    If you add proxies at FL:

    You can do this eather in the proxy manager or direct on each account.
    The question is what is the difference ???

    if i like 1 special proxy for 1 account its better to do it
    - direct on the account entry ?
    - on the proxy manager where you have to use this format - or ???
    "InstagramUsername:InstagramPassword:proxyIp:proxyPort:proxyUsername:proxyPassword"

    if the proxy is down what will happen in each case?
    i like to avoid that it post without a proxy for sure......

    This should be a different hread altogether.

    Long story short:

    every on-line website, service or platform can see the IP from where certain actions where performed.

    best way to understand is through social media.

    best example is from social media.

    Some people are running tens of accounts from the same PC. Using automation tools.

    In order for those accounts to look legit and to ring-fence their actions, people will assign a proxy for each account.

    Thus, when they will connect the accounts to the underlying social platform, they [the accounts] will look independent to one another.

    So if one account gets block due to various reasons, the other accounts are protected.

    Hope I made it clear :)

    Proxy Manager makes it easy to import large amounts of proxies. For instance, I use around 50 proxies for my accounts. I just paste all the proxies in the Proxy Manager and then add as many accounts as I want and FL automatically assigns each account a proxy from the list. Hope that Helps. Good Luck

    I will create a new thread on this. Thanks for the tip. But, sometime, facebook does verify accounts by asking for government-issued identification

    I won't be using Facebook unless I have a local business. There are other social media platforms where you can get engagement and scale your operation too... without all this 'bureaucracy'

    I've been using Proxy Manager with no problems, you just set acc / proxy in settings and when you add accounts it will add each account the relevant proxy on the list. Plus this has nothing to do with PVA...

    This is right proxy manager could be very useful if you know how to use it.
    But for the pva you're totally wrong. I've experimented it too much time ;)
