Hey guys,

I'm sure most of you guys know Instagram is getting pretty strict lately, i see a lot more verifications and captchas needed for my accounts recently.
I haven't had to phone verify any accounts in 1-2 months of botting 110 accounts total but recently been getting phone verifications, password resets, captchas on about 1 out of every 5 accounts.

Here's the strange part, when i try to phone verify these accounts with a different phone number than before, the accounts automatically get banned. I'm not 100% what is the cause of this, i'm using an SMS provider to verify, and it can be on his part due to banned numbers or instagram is just cracking down.
The first 2 accounts, i assumed maybe the accounts got banned before i entered the phone verification, but i started checking more carefully, i was able to log in and fully function the other accounts but after i try to phone verify, the account immediately gets banned and disappears.
In total, i lost 4 accounts and ~16k followers.

Anybody else seeing stricter limits and verifications?
Try to stay safe, everybody!
 
You're leaving footprints or your pva providor sucks. Much like proxy suppliers, what's to stop them from giving the same one out to dozens or even hundreds of different people? All it takes is one bad apple to start the snowball effect.

To be completely honest, i think its my provider, i try my best to not leave footprints.
Those 4 accounts were all from different proxies too, and i use 3 accs per proxy.
Now i have 6 more accounts needing phone verify and im looking whats the best way to go about it because they're about ~30k followers total and i'd hate to lose more.
 
Pretty much same thing happening to me except I haven't had a problem verifying the numbers with different numbers. I'm just slowing things down a bit till things get better
 
I hate to say it, but I think the days of social media spam is coming to an end. All these social outlets are getting smarter and stricter by the day. The only ones left standing are genuine accounts of high quality. You can scrape by for awhile, but you won't pass a manual review with a porn blog and affiliate links everywhere, that's why I avoid these niches. Much like seo, we have to adapt. If you want to make money in the social game its best to pick a niche that isn't high risk, no porn, forex, Viagra etc.. Build a list, use a sales funnel, market related products, and don't be spammy. The Lazy mans so ial game is over. Time to build by hand if you want a quality list.

That's concerning,

Glad I'm using new physical SIM phone numbers so hopefully won't have issues.

You can afford to lose 4 accounts when you have 100+ though :cool:

Botting isn't "spam" you sound small minded, you talk about affiliates/ sales funnel/ list's like Instagram is part of web 1.0, you should use Instagram as a media entity similar to a magazine which can then drive traffic to your store or sell shoutouts.

I agree with this "The only ones left standing are genuine accounts of high quality." but that does not exclude bots that have a engaging followerbase due to high quality consistent content, at the end of the day winner win and losers lose.
