    Hello,

    A persistent issue started to happen with FL Instagram, a week ago, I share the details below. In practice, it makes any new account setup in FL Instagram very difficult or impossible.
    We have been using FL Instagram over a year, managing hundreds of accounts, so we are no newbies on that, it is not an easy error caused by simple ignorance, otherwise I would not post it here.

    THE ISSUE :
    The issue happens when setting up a new account (never logged in to Instagram with FL before), using a new private proxy (never used to connect to Instagram before, provided by sslprivateproxy). When trying to login for the first time to Instagram (in FL activity log), we get this error message from Instagram :
    1. Instagram has temporarily blocked this IP/proxy. You may need to switch to a different IP/Proxy when trying to login with an account.
    2. Last response code : 400 -> checkpoint_required was received from Instagram
    3. Unable to login to <account>. Please check your proxy and also your username/password.

    Wait a few hours, and sometimes the error is gone! The error happens for new accounts we try to setup in FL, at random times of the day, because during certain hours it works fine to setup new accounts.

    Again, the setup process has been the same over the past year, working fine, this error is brand new.

    SUSPECTED CAUSE :
    The error is NOT triggered by an abusive/aggressive behavior using the proxy. We A/B tested in details, it does not come from the proxy nor the vps (as we tried with different providers).

    The error may be from the software FL Instagram itself or Instagram's new recent implementation? Or another reason if someone knows more about it?

    -> Let us know if you experienced the same issue or have ideas/insights on that.
    -> Any alternative software to FL Instagram? We love this tool but we may have to find another software.

    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Remy

    if you login manually you will see that there is a notification that says that we found something suspicious and if you were you that you logged in before ... if you click yes you are recovering your account...
    Also dont use same proxy for more than an account the same day... you can add 2-3 accounts per proxy but one every 2-3 days... ;-) hope that helps

    Thanks for the insight. Did you ever observed the exact same issue on FL Insta?
    We do 4 accounts per proxy, the FL Insta threads usually recommend 5 maximum. 2-3 sounds low, any testing that led to that conclusion?
