    Is there a way to lock someone out of their account? Possibly by trying to log in to their account several times but failing there by locking the account and having Instagram flag the account? I think someone is doing this to me, not sure. If there are other ways that people can flag your accounts please let me know. I'm getting tired of my accounts having to go thru security checks or being logged out for no reason. Thanks!

    Are you running bots on your account or logging on from many different locations?

    Both... I have Instagram accounts that I use long term that only get run on the bots very very very little. Not nearly enough to get flagged by any means.... THEN I have throw away accounts... These are accounts that I run 1k likes every 2-3 days until the burn out after a couple of weeks, then I start new ones. It's the former that shouldn't be getting security checks at all but they do. Even when I haven't ran them on the bot after the previous security checks, which hasn't happened before. I suspect someone is doing something that is causing my accounts in good standing to auto-log off and require me to log back in with a security check. The good standing account are ran on one comp on one internet connection, and the throw away accounts are on an entirely separate comp on an entirely different internet connection. Bottom line, is there a way for someone to cause Instagram to log you out of your account and require a security check to log you back in?

    There are still lots of things to consider but most likely it is something you are doing wrong. How many accounts do you have setup this way? Are they on your home PC or a VPS? Are they using proxies or your PC / VPS IP? Does each have it's own IP or are they sharing?

    I have maybe 90-100 accounts. The long term accounts do not share an IP with the throw away accounts. They are not on the same network at all, so there is absolutely no way to tie any of the long term accounts with the bot-heavy accounts. I know someone is doing something to my long term accounts to get them to log off suddenly, but I don't know how they are doing it.

    The questions I mentioned were only releveant to the long term accounts, not the total ones.

    Sorry about that. The long term accounts, I have only have 6 of those, do share an IP. I only bot only 1 of the long term accounts each week, so not even once a month. I don't normally do proxies, but I have. Can't remember the last time I was logged on to a proxy server tho. I run the other throw away accounts successfully for about 3-5 weeks before they get booted, not all the time tho :) And that's running 1k likes, over a 3 hour period each, per account every 72 hours.... That works well, but I'm stumped as to why my long term accounts, that are no where near abused, get logged off randomly :/

    To be positive you will have to make one tweak at a time. Can I ask how often you login and how often you are kicked out? I'd say there is a good chance it is IP related. I recently had an issue with three accounts of mine getting the boot, I moved two to proxies and they started working fine, with the final one I tried to let it sit for a while and then work on it but continued to get the captcha screen, I would wait a week to run it and then make it only follow every 2-3 minutes and a small amount per day but it would get the boot(captcha) instantly or almost intantly, I ended up getting it a dedicated proxy of it's own and I haven't had a single problem since then. So while with the information there are still more things to check but from my experience I'd look into the IP's first. One other thing, I had this problem all the time when I used ninja pinner or whatever that piece of shit was called and I couldn't get it working for the life of me, things got much better when I changed the bot I was using.
