    I've been thinking a lot lately of ways to avoid having to pay for all the proxies you need to automate all of your accounts on Pinterest with tools like Followliker etc.

    And I thought, with your modem/router every time you either disconnect then reconnect, or reboot, you get a totally new IP address, so then I wondered, is there any reason you couldn't setup an Imacro script or something to reset your IP every X minutes? If you did this, then by the time your automation tool is logging into your next 10 accounts or whatever, you'll have a new IP, therefore you won't be using the same IP for more than X amount of accounts.

    Is this a good idea, or is there something I'm missing.

    If this could work, then it would save us all a lot of money.

    I suspect the success of this method would be limited.
    1) Your new IP probably comes from the same small subnet your ISP assigns to connections from your area
    2) Do this on a big enough scale and you might find your ISP will have a problem with you if social networks start flagging these IPs

    Apart from what already was mentioned above (especially point nr. 1, personally i don't think nr. 2 is a valid fear), accessing accounts from always a new ip is not a good idea. Social media accounts should have an ip tied to them and change it only if necessary. Yea, there are users with dynamic ips (e.g. mobile ISPs users), but they most certainly won't keep changing their ips every time they access their accounts. Some sites log you out, when you try to access it with a new ip and you need to log back in. Constantly logging out and in doesn't look natural and you might hit different roadblocks, verification requests.
