    Hey.
    Do you guys bother to fill in the bio for your bots? Does Instagram anti-bot system look at this kind of thing or not? Thanks guys.

    So you start w/o bio - for security reasons, presumably? And what do you use bots for? I mean, to support your main account, or else?

    Try to include 'random' bio inside the profile, more conservative approach to look less dubious. Bots do have this function.

    It is always risky to add links to your bio. You might get banned for that.

    Well, I have link in a bio for my main account - the one I actually use bots upon to grow it. And its pretty fine for quite a long time. Do you mean its risky to have lots of accounts with the same link?

    A couple of months ago you would get banned instantly once you put on a link in your bio. Since then I haven't tried it. And I am talking about one link on one account, not multiple ones.

    No it was 100% the link, if you dig deep enough in this section, you will see tons of threads about people complaining getting banned for that.

    I guess a filled in bio makes the profile look less fake or generic so its better to have it than not. Links in bio are risky tho

    getting banned for putting in a link is a myth to me. it's because of the dirty proxy you use.

    the worst case scenario that happened to me is a warning message like "domain xxxx.xxx is not allowed" i even tried like 5 times with all kind of masking. even that didnt get me banned.

    I never said I used a proxy, and I never said it happened to me.
    So you gotta chill out with your accusations.
    I am just stating what happened a couple of months ago to A LOT of people here.
    Maybe this doesn't happen anymore.

    no, you need to chill out.
    100%? so you are just echoing what other said.
    pretty sensitive for a parrot.

    Fill out the bio first and then rest the account before adding link.
