Hello guys, My name is StanMan and I have been involved in IM for over a year now and as many of you here, my journey began from BHW. That's why I decided to give back to this community by helping out on how to manage your account profiles in a way they don't get blocked/restricted/challenged. In terms of my experience I currently manage over 300+ account profiles with high followings and over 50+ currently in development, all of which are either in Linkedin, Pinterest, Twitter or Facebook. I use these account to sell products of my clients and promote occasional affiliate links. During my journey, which is still continuing btw, I have had over 100 accounts restricted and hopefully I learned a lot. And today I will try and share my knowledge with you. So, how do you not get your social media accounts restricted? First of all, let's define the reasons why your account can get restricted. Basically, from my experience, it boils down to two main factors: your connection and your activity. Connection is how to you connect to a given account (IP, browser, cookies, etc...). Activity is what you do on that account (follow, unfollow, message, pin, like, etc...) In this thread I will be talking about "connection", because it's a very broad topic and can be applied to all social media sites. Furthermore, what I have noticed is that the majority of times, when I got restricted was when I needed to manually login into my accounts. Another reason, why connection is important is that if you are a sane person and you do not blast 1000 followers a day on a new Twitter account, you can still get restricted if you screw something up on manual connection. This guide is for those people, who need to manually connect to their accounts from time to time to check or do some action the bot cannot. So let's get into it! The main reason why any social media site may restrict your account is because if they know you have a lot of them, you are probably abusing their system. And they can discover this by tracking your web fingerprints. So what fingerprint they can track? When you are logged in, here's what social medias, like Facebook, can see about you: IP address Cookies Browser type, user agent, operating system Local storage Canvas footprints (this is not the full list, but works for me) Let's take a look at each one in more detail and see how you can get away with it. IP Address This one is huge. If you have over 10 Twitter accounts following other users from the same IP address, you will get restricted! Even worse, when you will try to create a new account from the same IP, you are screwed even before you start gaining followers. Solution: Buy proxies and assign 1 proxy per account. I don't care if some of you say that the limit is 3, 5, 10 or 666 accounts per proxy. If you value your accounts and serious about making money from them, you have to have 1 proxy per account. In the eyes of social media service, you will be seen as a user, who is always connecting from the same geographical place with the same ip address, like as if you have a static IP address on your home computer. Cookies Also, very huge! If you logout from your first account, change your IP address and then log in into a second one straight away, you are also screwed. Why? Because a social media website, like Linkedin, tend to place a tracking cookie that you have already connected with a different IP with the same browser instance. I have had countless accounts screwed like that. Solution: One way is to always connect with clear browser history and cookies. Either you are using Firefox, Chrome or Opera to manually access those accounts, set the setting to always clear the browser history (this will include cookies as well) or use anonymous windows. Now whenever you close the browser and open again, you will have everything clear. Of course, logging in with a clear list of cookies is a bit suspicious, but I don't think it's that bad. You probably will need to have consistent cookies, when you are working with eBay, Amazon or Linkedin accounts. I would still recommend this for every service you're using. See the section for "Useful Software" tool that will help you have consistent cookies for multiple accounts. Browser type, user agent, operating system Essentially, if you are changing your browser and running it from different operating systems, some services can mark it as suspicious activity. However, what I have noticed, most social media sites don't really care about, but site like eBay, Amazon and Linkedin probably do. Still, regardless of what website you are accessing, I would still recommend using consistent browsers and operating systems for your accounts. Local Storage These are the files, which are stored on your computer, which is also a way to track you. I recommend clearing your local storage from time to time. See the section for "Useful Software" for tools to clean your local storage. Canvas footprints This one is pretty interesting and you might only want to consider this if you want COMPLETE anonymity for you accounts. Canvas can be used as additional entropy in web-browser's fingerprinting and is used for online tracking purposes. I will try to write a separate article on this topic. See the section for "Useful Software" for tools to hide canvas footprints. Useful Software MultiLoginApp - this is the software I use, whenever I need to manually access any social media accounts. It has functions, like assigning proxies to accounts, preserving browser cookies, choice between browser types and cleaning local storage and even shadowing canvas fingerprints. It also has a feature to share access to these accounts to VA's without giving away accounts passwords. I have never had any problems with accounts being restricted while using MultiLoginApp. Software link: http://multiloginapp.com/ Multifox - this is an extension for Firefox and it basically can assign and preserve cookies for each tab instance. A very useful tool, if you want to do some quick changes. However, you can't really change the proxy on each tab. If you change the proxy, the IP will change on all tabs - be careful with this one! Software link: https://getmultifox.com/ Foxyproxy - a good tool, a FireFox plug-in, for switching between proxies. This is a really good plugin if you have a lot of proxies and have difficulty managing them. You can assign a color and name to each proxy and then connect to them with a simple click of a button. Highly recommended! Software link: https://getfoxyproxy.org/ Clear Console - also Firefox plugin for clearing your local storage - use with caution! Plugin link: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/clear-console/ Canvas Shadow - again, a Firefox plugin for generating a new and consistent canvas shadow. I don't use it, because this functionality is already included in MultiLoginApp. Plugin Link: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/canvas-shadow/ Bots / Automation Software Usually bots and other automated softwares will preserve your cookies and proxy. It will also connect with a clear local storage and connect with the same browser (user agent). However, it greatly depends on the software you are using of course. I might sound like a madman, but from my experience, bot connection is the safest connection! Why? Because they probably have thought through the process of connecting securely to your accounts, but YOU haven't! I will repeat and say that the majority of time you will get banned or restricted due to your bad manual connection or if you are a retard and follow 1000 profile/hour. At least that's my experience. I hope this helps... I will be glad to answer some of your questions! COME AT MEH!
