    Anyone else had this issue?

    Trying to understand how it got to that point, what's next and how not to do it again.

    All 4 accounts were using same IP
    Registered with the same phone
    All verified by phone/email
    Age of the accounts 2 years-2 months
    Settings are not aggressive, 60-70delays for follow/unfollow

    These were my original accounts so I didnt want to switch to poxy. All other accounts that were created after 4th, have assigned private proxies

    well, i'm not sure what triggered the pw reset request exactly, it can be that more than one of those above at the same time, but your 60 secs delay isn't too conservative, you didn't mention it, but if you run the bot 24/7, that's almost 1.5k follow/unfollow a day

    did you comment? did those accs have the same url in the website field by any chance?
    you must have done something else what you haven't done before or else why would you get the boot only now?

    I started getting captchas once a day, so I increased the delay actually and I would pause the account for 24hrs.
    No URLs in any profiles. Only, follow/unfollow/likes.

    Just curious as to why you have your follow delays so close? It would look more natural if it were 140-180 for example..

    4 accounts on the same IP with no proxy is too much IMO. I would put a couple of them on a proxy (you may have to reset password once more after this).

    How do you run FL? On a server or home PC? If your accounts were created with your home IP and then you started using a server (from different country) it usually triggers a password reset.

    but do you consider following/unfollowing 1.5k people natural every other day as in everyday users do that in your opinion?

    I had the same problem, normally I run 6-8 accounts in FL, no proxies but I pause some of them and only run 5 accounts at the same time. At the same time I normally check the accounts in my phone so I switch them during the day. Yesterday I got Instagram to reset the passwords of 3 accounts. How can I fix this? What is the best way to protect mi IP? Does Instagram put a kind of flag in mi IP? Heelpp please friends
