    So I'm making my first post after I've googled a lot, asked lots of people on Telegram but I seem to miss some things or miss some knowledge regarding Instagram (which is maybe even applicable to other social media platforms).

    I've been reading about automation, running Instagram accounts, bots and what not and I still have some questions which will hopefully be answered. And I thought, if I have these questions boiling in my head, others may too...

    Is it possible to run 10 instagram accounts on one IP without getting banned by Instagram?
    The reason why I'm asking this is because people buy proxies and they only run 2/3 accounts on them to avoid from being banned. Two scenarios which I think Instagram won't ban: 1) A huge family of 6 members, everyone running 2/3 Instagram accounts. 2) A social media agency who grows their clients' Instagram accounts.

    So basically I would like to run 10 accounts with (very low and human behaviour-like) automation running on a VPS (bot yes) and manage 5 of them on my iphone and 5 of them on an ipad mini.
    So do I still need a proxy while I'm running the automation on the VPS? Reason why I ask this is because I also bought proxies for doing this but I didn't get it to work with this automation tool and I had lots of failed login attempts whereas I had to ask for a login code (email etc).

    The only thing I can think of is that the automation is running from one IP but also from one MAC address which is different for every device. In other words: you can run 5 instagram accounts on one IP/MAC and not more? Because of this you need a proxy and to be sure, just run 2 or 3 on one proxy.
    I'm sorry if there are lots of questions which are already answered, if that's the case please link me through. Also if anyone knows why I'm getting these errors in my automation tool (FL, error 400 and 404), please let me know.

    Have a nice day all.

    You won't get ban for running 10 accounts on same IP.
    You will get baned for running 10 accounts on same IP if you are doing lots of daily actions.Everything is related to your actions.
    Also running many accounts on same IP increases the risk of geting all of them baned,since they will be linked by your IP.

    Yes, kinda makes sense. But if you're living in a house of 10 people with everyone being Instagram addicts.. it doesn't mean they have a chance of being banned.
    And then there's the question, what is 'lots of daily actions'. So you could narrow it down in an automation tool, take some breaks in between .. and copy the human behaviour of someone who uses Instagram a lot.

    I have internet caffe, and can tell you situation with FB. Hundreds of people come and log in from same computers same browsers and very frequent IP matching , and nobody ever got ban. Do you know why? Nobody uses account to earn money or steal peoples attention. So if you want to have a lot of accounts on same IP , following criteria must be fulfilled :
    1) accounts must be made elsewhere
    2) they must be real, with human actions, statistics that do not deviate from average users, without spam history or spam reports
    3) no commercial intent

    FB owns IG, meaning that similar algorithms are applied. If you are regular consumer on their network, you don't have to worry about any technical obstacle. Some of our computers have 10-15 account selectable pictures on FB login page(only password to be entered). Never had a single ban in last 5 years. Problem is that you don't want to be regular obedient user who is there to be stuffed with ads, to scroll your feed, to like share and comment without advertising your shit. And they will know that you never click on clickbaits, never browse and inspect other users, don't interact with them in a normal expected way, and only then, they will follow technical clues to terminate your account army. They will sum up all mini-red flags, and i think there are around 100-200 different yellow-orange-red flags in existence in their system.

    DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THEIR SYSTEM. They cannot be summed up in 1 page basic 100 IQ method.
