    Before I begin, I went through 5 pages of threads here to give me an answer to my question and sufficient to say it is safe but I've personal experience to state otherwise.

    I've been trying to run a sort of a fashion blog for the past month now where basically I take original pictures from Instagram users via email and post them on my page.In the past month Instagram has deleted me thrice now(all 3 accounts were max at 100 followers and around 30 posts at time of deletion) and I assume its because I've been doing a lot of following and commenting on random people's pages to be a part of mine which I guess is being considered spam.I assume this is exactly what a bot does ? I've never actually used a service like this before and I'm worried if I buy a single FL license and my account gets deleted again, $50 will go down the drain.

    The other and cheaper alternative I have whereby even if I loose my account there won't be big of a loss is Instagress but I saw some follow posts about accounts being blocked because of it.

    Any help will be appreciated.
    Thank You.

    You asked permission from users of their photos or you just them? If the first, that maybe the cause of your accs being deleted.

    Botting is no different than you manually doing it yourself. The difference is that bot can do it faster than you and that is how IG catches it.

    Permission obviously.
    Like I said, I took the originals over email, usually pictures that aren't on their profiles and posted them.All of them were cool with it and were the same people on all 3 pages so doesn't seem like they had anything to do with it.

    Now the thing is, I'm as slow as a snail in doing this manually and if that's getting me deleted already, I'm sure a bot will get me deleted in a day.

    These 2 accs were created by you or you bought them new? There are so many factors as to why your accs got deleted. It is rarely for your acc to be deleted if you were doing it manually and it seems to be legit since you ask for permission of these images.

    I'd say you were reported by a few IG users for whatever reasons.

    Created by me, like I said, they barely had 100 followers.
    This time when I was deleted was after I commented something on someone's profile, I was automatically logged out and my account was disabled.I assume I was reported by some users as spam and that set of the chain plus it also seems like IG rules are more stricter if you have a low follower count along with other restrictions such as being unable to tag more than 2 people in a picture.

    Nonetheless, if I buy a single FL license and the account associated with it gets deleted, that's it right ? or can I associate another account with it ?
    Since I'm a first timer to all this, I'm thinking of using Instagress cause its cheaper but if FL is worth the money then I'm willing to go for it.

    If you get banned, just get a new proxy.

    Then execute a different strategy this time. If it gets banned, rinse and repeat.

    Trust me, I went through hundreds of accounts to figure out how IG works for the most part, lol.

    you can use FL with different accounts. you'll just need to delete old one from it and input the new one. that's it.

    I've created 5 accounts and used the same settings I use for my 1year+old account and no bans yet, so it must be your fault you keep getting banned.

    What is your logic saying Instagress is cheaper? Are you planing to only use it for a few months and stop? FL is a one time fee and has regular updates when IG changes things around. Granted, I know nothing about Instagress, but I do know it's a reoccurring payment that drove me away from it or any services that is reoccurring.

    Have you created them recently ? As in the last 3 months or so.
    I used to have a similar account an year back, 2.5k followers and never got banned, did everything the same.

    My logic is that if I don't get banned in a month, I'll switch to FL.
    Although as someone pointed out above, I can input a new account and delete the old one in FL so I guess I should go for it.(mind you I'm planning on buying a single account license here, not the unlimited one)

    Edit: I just need to confirm that if I buy a single account FL and my Instagram gets deleted, would I be able to add a new account in replace of it or would FL be linked to the deleted account permanently ?
