Yeah SSLPrivateProxies all day!
    Their website, delivery & support sucks.
    But the proxies are king!
