    I'm using profit redirect to cloak my website and sales page. Got everything working properly and posted my link to my account with no issues.

    EXCEPT for the fact that Instagrams built in browser is tricking my own cloaking software into redirecting actual users to my safe page instead of my sales page. Everything works on desktop, but on mobile it doesn't.

    Anybody else running into issues with this or have a solution?

    I used bit.ly for my bio link. This isnt the issue though. The issue is Instagram seems to be rerouting mobile traffic to make it appear to websites like mine that the user is coming from Instagram. This causes my websites cloaking software to send that traffic to my safe page which has no affiliate links on it. I want to send actual users to my sales page with affiliate links but they cant get there because of Instagrams browser tricking my software.

    Im hoping someone knows how to make an exception in cloaking programs for this situation.
