    Hi, Say the one of my IG accounts in followliker is not logging in, is it possible to know if the problem is due to the account being banned or the proxy being banned?

    grab your favorite browser and:
    - go to the profile page: instagram.com/username, so you'll see if the account is banned or not
    - try to load instagram.com with the proxy, if it loads, the proxy isn't banned

    it can be that the account "just" requires password reset

    if you don't have anything which would automate the task, i guess it's tough luck, but you can put together quick something with imacros

    or if you can grab a copy of modded xgram, i think it will still do the trick, it has a proxy tester, which tests the proxies against instagram and it also has an account tester, which would test the accs via profile url, i'm not sure if ig changed something since then, so it may no longer working, but the proxy tester should be good or just get a proxy tester, where you can set a site to test proxies against, a member made one not too long ago called proxy spirit, with that you can set a custom url to test against

    use curl to read/download the instagram.com/username page and probably simply judge by the size of the file.
