    no, you don't need a proxy for managing one account except if you got your IP banned from instagram previously
    and yes, you can schedule the tasks

    Nope, using your own IP is better anyways.

    If your IP is blacklisted then yes.

    Otherwise, you shouldn't have a problem using your home IP.

    If you are using it on your own PC then its a better choice. But I you are using VPS, you need to check if the IP is clean.

    IG doesn't generally punish rectroactively for using the same IP. As will be the case for most mobile-based apps since thousands of users could be using the exact same carrier IP address, even Google has relaxed their standards/limits due to that.

    hi guys, nice info. this is just the same question i keep asking how important the proxy role in FL.

    so when i should start using proxy with fl ? beside the blacklist ip problem.
    is it still safe to use own ip when i manage 2-5 account ?
    and how can i check if ig is blocking my home ip or not ?
    thanks

    If you get asked for phone-confirmation on a certain IP across multiple accounts i would consider it burnt and never use it again.
