    Just tried on three of my private proxies. Set up new gmail each time (which has now burned my phone), and each time FB says they require phone verification. Are they doing this for everyone now, or is my proxy burned from before I had it, or something else? Use something instead of gmail? Some other potential issue?

    Need to set up a half dozen accounts. What's the recommended method these days? Really prefer not to buy them if possible just in case seller decides to hijack them after they are built up, and also want to pick names, etc.

    You are likely exposed at some level. This is most often the IP that has been flagged. Certainly you need to employ the best practices between each account creation run ... make sure to always use the same IP/proxy with any given account, and expect that absolutely minimal activities are likely to trigger a phone verification event. Seriously - almost anything you do once you get an account will likely lead to phone verification needs - so one really should develop a phone verification process if one will be invested in this social network or one SHOULD actually buy PVA accounts in your situation.

    Where you only need such a low quantity of PVA, it's going to be very cheap overall to buy, and is going to save you a whole world of heartache assuming you find a solid provider.

    Based on your current experience, and surprise that you are getting phone verification events so much - I'd strongly encourage you to just buy accounts. I've spent MANY a night solving facebook phone verification event triggers, so I know it's not worth the trouble when you don't actually need a PVA method, but just need a few accounts.

    I think its the problem with your IP. I just created 3 accounts yesterday and it didn't ask for phone verification

    Ok, so...

    What about the names? Isn't it an issue if I buy pva then change the name on the account? Am I stuck with the name it gives?

    Looking to create accounts for particular cities (London, Miami, New York, etc) Does this influence how I should do it?

    With PVA, I don't ever need to RE-verify? Obviously I'm not going to be able.


    Also, maybe I should clarify. I'm not just trying to spam groups. I want a miami profile with 5k relevant miami friends, a London profile with 5k relevant London friends, etc. So, that's going to be a lot of time and effort invested, so I'm not looking at these like burners, but rather that I can share the load for the group postings so this one does these 100, the other does the next 100, etc.

    Also, with buying accounts, I need the email used to verify too, right? Does that come with it? And... I've heard Twitter horror stories where pva seller had the master email account used to set up the one used for actually creating the TW account, and after buyer spent time, effort, and money building tons of followers, seller used master account to gain control of email, then used email to gain control of TW account. How do I make sure this can't happen when buying accounts?

    And... if it does turn out to be that my private proxies are all triggering phone verification, are they still usable to run the pva accounts, or do I need to get new virgin proxies?

    You might have re-verification issues with PV accounts. My advice would be buying verified Google Voice accounts, and then verifying the Facebook accounts with the Google Voice accounts. That way, you will always have access to the number and you will be able to re-verify if needed.
