So i'm currently having a HUGE instagram issue it's not only becoming frustrating, it's also having an actual effect on my accounts.

So the other day nearly all my instagram accounts that I run asked me to add a phone number to send a security code to. I added one, it sent the code. I completed this process on them all.

Now the issue is still there, on one of my accounts that same process has happened 3 times in 1 day. I'm having to repeat the security code process on all my accounts at least twice a day. And it's really starting to impact my engagement and hashtag reach.

Anyone know how to fix this?

I'm not botting that's the thing. These accounts are all "organic", i've never used growth software for them.

Well, there is no reason a normal person has 5 accounts on 1 device. So, it makes sense that Instagram is very suspicious of these logins. This seems like a very easy way for Instagram to "catch" you. Of course, Instagram is always updating their software to ban and catch more botters/hackers/spammers.

It's perfectly legit for someone to have 5 accounts on Instagram, after all they are the ones who set that limit. And they want people to make niche accounts because in the end it makes them money so it makes no sense.

But the weird thing is it's only happening lately.. Like literally within the past week, it's super annoying! So how do I fix the issue even for just the 5 accounts that are on my device. I'll invest in a cheap device for another 5 accounts, but what am I meant to do with the current 5 on my device. I do need to fix this!

You need to use lesser accounts on your device then. Investing in a cheap phone and use 3 accounts per phone will solve the problem.

Normal people do not have 5 Instagram accounts. Just because Instagram allows it, doesn't mean it's normal. Of course it makes sense to have extra security features for people who are acting abnormally. It helps them catch hackers and spammers who hurt their user experience. When you manage more accounts, it makes sense to face more security issues and be subjected to more scrutiny.

The first thing to try is managing less accounts. Start with just using 1 account on the device and see if you still get the problem. This is how we troubleshoot things.

Maybe instagram detects that you're using a different device and IP that's why it's being locked up

What you need is a static IP address. If you're connecting through 4g your IP could keep changing, causing ig to think you are logging in from different places all the time.

Sometimes even ATT does it, if that's the case you need to purchase a private IP or ask your provider for a static IP. You can check by going to CMD and typing, ipconfig or whatismyip.

If it is a string of random numbers it could be the issue, maybe even a browser issue.
