    Aloha Everyone!

    I just bought followliker and created a account yesterday...

    I got it banned already !! I followed 300+ people in the first day.. so my mistake


    How many days do you guys wait until you start following people?

    I currently have my settings to follow 50 people per day with like a 2-3minute delay + the 4 to 5 minute change task in general settings while likeing 150 things per day with a 30 second delay..

    What's the risk of this account getting banned?
    How can i make a mass amount of accounts?
    How do I create accounts with proxies?


    Sorry for all the questions ! I'm just a noob in the botting instagram realm so any advice will be much appreciated !!

    First read this awesome tutorial, written by a BHW member: http://imristo.com/the-ultimate-followliker-instagram-tutorial/
    Second: after creating a fresh new account I usually let it sit for 1 week and then start following. During the waiting period I'm only liking and commenting photos manually.
    Third: In order to create a mass amount of accounts you need private proxies.
    For example if you want to create 30 IG accounts, you will need no more than 10 proxies. ( 3 accounts per proxy).
    For me SSL Private Proxies is the best option for buying proxies.

    Hi this what works for me

    - Verify your accounts .

    At first try not to DM or comment
    Make sure you shuffle tasks always


    use a wide delay time difference like 20 to 100 or something like that

    I hope it is of help to you

    IG is banning no matter what. I am convinced it's the proxies that are being issued by private proxy providers. No matter how old the account, whether I'm just doing liking or what the settings are, the accounts are getting banned one by one. Gotta be the proxies...

    Virgin proxies and 1 proxie per account thumb of my rule

    you can earn the proxie money back via shoutouts income.

    sone not all but some proxies have been classed as spammy but
    saying that i using only 1 proxy per accounts seems to work grate....

    i use tge same proxie to crate the account aswell and even create the
    Email eith it aswell .

    if i need multipule accounts i buy them but i also give them there own proxies.

    you can use mutipule socail bots and gain heigh end traffic ....

    Start extremely slow for the first 2 weeks. Best to use on proxy per account. I use 1 proxy per account from SSL proxies.

    I had one account 2+ years old follows/unfollows/likes 500+ every day, fast speed 15-25 sec, no problem for the past month.
    Another account 2+ years old (10x more followers then above account), follows/unfollows/likes 300+ every day, slow speed 100-200 secs, got temporary 12 hour ban yesterday. I've now set this account to crawling speed and halved the follows/unfollows/likes.

    All others doing fine. Some here get away with faster and more follows per day for months/years. Others get stung after a few days or months.

    I don't know if Instagram can tag the computer you're using with the bot and either gives it a green light to accounts handled through that device, or takes a closer look at the accounts. Maybe programmers here can chime in regarding this.


    Instagram is weird. Like they say in the burbs "slow the F down", and stay under the Instagram cops radar. Makes no sense losing an account you've been working on for months. Yeah, we can start all over again, but it sucks.

    I'm not sure how to set up my accounts...


    feel like i got more confued then anything... I don't use a proxy because i'm going to only start off with 3 accounts on personal computer and maybe one more using my personal phone/hotspot.


    Anymore advice?

    If you are doing 4 accounts under the same IP, Instagram will catch on.

    I haven't start my 4 accounts yet.


    But I been reading through forums that 5 is max but best is 3 per IP ?

    Maybe I misread or misunderstood

    Verify e-mail and phone number and you can follow like 900 each day no problem.

    Honestly you're right. I dont think I did. Creating this new account I had to manually log into the instagram website with my username and password and it gave a confirmation on following webpage I verifed it..


    I don't remember doing that for first one.



    Any recommedations on how many IG accounts I should manage on my desktop computer. It has the juice to probably run like 10 or 15 .... but I know I will need proxies... Whats a good number to have until I purchase proxies?

    Instagram marketing is overrated. And they are very strict and only becoming more so.

    Instagram banning has nothing to do with verification or not. All my accounts are email and phone verified. All use virgin 1:1 ssl proxies. All are warmed up for 2 weeks, most of the accounts are 2+ years old.

    I stay well under the 200-300 followers a day after 2 weeks. I just got one temporarily halted for 12 hours.

    Some here can follow/like 1000 per day, others can barely do 60 after 1 month. Instagram is doing something that we have not found out yet.

    I think it has to do with device login, but I'm not a programmer. Or maybe, Instagram has a new algorithm for when we bot and shuffle tasks. Somehow, Instagram is catching on.

    Or, maybe we need to warm up accounts for 2-3 months before going over 100 follow/likes per day. I just don't know.

    • People join to share photos. Have lots of photos (9 minimum for me)
    • Don't mass upload photos as soon as you open an account, people don't do that
    • The average user on any site/app/platform joins with some trepidation, they don't follow/comment/like 100 times an hour in their first day
    • IPs. Software is always best. Bot has your credentials, bots logging in from a different IP.
    • Fresh mail. Fresh number each account

    All this said I've had accounts closed down where I've let them set for a week / uploaded a photo a day / not used bot for another week. Then others I've mass loaded 9 photos, and gone straight in at full speed and they're still going strong. Part of IGs current stringency is the obscene amount of porn clickbait on even obscure tags.

    Why doesn't anyone think it's the proxies as the cause? Doesn't matter if they're virgin and dedicated. As long as Instagram has a mark against a certain c class, any account could get banned. I esp. say this as I just had another account get banned that is on a virgin dedicated proxy with no other of my accounts on it. Safe liking settings and no following being done. No prior warnings.
