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.
